Change name from Ipad to something else

We're in full DEP deploy mode, except I need to change the System Name property of the iPad to something else because we have a bunch of them running hotspots. The System Name is what IOS uses for the hotspot SSID, so having them all named "iPad" is sub-optimal.


Normally I'd just change this on the About screen, but I can't figure out how to change this in Meraki. Anyone have any ideas?


Disregard, I'm an idiot -- just remove all the restrictions by untagging the device, change it, and then reassign it to the group. I blame Friday.

Not an idiot! We're all super busy. And, leaving the corrected post will likely help someone, somewhere.
