Optional Softwareget help

To accommodate requests for commonly used software, IT Services publishes a list of self-serve optional software titles.

To access the optional titles, your Mac must first have all regular 3rd-party and Apple software updates.


1. Begin by launching /Applications/Managed Software Center.app. 


2. Allow Managed Software Center to run. If it finds any outstanding updates, you must install these before accessing any of the Optional Installs. 

3. Once all outstanding updates have been applied, you will be presented with the opportunity to install other titles. Click the grey "Install" chiclet to request the additional software title.

4. To request additional software not readily available to you or your department, please email the helpdesk: mac-help@sfu.ca
