Engage Overview and FAQ

Engage collects anonymous usage analytics as part of an ongoing effort to continuously improve your Jamf Pro experience. It also allows Jamf Pro to display timely and helpful information from directly within the Jamf Pro interface, such as the following:
  • New feature highlights for you to explore

  • Tool tips to guide you through complex workflows

  • Alerts to inform you of known issues, security vulnerabilities, outages, changes to planned upgrades, and other important updates

  • The Jamf Engage Resource Center, where you can quickly access product announcements, documentation, Jamf Nation, the online training catalog, and the support portal

In addition, Engage enables you to provide helpful user feedback to Jamf directly from your Jamf Pro environment.
Note:

Engage is enabled by default upon upgrading to Jamf Pro 10.9.0 or later.
