Enrollment enhancement - set iPad name to username used for enrollment

When iPads enroll into JAMF, the default iPad name is iPad. We would like the iPad name to default to the username that is registering the device. Since this will eliminate multiple devices with the same name of "iPad" and it will display the username as the device name we will be able to manage the devices much easier. This helps when adding and removing to a smart group because we cannot tell who the device belongs to in that area.

This could be useful as currently you have to have someone run through DEP so the device registers before you can force a name.
