You can specify this under the enrollment profile in Mosyle, My School > Apple Basic Setup > Enrollment > Automated Device Enrollment, click on the enrollment profile, then when you select to activate "Multi-user (Apple Shared iPad)" on the profile there is a configuration option to "Configure user storage space".
This may be more about the Mosyle MDM that we use, but perhaps not. Has anybody seen the following behavior when using shared iPads?: The storage gets automatically pre-allocated based on the number of resident users, whether they need the space or not. This means that my devices reach 0% storage capacity within a few days of users logging in. When I check the number of resident users, it shows 8GB allocated for each user but their actual storage requirements are all less than 1GB. When I've spoken with Apple, they tell me it shouldn't work that way. I'm wondering if anybody has had similar issues and if so, what MDM are you using? I'm trying to determine root cause so I can fix it.
