Location Support Overview

As mentioned in our ZuluDesk 6.0 feature overview 

The biggest and main addition to version 6.0 is the support of Locations in ZuluDesk, this is an expansion on our existing Parent-Child feature and will drastically change the way these environments will work. These locations will be manageable from the Main Environment;

With multiple locations in your environment you're able to manage these from the Main Environment, this gives System Administrators a much smoother workflow as you're able to push down Profiles, Apps, etc. to the locations from the same place rather than having to swap environments constantly.

Creating Locations

A location can be created under the Locations in your Organisation tab:

After you've navigated here you're able to create new locations and manage your existing ones.

After you've created your environment you can also select these in the top right, your main location will always be shown first.

Location information

When you have devices enrolled in multiple sub-locations this is easily shown by the new Locations column in most tables. You can also search for sub-locations in these columns.

Smart Groups

When you've created locations you can also use these in our new smart group filter. Apps, Documents, and Profiles pushed through this Smart group.

Enforcing settings

In the main location you're able to enforce settings for your sub-locations, this is available for the following settings:

  • Organisation Settings > General
  • Organisation Settings > Apple Classroom
  • Organisation Settings > Shared iPad
  • Organisation Settings > ZuluDesk Self Service / Teacher / Parent
  • Organisation Settings > Enrollment

Teachers and Parents for multiple locations

When your school has teachers that teach on multiple locations, the teacher needs to be created in the Main location. The same goes for parents that have children in multiple locations.
