Provide the possibility during installation to give the Device a predefineded hostname
In an Enterprise Devices do follow a Special naming convention. Currently it is not possible to rename the devices or give the devices a predefined Company hostname during installtion. It would be good if at least an Input field would be available to give the device a hostname. Or if the Admins could predefine a hostname during the enrollment process of the Hardware ID.
Thank you in advance
The new naming features are not sufficient for us as we need to follow the naming conventions imposed by our central asset management system. There is no way for us to escape from this.
My suggestion: like the new feature to set the name of the assigned user in autopilot we should have something corresponding for computer name

And since the week of August 27 it is possible to define device names through autopilot profiles, also by use of %serial% or random digits. Usage is described with the feature.

You can create a custom policy that can set the hostname to something like xyz-%SERIAL% during enrolment.
Agree on this, need to be able to pre-define a name for all devices.
