G Suite and MDM results of activation

One of my clients is using G Suite for their corporate email, docs, etc and they want to turn on MDM in G Suite.

I would like to know what users will see on their mobile devices when I turn it on?

Do they get a pop up?  Are their phones dead until we "do something" to authorize them?  

I have this fear that I'll turn it on and all of the phones will stop working until something happens so I'm looking for someone who has used MDM thru G Suite who can tell me what will happen to the phones.


PS: Android phones - all of them.

The users do not need to do anything or will see any pop-up.

As long as the users sign on the Android devices with their corporate Gmail account, MDM will be enforced on their devices.
