Enforce Mobile Device Name: change in system initially

When using the enforce mobile device name, it'd be great to have it change it in the system, then when the device checks in, the name is set on the device accordingly. By having it changed in the system first (after you click save), it helps with organization and finding devices since I'm guessing many places of some sense of naming conventions in place. Currently it doesn't change until the device checks in, and even then, I've seen what I've entered in the name field, revert to something else which is another issue that needs to be addressed. Once you type in the name you want, it should stay there, not revert or change to something else.
