Most Agents will auto-update without any action needed from an account Admin. However, under some circumstances, a manual update may be necessary. Please ensure you have the Weekly Digest enabled to receive timely notifications about Agent updates.

To check which Agent version is installed on devices, navigate to Settings > Users and Groups > Computer Agents.

NOTE: With each new Agent release, the ActivTrak Agent is optimized to ensure the best experience for ActivTrak customers. Because of this, we require that Agents are up-to-date before troubleshooting steps can be taken to resolve any Agent issues.

Please reach out to ActivTrak Support with any questions you may have.
