MiWorkspace: Install Software/Manage Updates (Mac)

Managed Software Center will automatically launch weekly in order to provide available updates. You may also launch Managed Software Center to install new software or to manually check for updates at any time.

Note It is recommended that you connect your computer to a power supply and maintain a connection to the same network for the duration of each installation/update.

System Preferences for Managed Software Center

To customize when update prompts appear and how often prompts are repeated:

  1. Navigate to Apple menu > System Preferences.
  2. Click the MiWorkspace icon.
  3. The Miworkspace Preferences pane will appear, and you have the option to change settings on two items:
    • Days between identical update prompts - The default for reminder prompts is one day. If desired, you can increase this number up to three business days.
    • Notify me of updates - By default, updates may appear at any time during the day. If you wish to only receive new and reminder prompts outside of business hours, click the Outside business hours (5 PM to 8 AM) radio button.

      Note This change only applies to MiWorkspace update prompts (Managed Software Center). It does not change some third-party and App Store prompts.
