Schedule Single App Mode Changes Overnight
We are running iPads as Kiosks and only want to push updates to them overnight when users will not be effected, Ideally this would include all config changes but most importantly these:
- Non VPP App Updates (enterprise apps)
- iOS updates
- Other Configuration changes

Hi Luke- Some customers achieve this by creating a "maintenance" device group and then use the API to move devices between the maintenance group and their native group at a scheduled time via the API.
If you are only needing to update an *enterprise* app in single lock mode, you can simply run the update command during off hours using the API (https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#update16). Single app lock does not need to be disabled when updating enterprise apps.

Is there anyway I can do this right now with the API? - it's quite important that kiosks are not updated whilst a user is in the middle of a session.
