DEPNotify App Not Found in /Applications/Utilities

Hello... I was just made aware of DEPNotify this week and have spent the last couple of days trying to implement it. I read and followed information from https://hcsonline.com/images/Signed_DEPNotify.pdf, and https://gitlab.com/Mactroll/DEPNotify and I'm using the script from https://github.com/jamf/DEPNotify-Starter.

I have my policy set to install depnotify-with-installers.pkg and run script depNotify.sh after enrolment. It doesn't load up after enrolment. I can see the DEPNotify.pkg in /usr/local/depnotify-with-installers/DEPNotify.pkg, but there is nothing in /Application/Utilities.

I'm obviously missing a crucial step, could anyone point me in the right direction please?

It looks like the pkg installation is simply failing, but I can't say why. Can you install the pkg manually?

Thanks @alexjdale I ended up re-downloading the depnotify.pkg from github, uploading again to Jamf and changing my policy to use this new one instead of the depnotify-with-installers.pkg I had created and it works now.
