Feature request: assign friendly hostnames

  • 1.  Feature request: assign friendly hostnames

    Wondering if we could assign a friendly hostname to devices in the app/portal. I have about 10 devices that present the same hostname. I'm working on delivering a unique hostname via DHCP, but it reads that capability needs to be enabled in the dhcp client (which I have no control over).

    @bcrawfo2 The ability to set friendly names is not supported in Instant ON AP's.

    I can see it's not supported right now.   My point was to suggest this as a feature request.    If there is some architectural issue that makes this impractical (such as the naming of numerous client devices across all deployed InstantOn devices would be too much storage)...then I could understand.  Just trying to put a bug in someone's ear to make the product better.

    Maybe we could have a section for feature requests on this discussion group.

    Thank you for the feedback, @bcrawfo2. We will consider this as we work on the roadmap.
