Manually going into the Microsoft Endpoint Manager portal to check for failures is not an ideal workflow if you ask me.

Let’s look at what options are available and how we, as administrators, can manage them.
Windows 365 Enterprise can be used with predefined Windows 10/11 images, but you can also use a custom image when deploying cloud PCs to users. This might be a good idea if you wish to preconfigure something in the image before deploying.
