    Hi All,

    I have a question regarding app store updates.

    I supervise a fleet of macs in our company right now. We let people install what they want, but we want to block app store updates (specifically Keynote). Reason being is we use Keynote for presentations, so we want everyone on the company to be on the same version.

    Is there a way, to block users with Admin privileges from updating and or installing newer versions of Keynote from the mac app store?

    Thanks for any help!

    If your users have admin privileges you're pretty much out of luck. You can install a configuration profile which can set the App Store to only allow system updates (Apps like Keynote would not be able to be updated) but an admin user can remove the profiles.

    Thank you for the answer!

    I'm trying to either figure out how to lock it down, or lock the app store to a single username and password. One that can't be signed out of.

    If your users have admin rights, you can't do it.
