You need to set up an sToken before you can invite users to the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP). See Set up a VPP sToken.
  1. On the menu sidebar, under MANAGE, click Users.
  2. On the Show users page, you can invite all users or individual users to Apple VPP:
    • To invite all users:

      2. Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

      1. Click the required user name.
      2. On the Show user page, click Invite user to VPP.
      3. Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.
    • To invite a single user, when using external user management and the user has no devices enrolled yet:

      1. Click Search and invite a user to Apple VPP at the top of the Show users page.
      2. In the Search user dialog, search for the user either by name or by email address.
      3. In the search result list, select the user that you want to invite to Apple VPP.
      4. Click Apply.

Sophos Mobile Control sends an invitation email to all relevant users.

Users must follow the link in their invitation email to connect their Apple iTunes account with Apple VPP. Afterward, they can install and use the apps that are licensed by your company.

Note:

When you are using external user management and invite all users to Apple VPP, users that do not have an email address assigned will be registered for Apple VPP, but do not receive the link to connect their Apple iTunes account with Apple VPP.

For information on how to complete the VPP registration process in this case, see Invite users without email address to Apple VPP.
