I am looking for how to add computers in Intune that already got their work account added from the time before they had a license that entitles them to intune.

Deleting and adding again will help, but is there no other way to make this happen automatically?

Specifically: we switched from Office E3 to M365 BP which now allows us to use Intune. End users don't notice that switch of license, but we want to get the PCs in intune....

Would love to know your thoughts, please leave a comment.x
