Hi All

 

Is there any way to change the App source without impacting users? 

 

For example, apps that were assigned as Required from the App Store, could these then be deployed from the VPP?

 

I don't see anything obvious and I'm thinking:

 

  • Set App Store apps to Uninstall assignment
  • Set VPP apps to required

Any other suggestions?!?

Nope that isn't possible. These are limitations in the way apple devlivers the apps.

I actually got the following to work with a seamless UX:

 

  • Set App Store apps to Uninstall assignment
  • Set VPP apps to required

@Stuart King That is an option indeed. What than happens is the app gets uninstalled and installed again. I'm wondering tho, what does a end user experience? Is there a moment in time that the user misses the app on his device?
