Geofencing, blocking apps, how to

Hi,

while doing a Webinar for SM, the speaker showed us it is possible to block apps, when you are out of range of a location.

A example, an App was installed, when someonewas in the Headquater. When he was more away than 1km the app was uninstalled.

After getting back in range of the geofence it was installed again.

I can´t find where to do so. Can anyone advise?

 

Thanks!

OK, got it now... quite easy, actually 😄

 

Create a scope for geofence (configure -> geofencing) and apply it to device with a tag, for example "recently-added"

Go to Manage -> Apps , choose the app you want to geofence and add a "policy tag", thats it.

I haven't done this particular case, but it will use "compliance" as a test.

 

When you create a policy, say that the policy only applies to devices with a tag using either of these magic tags names "Devices currently compliant" or "Devices currently violating" - depending on weather you want the poilicy to trigger if someone leaves a geo-fence - or enters a geo-fence area.
