Regarding Issue 126802, UI for creating Chrome Device hostnames, can this be in the Admin control panel
Reported by, Dec 21 2016 Back to list
UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS x86_64 8872.70.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/55.0.2883.87 Safari/537.36
Platform: 8872.70.0 (Official Build) stable-channel panther

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open network router
2. Search for connected equipment
3. No information on Chrome OS devices

What is the expected behavior?
The ability to give devices on the network a name so they can be easily identified. Easier than identifying by IP address.

What went wrong?
They don't currently do this,

Did this work before? No 

Chrome version: 55.0.2883.87  Channel: stable
OS Version: 8872.70.0
Flash Version: Shockwave Flash 23.0 r0

I'm unable to comment in the other thread, but I would like to request that this ability to add hostnames, if it is ever added, be added into the G Suite administration panel under Chrome Devices so I can assign hostnames to all my devices from a single convenient location.

I would like to be able to do this also for my devices.  Please add the feature.

Without having the hostname configurable and available, it makes troubleshooting wireless, dhcp, etc issues difficult.  Please add this so that we can add a hostname to our devices and then identify them in our router, switch, dhcp, etc client lists where connected hostnames are displayed.  Thanks!
