Is it possible, thru Jamf, to get a report every morning highlighting which staff iMacs have not backed up in the last 24 hours?

You can create an advanced computer search and setup the criteria as needed.
Search tab: Check the Save this search box and give it a name
Reports tab: Define as you need there and click Configure Email Reporting
For daily automated reports check the Schedule automatic email reports and select the frequency

If you are cloud hosted you may need to adjust the time zone info within your profile.

Thank you for the response. I am currently trying to get the smtp server in Jamf working. We use GSuite here and it seems difficult to configure. As for the reports/search, I do not see an option for detecting status of backups. Any suggestions there?

Hi there, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the "Macs which have not backed up" piece of my question. Thanks!

What is the Backup solution used?

Hi! We use Timemachine on the staff and faculty macs, but we do not backup the student macs because they get wiped regularly anyways!
