Managing Books


Books (.epub, .pdf) are managed differently based on the device they are deployed on.

On iPhone and iPad, books must be deployed through the device channel, meaning they will be available throughout the entire device for all users.

Please note that books cannot be assigned to macOS devices.

Through the Applivery dashboard, navigate to any of your devices from Device Management > Devices (1).Then go to the Books (2) tab and click the + Assign Book (3) button.You can either select an existing book from the list of assets or upload a new one by clicking the Upload new asset (4) button.Choose the asset that you want from the dropdown list and then click Add (5).
The book will be automatically deployed to your device. You can check the installation status from the list of Books. You can force the Sync process by clicking Action > Sync policy (6).
To remove books from the device, simply click the three dots (7) at the end of each book and choose Unassign (8).
