I am trying to take advantage of the VPP Device Assigned Option. I have an app Grandma's Preschool
The app does say "Device Assignable"
I started the process of adding the app into Casper. However, under the VPP tab I see the following:
" Content not available to assign to mobile devices"
Has anyone else come across this?
Are they previous purchases or did you just purchase? These apps were previously purchased about a month ago. However, I just tried downloading it to the JSS.
Did you purchase the Apps as Codes or Managed Distribution? App Codes ( I did upload the codes to Casper)
Did you set up the Token for the VPP account on your JSS? Yes
Ah... Never mind what I said. They need to be purchased as Managed Distribution to be distributed to devices. I'm pretty sure Apple support can convert the codes to Managed distribution for you.
Only Apps purchased as "Managed distribution" will be able to utilize device assignment:
As long as the codes have not been redeemed, you can have Apple convert the codes to Managed Distibution:
If they have been redeemed by an apple ID...then you have lost that app seat. Depending on your school's purchase process...it may be easier/faster to just purchase a new set using "Managed Distribution"
You will have to contact Apple to get those codes converted to Managed Distribution. They will ask for the Apple IDs you have for your VPP accounts and they will convert any codes that have not been redeemed.
For questions about codes that appear as redeemed (like the single codes you used for Configurator), I was told to contact Enterprise Educational Support at 866-752-7753.
I did call the number 866.752.7753 requesting our Redeemable Codes be transferred to Manage Distribution. Apple pointed me to the following website:
I hope this helps someone else.
Thank you all again.
