Windows 10 device users can view the installation status of applications in their Workspace ONE catalog.

Reason

Applications for Windows 10 devices are often large and take several minuets to download. In the past, users did not have a visual representation of the application installation. If an installation took 10 minutes, a user might decide the installation had failed after five minutes and prematurely cancel the installation.

Workspace ONE now displays the installation status of applications so users can estimate when downloads complete and when applications are available for use.

Required Components

Ensure that you configure the required components for the software distribution system. This system, also called software package deployment, is required because it communicates the installation status to Workspace ONE on devices. For software distribution requirements, see Requirements to Deploy Win32 Applications for Software Distribution.

Other Components on Devices

  • Workspace ONE v3.0
  • Workspace ONE UEM App Deployment Agent v2.1 (available in the Workspace ONE UEM console v9.1.2+)

    The system deploys this agent when you enable the software package deployment.
