Installation Requirements for Goodnotes for Schools and Businesses

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.

If you are looking to install Goodnotes 6 in your school or business but you are unsure if your devices and software are able to run or install the app, here is a list of requirements needing to be met to ensure a successful onboarding of Goodnotes 6 for your organisation.

At this moment in time, Goodnotes for Business/Enterprise/Schools is not available for use on Android or Windows operating systems and is only available on Apple devices. If you're interested in us bringing this functionality to those operating systems, let us know by submitting a feature request

Installation Requirements:

In order to use Goodnotes 6, you will need an account on Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager in order to download the app and distribute to your end-users.

You will also need a Mobile Device Management (MDM) software that supports AppConfig for deployment, as we require the AppConfig feature to support the installation of our License Keys. 
We recommend using MDM providers like Jamf Pro or Jamf School for seamless deployment and management of Goodnotes 6 within your organisation.

Before reaching out and receiving a License Key, it would be best to find out if your MDM provider supports AppConfig deployment. To do so we would encourage speaking with your relevant MDM provider to get the most up to date information regarding their software capabilities.
