Mac App Store checkboxes greyed out

Schedule Jamf Pro to automatically check iTunes for app updates.
Automatically Force App Updates.

I know I will feel stupid when someone answers this.

Why are the options above greyed out and not editable? For some apps I do not want the app to force the update. I want to be able to test the app and deploy a week or 2 after the release.

Thanks.

If I were a betting man, I'd say both checkboxes are enabled under Settings > Device Management > App Maintenance. That's a global setting, so forcing it on at a global level will check and enforce those boxes for all other apps.

Ah, didn't look hard enough that Excel was the app in question, so yeah that'd be App Updates under Computers instead of Mobile Devices :) Glad you found it.
