Buggy user experience
As someone on the user side of this service, my experience has been frustrating… Lots of bugs when installing approved apps (requiring reboots, reinstalls, and at one point a full reset of the phone), newly added apps by our admins not showing up for days or ever, and inability to install approved apps and error messages that don’t lead towards a resolution with admins. I don’t know what this tool looks like from the admin side of things, but the experience from the user side has been frustrating.

Making Admins Life Easy.
I am not sure why some reviews are poor or there isn’t more 5 stars on this app. This app is used together with Jamf Pro. For those that don’t know this makes giving your users the access to install apps without them having to use their personal Apple IDs. You can also assign purchased apps and this will avoid your org losing money by having people buy their own apps and then reimbursing them but you will never have a license for the app if that employee leaves in the future. Together with Apple Business Manager or School Manager together with Apps and Books (formerly VPP) this has helped tremendously. Having users with iPads in my org all across the US asking me for an app and being able to give them access so easily and cleanly is priceless. JAMF FOR LIFE!!!

Bringing the Launcher to Mac
Our user base is a very unique set of users. They prefer things to “just happen” by magic. For us, Applications are best scoped directly to devices, however we were able to leverage the power of Bookmarks in Self Service for creating a one-stop shop for all the web shortcuts to mimic the application that we use on our Windows computers. Mac users now have easy access to all those daily use items that they were accustomed to finding all in one place. This makes it easier for everyone to get to where they need to.

Self Service
Chances are if you are reading this review you are interested in utilizing jamf or you have no idea why this application is on your device. No worries. Think of jamf self service as your organizations internal App Store. If your organization provided you with an iOS device or you opted in to use your companies mobile device management (MDM) for email on your personal device this application would be pushed out. If your organization is looking to make access to applications easier without the use of an Apple ID talk to jamf about their solutions.

Jamf Self Service is great...
...if you have any idea what it is! It’s a shame a bunch of folks download this and assume it just doesn’t work, when the reality is it’s a professional tool that only works in conjunction with Jamf Pro. In that context it’s incredibly useful to be able to standardize and manage the deployment of apps to organizationally-owned devices (or to users who approve on personal devices). IT Admins: Please tell your users what this is if you’re going to enroll their devices and push the installation! It pains me to read how many folks think Self Service is malicious.

The application sign up process is complicated
JAMF takes time and doesn't manage the server well At the same time, the security of the mobile device management part runs by JAMF makes me think, any student can just go and exploit and escape the MDM profile, it's not yet fixed on iOS 11, but here I am, a student with a unmanageable iPad typing here inside the "restricted" AppStore... Any student can bypass and take it home, that's my point.

Wonderful App
Self Service has really empowered our school district or enable our student and teacher to install the apps that they need and want for their classes. Self Service gives up the option to provide grade appropriate apps to each grade level K-12. We can even organize which apps are featured and have a higher importance for our end users. Huge asset for our district.

A must have in your mobile environment
JSS is simply a must have for anyone managing a mobile environment. Allowing the users to perform functions at their convenience eliminates a log of the administrative guess-work that goes along with remote administering. Being able to send messages to our entire fleet of devices at once is also a plus! Jamf is simply the leader in MDM for Apple devices.

Jamf is the best!!!
Self Service is a great way to get apps deployed out to your Apple devices in your environment. I am an Apple Systems Specialist at a college and can vouch that Jamf is the real deal. If you want to manage your clients and do it with real power, use Jamf. You’ll give your users the great ability to use Self Service and get customized content that YOU host. It simply works and is easy for users to use. Once you go with Jamf, you won’t go back.

Perfect App Catalog for macOS
I use this application in conjunction with Jamf Pro. In an ever exhaustive effort to bring the Apple environment up to the same level as the Windows environment, the Self Service app does just that. This application works just like other app catalog platforms but just does everything better. I highly recommend this one to anyone using Apple and Jamf Pro.

Necessary for any MDM environment
Self Service is the in-house app catalogue that pairs with the Jamf-Pro platform. This app makes device management a dream in any environment. Easily control which users in your organization have access to specific apps. If you issue iPads or Macs to your users, Self Service is an app that you are going to want to utilize.

Jamf self service can be elegantly branded for your organization while also being extremely user friendly. The app updates quickly and apps can be found easily using the interface. What ever is needed to provide your organization, documents, web links, tools, can be done and will be done efficiently.

Time saver
This has proven to be a critical tool in my infrastructure. It allows for group separation with all departments. My customers love the ease of installing additional apps that are not on their base build and allows me to manage those while reporting who has installed what. The login functionality seems a bit buggy but could also be an issue in my setup. Will add an additional star once confirmed.

Has been a real time saver!
We got Jamf and self service in February, those tasks that took us hours now takes us mere minutes. Those staff who do not want to use their personal Apple ID for work, we have an option now to get the app and push it directly to their phone. It has been such a help! I cannot even describe!

Easy for Orgs to make apps available for their users
A great way for Organizations to make apps available to their users in a customized App Store. Greatly reduces confusion when asking users to install an app. If your Org uses a specific 2FA app, you can feature it on the main screen! Highlights Apps, web shortcuts, digital content and more.

Companies personal App Store
Self Service is your companies personal App Store. Your administrators can populate it with all the apps that you may need for work, so you can find the few apps you need for your job instead of having to hunt through the thousands of apps in Apples App Store.

Customer install apps on their time
Using Self Service I can make apps available for my customers and have them install at their convenient time. This helps with lean initial device deployments. User clicks on the app, done. It’s like the App Store but you control who gets what.

It works for me
Jamf integration for app version control and patching is great. Highly dependent on your server admin (for some of the negative reviews out there) but so long as your admin has their distro point in order you won't find a better end user interface. Jamfuser

Poor User Interface
Everything is just a list. Fonts, profiles ( like VPN or Wi-Fi) just all appear in one long list. There should be categories at the bottom for organization. The UI also renders poorly on iOS 14. The three dots at the top left when open get get covered by the “back to previous app” feature in iOS. Major improvements required.
