Moving from User- to Device-based Volume Purchasing Assignments

We FINALLY have Apple School Manager..whew.

Two questions

  1. If we scope machines to get iWork from JAMF will it overwrite the version installed by signing onto the App Store?

  2. I tried twice to install iWork automatically and wasn't successful. Self-service works. Can't see launching Self-Service on 700+ endpoints.

Hey there!

On iOS and iPadOS it does that the VPP version of iWork apps overwrites the App Store version previously installed. For macOS, I believe I've always deleted the App Store version from the device, THEN scoped the VPP iWorks license to automatically install. I realize you asked this way back in March, but wanted to contribute in case you hadn't found a solution yet.
