How to configure ZuluDesk Student (iOS)

To use ZuluDesk Student, a couple of steps need to be taken.


Steps to take:

  • Install the app on the students devices;
  • Create user accounts if they don’t exist yet;
  • Login at the Student app. 

Install the app on the students devices:
The easiest way to distribute the Student app is by purchasing it via VPP and deploy it to the devices. 

  • In Jamf School configure VPP if it’s not already configured;
  • “Buy” the free ZuluDesk Student app at;
  • Optionally: In Jamf School navigate to “Dashboard” and click on the “Sync Now” button to force a sync with VPP to make the purchased app appear faster;
  • Navigate to “Apps”, find the “ZuluDesk Student” app and apply a scope which contains all students that should install the app;
  • The app will no be distributed to the students devices.

Create user accounts (if they don’t exist yet):

You can skip this step if you already have user accounts for your students in Jamf School (with an username and password) OR if you’re using LDAP authentication;

  • In Jamf School navigate to “Organisation” -> “Import / Synchronise” and choose a method to import your students. Optionally, you can choose to create them manually at “Users & Groups” -> “Overview”.
  • You can use the “Generate Accounts” feature to generate a large number of accounts for the students at once. To do so:
    • Navigate to “Users & Groups” -> “Overview”;
    • Select the students that you want to generate an password for;
    • Click on the blue “Generate accounts” button;
    • In the popup that’ll appear you’ll have the option to enter a message that’ll be send to the student by mail and the password strength;
    • Click on the “Generate” button, the students will receive an e-mail with their username (e-mail address) and generated password.

Login at the Student app:

  • After the app is pushed to the devices, the student needs to login with the credentials that’ve been e-mail to them.

You’re done!

The students now have the Student app installed and configured. As a teacher or parent you now have the ability to send a message (attention screen) or take a quiz.
