Use Managed Apple IDs with Apple School Manager
As an administrator or manager, you use Managed Apple IDs in three main ways, with accounts, classes, and roles.
Accounts: Administrators can complete a range of tasks within Apple School Manager to manage accounts. For example, you can assign roles or reset passwords for a specific set of users.
Classes: A class is a collection of instructor and student accounts. Classes have at least one instructor added when the class is created. After a class is created, it’s used with your mobile device management (MDM) solution to enable classes to appear in the Classroom app for iPad and Shared iPad, and to simplify the experience for students using Shared iPad.
Roles: After a Managed Apple ID is created for a user, the administrator can then assign roles for the user. These roles include manager, instructor, staff, and student. These roles define which tasks users can perform in Apple School Manager with their Managed Apple ID.
In addition, the administrator and manager can manually add an account at any time, such as when a temporary instructor is added to your school. You can also view and edit account information, such as the user’s name, ID number, grade level, and more. Depending on your role, you can also reset a user’s Managed Apple ID password, send them a verification code so they can sign in, and deactivate or restore an account.
