Knox Configure Routines

Knox Configure supports adding routine applets, which involves codeless automation for use cases that allow you to program a response to events based on different factors. These routine applets are features powered by the concept of automated actions triggered by context, to make device use more streamlined. The automated response actions are triggered by context clues such as time, battery level, and charging status. An example case where locking in certain phone settings while workers are on their shift could look like this:

IF: Time period: 10 AM - 5 PM AND location: Hospital Area.

THEN:

  • Turn medium power saving mode on.
  • Keep the phone on low volume/silent mode.
  • Switch the device from cellular to hospital Wi-Fi.
  • Change lock screen shortcuts.

Simply put, with Routine Applets you are able to easily apply dynamic event-based settings to your devices and apply actions in devices based on defined conditions rather than fixed settings.

The following table shows examples of triggers (If) and actions (Then).
