Modifying an existing Mandatory App policy

expand collapsive

Good afternoon. We are wanting to add another app to a policy we have. Will it completely reinstall the policy on those devices or will it only add the specific app to any tablets that don’t have it? We are worried about the policy being reinstalled completely, as that would cause issues for us. Thank you for any help regarding this

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out. Happy to help.

    When a Mandatory App policy is modified, it will not re-install the apps present on the devices. If any of the concerned devices do not have one of the mandatory apps installed, the app will get installed on the device when the policy is saved. Also, if any of these mandatory apps that are present on the device is not the updated version, the app will get updated.

    Kindly use the help link for adding Mandatory Apps via a policy.
