      Article Summary

      If devices in your organization are managed through a central desktop management tool, you may prefer remote installation instead of having team members download and install the app on their own. The following guide contains instructions for ManageEngine, JAMF Cloud, and SCCM. If using a different tool, please contact us via email and our Customer Support Team will be happy to provide you with a suitable solution.
