Implementing MAID in your school district


We are looking to implement MAID's for our staff. We have staff have their work email associated with their Apple ID. How has that process been moving from their work email to their personal email? Training, documentation, etc.

Also since commerce is disabled with MAID, how does that work if a teacher sees a free app and wants to try it out? Do they have to log off the MAID and log in with personal AID, installed the app, etc? What happens to all of the app they have installed using their old work apple id?

I am sure I will have additional questions, but trying to get started. Thank you!

We are using the MAIDs with teachers. We associated their work emails with the MAIDs, we just changed domains and were new addresses.

In our school, if it is a paid or free app, we download it and push it out through the MDM. It is an easy process for our site. For us, if the school owns the devices, the apps on that device should be owned by the school. That is how we have handled it in our school.

Hi Tim,

If you'd like to discuss Managed Apple IDs further, you can get connected with your dedicated Systems Engineer by calling 1-800-800-2775 and choose option 4 to get connected with your school's Apple sales team. We would love to explore the use of MAIDs in your environment further.

We have our Google Workspace federated with ASM. We try really hard to minimize logins at our school so telling people (students and faculty) that their Google is their Apple ID has been great. It was not always a happy story. We had to migrate from consumer (work) Apple IDs and that was a bit of a mess for some, but it has been great since the switch.

As for "testing apps", we push all apps out via our MDM for teacher testing. We have an app request form that asks if an app is being tested or deployed more broadly. This helps us track requests and document any non-starters that an app might have.
