Installing GoodNotes for Institutions via Jamf Pro

Please note: While our License Keys do not need a reinstallation of the app in order to install effectively, we would encourage all users to ensure they have an appropriate backup in place for their data before completing the deployment. This can be achieved through iCloud Sync, Auto-Backup or a Manual Backup.

After receiving your License Key from our GoodNotes Licensing Team, you may be wondering as to how you can install the key via Jamf Pro using the .plist file found in our MDM Installation Article.
