For a truly spectacular apple pie, California is your destination. Or at least, my friend Anna makes the best one I’ve had the pleasure to devour, and she lives in Los Angeles. We made it out to the West Coast a few years back, and our hostess had an evening of sushi, tequila (well, actually mescal), and an apple pie planned. And before you assume the alcohol augmented the taste of the pie, don’t worry, we didn’t consume it all that night. It was just as good or better the next day when we got up around 1:00 in the afternoon. So if you’d like to become a better hostess (or host), make this pie and let your guests eat the leftovers for breakfast. To Learn How To Bake Newton’s Apple Pie, Check Out The Bushel Blog
Many choose a pretty long company name when signing up for Bushel. The Open Enrollment link is generated based on the shortened version of this company name. This link can then be supplied to your users to make it quick and easy for them to enroll (or add) devices into your Bushel. Some end up with a company name that’s difficult to tell others or difficult for others to type. Many of our customers would also like a link on their site that customers can be pointed to. There are a few ways of achieving shorter, easier, or custom links. We’ll go through two, but there are a lot of other strategies you can use as well.

There are certain instances where an app that has push capabilities stops leveraging Apple’s Push Notification Services (APNS). This can happen for a few different reasons. But there’s no error correcting for this process and so occasionally, you’ll want to reset the app back to what amounts to a factory default status, in order to get Push working again. The first time an app is opened, it will register for push notifications and prompt for receiving push notifications for the app. This prompt never occurs again unless the app is uninstalled for a minimum of a day and then reinstalled. You can duplicate this functionality by simply deleting the app and then installing the app again after setting the Date & Time manually a day ahead of the current date.

The term EMM refers to Enterprise Mobility Management, and refers to a Mobile Device Management tools that also support managing content. Currently, Bushel doesn’t attempt to manage content. This is because we find that most of our customers use a product like Dropbox or Box.com to manage content. And no matter how much time we sink (yes, bad pun intended) into attempting to duplicate their efforts, we’ll never manage content as well as they do, as it’s their primary business.
