Intune scanning is a feature introduced in Lansweeper 7.1. If you are using an older Lansweeper release, you will need to update by following the instructions in this knowledge base article.
Intune is one of Microsoft's cloud-based services similar to other Azure services. It allows companies to manage mobile devices, PCs and applications. As of version 7.1 Lansweeper supports scanning of mobile Intune devices like iPhone, Android and Windows Phone devices. For mobile devices that are registered in an Azure Active Directory application, hardware information, installed software, device details, network details and user information can be retrieved.

  3. Wait for your scanning schedules to trigger or initiate an immediate scan by hitting the Scan now button next to the scan target under Scanning\Scanning Targets.
