Edit work app

After you have approved an app in the Google Play for Work Store, you must configure the app in Sophos Mobile Control to make it available to your Android for Work users.
  1. On the menu sidebar, under CONFIGURE, click Apps and then click Android.
  2. On the Apps page, click Android for Work apps.
    This opens the Android for Work apps page that displays a list of all work apps that you have approved in the Google Play for Work Store.
  3. Click Retrieve app list from Google to synchronize the changes you made in the Google Play for Work Store. After synchronization, users can install the apps through the Google Play Store app in their work profile.
  4. Click the blue triangle next to the required app and then click Edit.
  5. Use the Page and App category fields to define the location of the app in the Google Play Store app on the users’ devices:
    1. In the Page list, select the page in which the app will appear. The page items are pre-configured by Sophos Mobile Control and cannot be changed.
    2. In the App category field, enter the name of a category in which the app will appear.
      When you start to type in the App category field, a list of matching categories is displayed. If you enter a category that is not available, it is created.
  6. For paid apps, the Edit Android for Work app page contains a Licenses field. Click Show next to the Licenses field to view or edit the license information for the app.
    It may take a few seconds before Sophos Mobile Control retrieves the license information from Google.
    1. In the Licenses dialog, you can see the number of used and remaining licenses for the app, and the Android for Work users that have a license assigned.
    2. Select users to assign them a license for the app, or deselect users to remove their license. Click Apply to close the Licenses dialog.
  7. If the app offers managed configuration, the Edit Android for Work app page contains an App settings button. Click that button to view or edit the available app settings.
    For information on the available settings, see the documentation that is provided by the app developer.
  8. On the Edit Android for Work app page, click Save to save your changes.
  9. On the Android for Work apps page, click Send configuration to Google to send the updated layout information and app configuration to Google.
    Note: If you skip this last step, the app configuration is only stored locally in Sophos Mobile Control. It is not transferred to the Google server and is not available to your users.
After the data is synchronized to the Google server, the work app is available through the Google Play Store app in the work profile. Free apps are available to all of your users, while paid apps are only available to users that have a license assigned.
