Fleetsmith handles operating system updates two ways: through notifications and through enforcement.
1. Notify users of updates
You can choose to remind your users via push notifications when their OS version is out of date. This notification will be visible in the Fleetsmith agent by clicking the dog icon in the menu bar.
You can configure notifications by following these steps:
2. Enforce latest version
Fleetsmith will force restart devices outdated operating systems—even if the devices is in use—at a pre-determined deadline. You can set the minimum version to be installed and the date and local time of the enforcement.
When you choose to enforce an update, Fleetsmith handles notifying your employees via macOS notifications to ensure they have enough time to prepare for the forced restart! We also give your employees the option to update early, so that they can update at a time that’s more convenient for them.
