Release Notes is our monthly update that highlights the new features of Mosyle Manager as well as recent product improvements we’ve made to help you manage Apple devices in your schools and/or district. Here's what we launched in October!
Now parents are able to create a ScreenGuide account and manage the child’s device through the Web Panel.

We have improved our Installation Status tool, providing you with more relevant information on the status of the Install App commands sent to your Apple devices. Now Admins can see Waiting Status details within the Mosyle Manager Dashboard. Navigate to Management > Install App > select the Install App profile and click on View details.
Now you can manually refresh the information displayed on the Mosyle Manager Dashboard about VPP licenses and devices enrolled. Navigate to My School > Apple VPP or Apple Integration DEP > and click Update.
Important note: sometimes the updated license count could take longer as Apple sends to the MDM server updates of licenses in increments of 100 licenses.
With the iOS 11, you can add donated iPads to your DEP account using the Apple Configurator 2 software. As you need an MDM provider to complete this process, Mosyle Manager is fully prepared to help you with this. Check out our step-by-step guide in this article. If you are using Mosyle Manager, start to enroll the devices in DEP by creating a Apple Configurator profile.
As we keep building impactful tools to support large-scale deployments, now it’s possible to filter the management profiles selecting the desired Location!
Now Admins are able to configure the Active Directory (AD/LDAP) integration to automatically sync data! Navigate to My School > Active Directory > Select the profile and check the “Sync automatically” box in the Synchronization tab.
You can export any type of alert into XLS files! Navigate to Management > Alerts > Export Alerts > select the t ypes of Alerts > and click Export info to download the XLS file.
We have designed new Academic Year Tools to assist Admins update data. Now you are able to organize users data according to specific attributes. Navigate to My School > Academic Year > and select the tools you want to apply.
Now you can resend the command to install the applications on just the non-installed devices. Navigate to Management > Install App > View details of the profile and click “Resend installation command to non-installed devices”.
Now Mosyle Manager shows right on the list of Grade Levels if they were created within the Apple School Manager. Important Note: When configuring this type of data in ASM, it’s highly recommended to do any edition just in the Apple School Manager.
Now you can check out all the profiles assigned to Shared iPad Carts! Navigate to My School > Shared Carts > View profiles Assigned. It’s possible to see the Install App Profiles, Install Book Profiles and MDM Profiles.
