The specified app must be installed on the device. You can customize the app name on the lock screen on the Customize menu label on the lock screen tab.

This button displays the last time the device was connected to the server, which helps inform the device user that recent updates and actions pushed to the device might still be pending. To make use of this feature, the device must have an active network connection. To access this feature, admins need the Last Seen permission.
