Disabling and enabling automatic updates for Standardized Testing

School Manager has a special mode that stops Linewize Connect and your Linewize appliance from automatically updating. This mode is intended for those critical time periods, like exam week or standardized testing, where you don’t want to deploy updates to student devices or update your school’s filtering appliance.


Disabling or enabling automatic updates will affect your device (appliance) and laptop Connect agents.

Disabling and enabling automatic updates 


Only disable automatic updates for the duration of the standardized testing period, or you may miss critical updates.

  1. In School Manager, go to Debugging > Device Updates.
  2. Uncheck the Enabled checkbox.
  3. Select Save.
  4. Once your testing period ends, go to Debugging > Device Updates.
  5. Check the Enabled checkbox.
  6. Select Save.
