I use the oofhours to create a custom naming convention and it works perfectly.

Hi @Andy1192.,

 

I have also written a blog post about a naming convention Intune. I am not 100% sure if this is also applicable for Hybrid devices. But you can find my blog post here:

But my advice and preferred method is most of the time: use the default options, but properly your company has some requirements and you can decide to choose for the not default option.

 

For hybrid devices it is not possible to set the device name in an Autopilot profile, you have to configure the domain join profile in Intune. The options are very limited as you can see in below image

Kind regards,
