Salamander Active Directory supports Apple School Manager

Apple School Manager is a simple, web-based portal for IT administrators to manage people, devices and content all from one place. Managed Apple IDs are created automatically when you connect Apple School Manager to your school’s register data, and they give students access to iCloud, iTunes U and Shared iPad. If you’re not using these services you can even deploy iPad without an Apple ID. Students simply turn on the device and get to work, no sign-in is required. If your school’s needs change, you can create Managed Apple IDs and distribute them to students later.

Salamander Active Directory can be used to link your school information system, whatever it is, to Apple School Manager. We can either create csv files for you to upload manually, or automatically upload the files into Apple School Manager so the process is fully automated.

As with all our products, the link with Apple School Manager is completely customisable. The csv files can be generated for the entire school or filtered by any criteria if you want to initially test with a subset of data. In addition the data in each column can be customised exactly how you want it e.g. whether to use legal or preferred names.

If you are an existing customer and would like this set up please email support@salamandersoft.co.uk, otherwise for more information please email info@salamandersoft.co.uk.
