Password Sync in Mac App Launch - End User Communication Toolkit

Early and frequent communication with your end users is critical for IT Admins. But, it can also be a lot of work.

With that in mind, we’ve provided a toolkit of emails and knowledgebase articles you can use to communicate with your end users about the macOS Password Sync feature, how to use it, and other resources you may need to make going live with the app easy.

This toolkit is a work-in-progress. Let us know what works for you, and what we could simplify for you to educate your users, and ensure their success (you can give feedback at the bottom of this article).

You may download all of these resources here (Will also zip up different docs to share via s3 once verified), otherwise you may view these resources below.
