Jamf Nation and Jamf Account for Apple administrators community

With the introduction of the new Jamf Nation and the launch of Jamf Account, our latest post provides more detail and insight into what you will find in each location.

At Jamf, our mission is to help organizations succeed with Apple. With that resolution comes the desire to provide value to our customers beyond just the products and service. As a result, we created Jamf Nation and Jamf Account as resources for our growing Jamf community.

You may have recently read about the new Jamf Nation and the launch of Jamf Account. With all the exciting enhancements happening, and some elements of Jamf Nation moving to Jamf Account, we thought we’d make it easier on our customers and provide more details and insight into what you will find in each location.

Jamf Nation

What is Jamf Nation?

Started more than 10 years ago, Jamf Nation is the largest online community of Apple administrators in the world. It’s likely that you are a member, as people of all skill levels, verticals and geographies utilize the free and peer-led space to share best practices, gain insight, brainstorm and support fellow admins who use Jamf and manage Apple in their environments.

What should you use Jamf Nation for?

Discussion forums: Community members can easily locate the best forum to engage with their peers, find answers to their questions and see any posts from Jamfs regarding products.

Group hubs: With the introduction of group hubs, our community members can engage in spaces that holistically discuss topics or themes that interest them. For example, our Healthcare and Education group hubs are great places to post if you’re looking to start a conversation around an idea of how to leverage Jamf products in these areas. We keep those hallway conversations going in the JNUC group hub. And User groups now have a space where they can engage with forum posts and update members with meeting notes, post notifications about events and show off their cool user group logos.

Feature requests: As part of the rollout of the new Jamf Nation Community, the way we gather feature requests from customers shifted to a new ideas portal, accessible within Jamf Nation. Our customers have great feature requests, and we want to keep hearing them. Customers can access the portal at ideas.jamf.com.
