  1. update iOS (for DEP devices that support it) via the API

    Just looking at the API now, and it would be amazing if the ability to update iOS could be added to the API. I can envisage all kinds of scripted updates out of hours to make life easier for remote admins - for example scripting moving out of single app mode, updating the OS and moving back into Single App mode

  2. Button to force/request device details

    Add a button to request device details.

    Example: When adding/removing an app to/from devices, it takes up to an hour for the portal to reflect the changes. It would be nice to push a request for the data, especially when we don't have the luxury of waiting an hour.

  3. Save the last used sort order of the devices list.

    When checking the devices I often sort by something, like date last seen, then click on a device to view. When I return to the devices list I want to just click the next device, but the sort order has been reset.

    This was implemented a while ago but we seem to have missed marking it has complete.

  4. Allow a view device URL based on serial or device ID

    Watchman Monitoring is looking to build an integration for Macs which are enrolled in SimpleMDM.

    One thing we'd like to do is present a URL which lands at specific device. Currently this can be done with an internal SimpleMDM ID such as:

    https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/123456

    If URLs such as these existed, we could do that without the need for any API/account access

    https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/UNIQUEIDENTIFIER
    or
    https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/SERIALNUMBER

  5. Support Adding .pkg and .dmg without signing

    One of the nice things about Meraki’s SM is the way in which it handles the install of Apps vs SimpleMDM namely:
    - You dont need to sign a .pkg
    - You can upload a file or specify a URL as the source of the installer (.pkg or .dmg)

    Having to sign the .pkg is kinda annoying.

  6. let us download an uploaded IPA

    We recently had a case where we suspected that one of the app binaries that we uploaded wasn't the one we intended to release. We thought to download the IPA from SimpleMDM and do a hash check against the IPA we had locally, but wasn't able to find any way to download it from the SimpleMDM website.

  8. Add email account from configuration profile

    In our old (crappy) MDM solution the only thing that wasn't crappy was the ability to configure email accounts on a per device basis via pre-defined email configuration profiles. At the very moment in Simple MDM we have to fill out a couple of fields on the device->accounts->email page manually.

    Being able to chose from a list of pre-configured email account configuration profiles would be much smoother for us.

    Thanks for considering and hopefully implementing that feature!

    Email accounts can now be assigned at the device group level. If the username and password field values are unique for each device, they can be left blank so that the user is prompted for the values. If you would like to add them as an administrator, custom attributes can be used to create username and password values on a per-device basis.

  9. Force iOS Update

    Give the ability to Force a Device to Update to the latest version of iOS. Without a request sent to the Device. I need the ability to just force the update without asking for an approval from the Device holder. My Customers are not very smart.

    Please find a new “iOS Update Policy” option in Configs > Profiles.

  10. Printable Receipts

    A printable version of the billing history would be perfect. For now one needs to make screenshots of the billing history for accounting purposes.

  11. Allow updating of a custom profile

    Many times building a custom profile is iterative and sometimes needs to be changed.

    It would be great to be able to upload a new .mobileconfig that overwrites the existing profile and deploys the new profile to all devices immediately without having to un-assign and re-assing to groups.

  12. Provide a preview of custom config profiles

    It would be very helpful to be able to see the XML of the custom profiles that have been uploaded in the event that the profile naming itself is bad.

    That way I can know if the target profile is doing what I am expecting it to do or not.

  13. Show resolved Custom Attribute values if not currently overridden

    It would be great to be able to see the value a given device or group is inheriting from the default / group-defined value.

    For instance, if I have a globally defined passcode length of 4, and a group level passcode length of 6, then when I am viewing the attributes of a device in the aforementioned group, then I see "6" as the "prompt text" for the text field.

    This will allow me to know if I should define an override for this device/group or if the inherited value is what I want already without having to navigate away…

    Enrollment links can be configured to require LDAP or SAML authentication. Additionally, Enrollment links can be deleted to prevent future enrollments.

  15. allow in-app purchases to be disable via Device Restrictions

    Currently, in-app purchases can be disabled via the on-device Restrictions page. However, I do not see this as an option when configuring my Group Restrictions. Can this item be added to the available Restrictions?

    Thanks!

  16. Automatically Sync with Apple DEP

    Please add an option to allow "Sync with Apple" to happen without admin interaction. Ideally this would sync daily with Apple's deploy.apple.com service. In our environment we purchase from an authorized reseller so they automatically assign the serial numbers to our account and we would ideally like this to sync with SimpleMDM without admin interaction.

    DEP accounts are now automatically synced every three hours.

  17. Event to hook into when a new device enrolls (e.g: webhook)

    Would be nice if it's possible to hook into some event when a device
    gets enrolled. Since I'm not able to influence the polling I would like to
    know when a new device is actually enrolled so I have an up to date start.

  19. Multiple DEP

    Multiple DEP account / configurations.

    I have two classes of devices that we need to manage. One set is very locked down and supervised. The other we don't want to be supervised and just want some basic management. It's a bit painful right now to work around this and we'd love to be able to register sets of devices with different DEP accounts directly on Apple's site.

  20. Allow enforcing of Filevault with institutional recovery key.

    In Merakis MDM solution it is possible to enforce Filevault across your fleet using an institutional recovery key. Would really really like to see this feature come to SimpleMDM.

    SimpleMDM includes personal key support with escrow. We believe this is a more secure, superior strategy to using a global institutional recovery key.

    We hope that this will fit your requirements. If it does not, we welcome your feedback on this request.
