Title: Signed up for Avast Education - now what?!
Post by: OLCG on September 27, 2016, 08:51:39 PM
Hi all,
I just signed my school up to Avast Business. I clicked ' the 'upgrade to education' (or similar) and instantly it said "approved" (probably picked up on 'college' in the domain of the e-mail)

I logged into Avast Business and I see my dashboard.

Can anyone advise where I go from here? Is the FREE education package limited to cloud based dashboard? Or is there an Endpoint Manager?

I have 1 x server, 40 x PC's.

I thought the method would be: Download EXE to Server and run, create an MSI to deploy to other PC's via GPO?
On the Dashboard, I can only download exe. The MSI is greyed out and says 'only available to premium customers'.

I would be grateful if someone could advise before I go any further.

Many thanks.

Avast is moving things to the cloud.
You will have dashboard from which you can do things, but the free/education version is limited.

As it says, the MSI is only available for paying customers.

I suggest you look around on this webboard as well as the avast website (FAQ).
A lot has been already explained.
