    Hi, Brunner.

    It has got to do with your device platform. What devices do you have?

    Thanks and regards

    On Samsung SAFE, Kyocera and LG Gate devices, the regular app installation will do. Apps will be pushed silently. Other Android devices should be rooted or should have the Hexnode MDM app set as a system app to enable silent app installation.

    Here’s how you can do app installation and update in Kiosk mode, with minimal interaction from the user-end.

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    This is due to the recent updates that we have made in the portal. The enterprise app has to be first added to the app inventory by navigating to the Apps tab and can then be pushed to the devices via Mandatory App policy. Please find an updated screencast on the same:

    Check out Enterprise App distribution for more info.

    You can also update the Enterprise app by replacing the APK file.  Check out Enterprise App updation for more info on the same.

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers!
