Configure locations in Apple School Manager
When you sign up for Apple School Manager, the first location is automatically created and reflects your institution name. As you expand your use of Apple School Manager to other schools, you can add more locations and edit their information.

Click Settings at the bottom of the sidebar to view additional information about this institution—for example, the Student Information Systems (SIS) you’re connected to, the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) you configured, the Managed Apple ID configurations for your users, and more.
Edit default password policy location information
Important: If you enter password policy information in the .csv file for your students or staff, that value overrides this location password policy and any password policy previously set. If password_policy is left blank in the .csv file, the default password policy for the location is used for new accounts and remains unchanged for existing accounts.
If password_policy is left blank in the .csv file, the default password policy for the students at the location can be set as follows:
In Apple School Manager , click Locations in the sidebar, then select a location you want to edit.
Click Edit , then change the default password policy.
Add a location

Enter the new location information, then click Save.
Delete a location

In Apple School Manager , click Locations in the sidebar.
Search for a location in the Search Locations field , then select the location you want to delete.
Click Delete Location.
Make sure you want to delete the location. This action can’t be undone.
