    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Hexnode enables you to skip the initial setup options while activating the Mac for the first time.

    To configure the setup assistant:

    1. Navigate to Policies-> macOS-> Configurations-> Setup Assistant and click Configure.
    2. Enable the options that are to be skipped during the device set up.
    3. Associate targets and save the policy.

    Please note that enabling the option ‘Skip signing in with Apple ID’ will automatically skip iCloud storage setup. Also, enabling the options ‘Skip signing in with Apple Id’ and ‘Skip iCloud Storage set up’ together will skip all setup options on your Mac.

    Please check out the help doc on configuring the setup assistant for more info.
