At the Apple Fall Tech Update in October we discussed some enhancements coming to the Volume Purchasing Program. Recently an email was sent out to the Apple School Manager administrators letting them know an upgrade will be available soon.
The upgrade, when available, will not be mandatory. There is a new support article HT208257
called “About migrating to Apps and Books in Apple School Manager” that will help you prepare for the release of Apps and Books.
As a reminder, we are still running the weekly WebEx seminars. Once the ASM upgrade is released (probably this week), the Friday WebEx session, Apple School Manager (ASM): Buying Apps and Books, will be updated to address the changes.
Should you wish to join us for any of the following WebEx seminars you are welcome, details are as follows.
