Transfer licenses to Apple School Manager
Within your institution, you can move licenses from one location to another. You can also transfer licenses in order to consolidate VPP purchases from multiple accounts or to decentralize and distribute licenses to match your institution’s structure. (For example, a location in Apple School Manager might represent a building, a department, or a group.)
To transfer licenses in Apps and Books, search for and then select an app in your library. In the details section, you can view the number of available licenses at each location you have access to.
Click or tap Transfer, then in the pop-over, enter both the number of licenses (up to 24,999 at a time) and the location where you want to move them. The transfer, which may take a few minutes, is reflected in the number of licenses at the new location. The new number of licenses for the location token is also reflected in your mobile device management (MDM) solution. Check your MDM documentation for the expected behavior.
Note: Transfers won’t disrupt license assignments in MDM. Only unassigned licenses can be transferred to another location.
