iPad Restriction Settings

All devices enrolled in our MDM receive a base set of restrictions based on where the device is assigned and who enrolled it.

Restriction settings are set by using the site abbreviation value in the MDM and who the enrolled user is. This helps to ensure that every device receives the correct restrictions for the assigned user.

When multiple restriction settings overlap, the more restrictive will be respected at all times.
