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 May 2018!
Now teachers can request applications through the Mosyle’s Class Manager app! The leaders are able to allow this feature by navigating to the Preferences tab. The teachers can choose the applications within the Mosyle’s Class Manager app and they will be displayed to the leaders in the Mosyle’s Class Manager Dashboard.
This capability makes it easier to install the apps to the students devices as well as streamline the workflows of educators requests for applications. This feature is available for the Mosyle Manager Premium Plan.
By default, the Mosyle Manager app will always require a password from teachers when they open our application on their devices. Now you can disable the password requirement by navigating to the Preferences area of Mosyle Manager dashboard. In this area, uncheck the box “Ask for password when 1:1 device assigned to teacher”.
Presenting the new device management tool for teachers! It is essential! So we added a new parameter to help you in this task. By setting up this parameter, the new teachers users have imported from Apple School Manager or Active Directory will automatically receive a welcome e-mail from Mosyle Manager.
We optimized the workflow for deploying Shared DEP devices in your school using Mosyle Manager MDM! Now you can create the shared device group right away when creating the Shared Device DEP profile. When deploying Shared iPad devices, you can also select the maximum number of users per shared device.
We improved even more of our Bulk Operations area by launching the Single Shot of Commands and Scripts for macOS! Now you are able to send scripts to macOS devices in volume by navigating to the Bulk Operations area > Scripts. Important note: it’s highly recommended to test the scripts before sending the command to a large amount of Macs!
When creating the Custom Commands profile, select this option for the Custom Command to be displayed on the My Apps tab within the Self Service area.
Now you can schedule the Custom Command to run periodically.
Now Mac admins are able to edit the driver’s printer manually by installing printer using a specific printer driver. Navigate to the Printer management profile to edit this configuration.
Now you can create a Windows Custom Migration management profile and customize the paths configuration for migrating from Windows.
If your school uses AD Enterprise Connect, now you are able to configure the integration with the MDM by creating this management profile.
We keep improving the capabilities to leverage the way you utilize the criteria-specific groups of devices feature in your school, district or university. Now you are able to assign any Management Profile to a criteria-specific group of devices when creating the profile.
In May 2018, we also launched a new criteria for the criteria-specific groups of devices! Now leaders can select the Last beat date as a criteria for creating a group of devices.
Now you are able to create a new Custom Command criteria right away when you are creating a new criteria-specific groups of devices.
Now you can keep track of every enrolled device with the expired push token right away from the Alerts tab.
Now administrators can remove or upload a new user's photo. Select the user, click on the user’s picture and upload the new one.
Save countless hours of IT effort while empowering teachers to manage iPad, Mac, and Apple TV devices in the classroom.
