DocsPlus Universal for iPad

For subscriptions purchased after November 2020.


How can I share my DocsPlus files?

You'd like to share your DocsPlus files between devices or send them to other people.

Can DocsPlus Universal be deployed to multiple iPads?

You have a DocsPlus Universal subscription and want to deploy it to multiple iPads via your MDM.

Resolution

Purchasing

The app itself is free to purchase from the Volume Store in Apple School Manager (previously known as the Volume Purchase Program).

Purchase as many app copies as you have licenses for.

Deployment

Use whichever Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution you normally use to deploy the app to your iPads.

Licensing

To unlock the app, it must be enrolled after installation. This allocates a spare license from your subscription to that specific iPad.

On each iPad, launch the newly-installed app and input both your Organization ID and Enrollment Password codes when prompted.

AutomatIC EnrolLment

If your MDM supports App Configuration, you can use it to embed your codes inside the app during deployment. This will result in each iPad automatically enrolling itself on first launch, without any user interaction.

The exact method varies depending on your MDM. It may involve:

  1. Inputting the codes as separate key / value pairs:
    Key: OrgID
    Type: Text or String
    Value: orgXXXXX

    Key: EnrollmentCode 
    Type: Text or String
    Value: XXXX XXXX XXXX

  2. Inputting an XML code snippet: 
    <dict>
                <key>OrgID</key>
                <string>orgXXXXX</string>

                 <key>EnrollmentCode</key>
                <string>XXXX XXXX XXXX</string>
    </dict>

  3. Uploading a .plist file:

Whichever method you use, replace the X's with your Organization ID and Enrollment password.

We've researched the documentation of common MDMs to provide the following summary table for general guidance (links may have changed since publication).

For precise instructions, please consult the documentation, or contact your MDM provider.
