How to turn on the "Reminder To Enable Auto Backup" popup for managed devices

As a business or school, you may not always have control over how your end-users backup their data and how they keep their information safe. 

As a helpful reminder, we have now introduced a new option flag for backing up data called ReminderToEnableAutoBackup in AppConfig. This can be set by the IT admin and will assist in the creation and maintenance of backup data through our Auto Backup functionality.

If set to true, a popup will be displayed whenever Goodnotes is opened and only if the end user hasn't enabled Auto-Backup and/or signed in to an appropriate backup service.

Once the user has enabled Auto Backup and signed in to one of the available cloud storages (e.g. Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox or WebDAV) the Auto Backup reminder will no longer appear on each time the app is in the foreground.

To enable this feature in your AppConfig deployment, simply edit your existing XML file, or appropriate lines in your deployment to include the following:
