Add the Device Name

Now add the device name by selecting the Device Name tab and again clicking Create. This part can cause some issues. If you are not allowing pop-ups it may appear that nothing happens. In my case, I had to switch from a Safari browser to a Firefox browser.

Once the pop-up appears you will see an empty form box to add the device to. You can't type in the box, rather you click the Select button and select the device from the list.
