  1. Show all apps on all devices, enriched with metadata & approval-management

    Currently I can see a list of all installed apps for one device at a time. I would love to have an overview of ALL the apps across ALL managed devices.
    My use case: We allow users to install apps themselves, but they need to be approved. I would like to see all apps, filter out the system apps (like "AirDrop"), and then see which apps are only on a single/a few devices.

    Additionally:
    * I want to see if an app is notarized/from the App Store, since any malware app can just call itself "Calendar.app".
    * I want…

  2. Improve Device Search with More Attributes

    Currently device search only supports device name, serial number, IMEI, MAC, and phone number.

    Scenarios where search doesn't return the results I need:
    - When I need to search by a custom attribute. For example, say I want to return all devices where the username attribute is "nathaniel.strauss". I am unable to since those attributes are not exposed in search. This is a common ask - "How many devices does x have?" The same holds true for any custom attribute set from SAML assertion - team, department, etc.
    - When the device name (SimpleMDM defined) doesn't match the Device Name…

  3. Support for Munki installer_type "nopkg"

    Munki has a pkginfo key for the installer type "nopkg". In a self-hosted Munki environment, this allows pkginfo files to be added to a repository that do not have an associated .pkg or .dmg file. You can read the Munki Project docs on the feature here: https://github.com/munki/munki/wiki/nopkgs

    This has a variety of uses, because it allows Munki to be used as a general script execution tool. An admin can use any of Munki's installation conditions (package receipt, installs array, installcheck_script, or OnDemand) to then run a pre or postinstall script embedded in the pkginfo.

    One example of how this is…

  4. Enforce matching name and device_name fields

    Note: Due to formatting, not including the _ underscore in device name. Everything was italics.

    SimpleMDM has two name values for each device - "name" and "device name". "name" is the value used in the device list (https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices) and the header of a device record. "device name" is the actual hostname set locally. If the hostname changes on device, it will change in SimpleMDM on next inventory refresh. Similarly, "device name" can be edited manually in SimpleMDM and a MDM command will be issued to update it on device.

    What if "device name" changes at any point…

  5. Add Device Group to the standard attributes

    Adding the devices group to the standard attributes would make it much easier to customize profiles based on the group of the device. This is somewhat possible to do currently with a default value on a custom attribute, but a standard attribute would be preferred.

  6. Add column sorting to all columns across SimpleMDM

    For example, under Devices > Enrollments > [MDM Server] > DEP Info, none of the columns (S/N, Model, Color, Last DEP Check-In, Linked Device, Status) can be sorted.

    Another example is Config > Profiles. Only the "Type" column can be sorted, but none of the other columns.

    I realize we can search and filter on these same pages, but it would be helpful to have sort options as well.

  7. Assign profiles to multiple groups from the Profiles Action menu

    There's no easy way to assign a single profile to multiple groups at once. Instead, I have to go to the Groups view and click on each group I want to add the profile to, click the profile tab, click Assign Profile, find the Profile I want to add, then click the Assign button. Doing that for each group is tedious.

    Instead, I suggest the Profiles view have an option in the Action button to be able to add whichever Profiles are selected to add to Groups. I imagine the resulting view would be a list of groups with a…

  8. Support custom attributes for boolean values in profiles

    I would like to create a custom configuration profile that uses an attribute to populate a boolean field, like so:

    <key>allowCloudDocumentSync</key>
    <{{setting_allowCloudDocumentSync}}/>

    In this case, the default value of the attribute would be "false", but I would be able to override that with "true" at the group or device level.

    Currently, since the above is not valid Plist syntax SimpleMDM will reject the profile during upload or pasting into the console.

  9. Store more information for deleted devices

    Deleted devices have very little paper trail to them shown in the web console. If we have the ability to store the custom attributes, notes and who deleted the device with the deleted devices, that would be a huge help in understanding why a specific machine was deleted without searching through other sources.

  10. allow user roles who (only) see their own device

    The idea here is to make our employees trust in the MDM solution. I'd like to give them read-only-access to SimpleMDM to see
    1) what is configured
    2) what I can see about their device
    3) what is NOT possible (I frequently get the question "can you read my e-mail now?")

    Currently, the lowest level of access still allows to see ALL settings, accounts and apps installed on ANY device.

    Being able to restrict the app-listing (similar to the settings in "Allow secret information visibility") would be a helpful feature.

    Even better would be linking the SAML-identity from the Enrollment…

  12. Include copy button for admin password.

    With the escrowed admin password feature, it would be helpful to include a small copy button (similar to those seen on code training/doc sites) to easily copy the password.

    As it is now, if you reveal the password, then triple click to select, you end up grabbing a carriage return (and text styling) that will make the password invalid when pasted.

  13. SimpleMDM Training and Certification

    Why do I ask/suggest?
    - It can be great to meet MDM certification requirements from the Apple Consultants Network (for members).
    - Learn SimpleMDM from the perspective of the creators. Like best practises, how/why things were created the way they are.
    - Impress whoever is impressed by this kind of stuff. Maybe you'll get a raise. And off course get a nice badge for your website or social media! (just kidding)
    - (add your suggestions in a reply)

  14. Collect RAM inventory data

    Hello,

    We would like to see the amount of RAM a computer has from within SMDM, within each device inventory and on the Device tab as an extra column.

    Our team is looking to refresh hardware, and RAM is the main criteria, but we are unable to gather this data, and everymac.com information is not accurate.

    Note that this feature request is separate from the "report on mac model, installed ram and cpu type," because we are not looking to access the data via API.

  15. Add Request Management to the App Installs Page under Actions button

    If you need to request management for an app that has been user installed on devices you currently have to manually go to every single device individually and request management for the app in order to delete/update etc.

    I am requesting to add a request management button under the "Actions" button on the App Installs page for the specific app you select. This way you can "Select All" on that page for all devices that have the app installed and directly request management of that app all at once. This would save a HUGE amount of time for large deployments…

  16. Add a Log tab to the device detail view

    When viewing the Device Details, having a Log tab to have just the log entires for that device readily available would be great. Currently I have to copy the SN, click on the Logs view, paste the serial number and then if I want more device details I have to go back to the device detail.

    Having a log view of just that devices activity in the device detail would keep all the device details in one location.

  18. I'd love to see tags implemented as a device organizational tool.

    Right now we have groups. But device groups is only one way to view your fleet. I'd love if I could also assign tags to devices. Ideally multiple tags. This way I could have tags for things like "remote" or "customer service" or "need2retire". Then I could use a tag or combination of tags to isolate a special group of devices.

    Thanks

  20. Support "Non-Removable" flag on deployed iOS Store Apps

    As noted here on the SimpleMDM blog, an option was added to iOS starting in 14.x where individual apps can be marked as "non-removable" by the administrator when being deployed.

    https://simplemdm.com/blog/mdm-ios-14-macos-11-big-sur/
    https://it-training.apple.com/tutorials/deployment/dm195

    "To prevent a user from uninstalling a managed app, mark the app as nonremovable when you assign the managed app to a user or device. Depending on your MDM solution, you might need to deselect a Removable attribute or set a nonremovable attribute. With your MDM solution, you may also be able to set this attribute on apps that are already installed on a device."

    I feel it…
