Use a QR code to point users to the Intune Company Portal app for enrollment

Quick post here, ever wonder how you can create a QR code that points to the Intune Company Portal in the iOS app store (or any app store), and paste it in an email and send it to your end users? Well it’s super easy to do. Simply search online for a QR code generator. Example: https://www.bing.com/search?q=qr%20code%20generator

When I searched for a QR code generator, a result came up inline of my search results and I pasted the URL that points to the Intune Company Portal in the Apple app store and it generated the QR code below.

If you’re interested, here’s the raw data behind the QR code:

Even better, the Intune Company Portal has 4.5 stars, hey that’s awesome!  Ok shameless plug, however it’s really cool to have such a high rating.

Anyway, theoretically you can do this for any app in an app store, whether they’re Microsoft Office apps, 3rd party apps, one of your published apps, etc.

To save you time, I generated QR codes that point to the Intune Company Portal (or enrollment URL in MacOS case) for all the platforms supported by Microsoft Intune:

iOS                                 Android

        

Windows Store            MacOS

        

Note: MacOS points to https://portal.manage.microsoft.com

Here’s an example email I manually created. Create your own by copying a QR code and generating your own custom emails using your corporate email application such as Outlook.  Your users will love it!  Plus it streamlines their enrollment process.

Here an example of using the built-in camera in iOS to scan the QR code.  As you can see it took me directly to the Intune Company Portal app in the Apple app store.

If you’re intersted, for coporate owned devices Intune supports NFC, QR, and Zero Touch for Android Enterprise already, for more information please visit: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/android-enroll

That’s it, I hope you find this valuable when directing your end users to enroll their devices with Microsoft Intune.
