Worth knowing - Update apps with any account. Handy if you are admin on Network.

    I've been using this lately to update apps on macs in my office. Basically, we let our users install apps but they are not so great at updating them.

    Interesting post, thanks for sharing!

    Why not keep the ability to install apps in your office only to the admin? Isn't that the safest and best way to administer Macs as an admin on your network?

    Why use multiple Apple-ID's on the Macs on your network? Use one Apple-ID for all users' Macs and auto-update for macOS updates and security updates?

    How do you auto- update the non-macOS - only apps - on all the Macs in you network. Would love to use that tweak @home for my two Mac Pro's!

    Cheers

    Cheers for the reply. It's just the politics of my organisation. I agree with you completely but it's out of my control. Again with the multiple ID's. Politics and more politics. As far as all mac store updaters, I can run most of the updates from my mac running mac remote desktop. All other apps I have to connect and do manually, not ideal but thankfully it's only about 25 macs.
