  1. Include Custom Attributes in export

    With custom attributes I now have a place for my asset tags and assigned to values, but these values are not exportable. Even the API makes it very hard to retrieve these fields.

  2. lost mode via API

    I would like to be able to enable lost mode via API.

    Better, would be the ability to configure a given time since a device has last reported its location… or last checked in, and allow either lost mode or lock to be enabled by MDM itself.

  3. Allow deploying of files/books to iBooks

    Allow deploying of files/books to iBooks. We would like to post and push some internal documentation into iBooks. This would be very helpful for our engineering staff who are out in the field so that they they do not need to carry service manuals with them.

  4. Hide API key until a 'reveal' button is pressed on the Settings > API page

    https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/api

    As noted on the page itself, 'Note: Take care to protect your account key. It is just as powerful as your username and password.'

    It would be nice if the key was hidden on view when you visit the page and instead there was a button near it that reveals the key temporarily. Would help prevent accidentally showing API key and looks better in demos.

    Thanks in advance!

  5. Managed App Configurations by Device Group

    It would be a great advantage to be able to apply a slightly different device configuration based on the Device Group. In the case of multiple iPad Kiosks that simply load a website, The Device Groups each require a unique home page set in KioskPro Plus.

    Let me know if I'm missing some part of the interface that provides this.

    Thanks.

    VPN 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.

  7. Alerts for MDM unenrollment

    Customers need email alerts for the unenrollment of devices. Since Apple does not allow for the prevention of removal of MDM profiles, users can unenroll devices at will. The only way an administrator can know this without being logged into the portal one hundred percent of the time would be a proactive alerting infrastructure. Ideally, this would include multiple alert options including email, SMS and push notification to an admin device.

  8. tvOS - Managed OS Updates

    With tvOS 12 adding support for managed OS updates (https://simplemdm.com/2018/06/15/apple-mdm-features-ios-12-macos-10-14/), it would be great if the Install Update icon method could be implemented for tvOS devices (like it currently is for iOS devices in the Device Details page)

  9. allow for disabling notifications in iOS and controlling privacy System Services in MDM

    I know Apple has some limitations on this but it would be good to be able to disable notifications on the screen from SimpleMDM. Also the ability to control the Privacy > System Services screen options thru a boolean on and off config like those available in a custom app configuration. Since this is an iOS control I am not sure if there is a string that can be added to allow for this under privacy controls or not. Thanks for your consideration.

  10. Allow filtering based on MAC address in the Devices API

    Currently only name, UDID, serial number and phone number are supported for filtering in the Devices API. In the context of a network, the MAC address is the only identifier available and is required for filtering.

  11. Search devices by MAC Address

    Currently the only way to search for a device in your MDM is by device name, serial or phone number. Adding the ability to search by MAC Address of the device helps advanced organizations search more thoroughly if a search inquiry doesn't contain the MDM's current search parameters.

  12. add the option to push Wifi Profiles as Device Profile

    This would be great for non-user-enrolled MDM Deployments.

    Generally speaking it would be great if all payloads that work as Device Profile would have a Checkbox to do so (and maybe even default to the device channel)

  13. tvOS 12 Home Screen Layout

    THRILLED about this new feature in the tvOS 12 release that came out earlier this week:
    "tvOS will add support for restrictions and configurations currently found in iOS. Specifically:

    Home screen layouts"

    Chomping at the bit for you to implement!

  15. Allow Download of Custom Profiles

    It would be great to have the option of downloading previously uploaded mobileconfig files (or even better, edit them in the webinterface).

    Normally i prototype profiles in Profile Manager, but since i cannot put every bit of information that is contained in the Profile into it's name, i have no possibility of checking what exactly i am deploying.

    A download Option would make troubleshooting/debugging Custom Profiles a lot easier!

    Thanks in advance.

  16. Display lastSeen on the device page

    Right now it's only shown on the device list page but not on the page for a specific device.
    Additionally, it would be nice to put the true timestamp in the alt field so that you can see the exact time on hover.

    As many businesses are limited to which day(s) of the week upgrades can be performed, adding more versatility to the scheduling would be very helpful.

  20. Add authentication to enrollment

    In evaluating other MDM services, I've found that enrollment that requires some kind of end-user authentication automatically satisfies the User Approval portion of MDM enrollment when initiated using DEP.

    This is, of course, in addition to the security concerns of anybody with a DEP-included serial being able to enroll without authentication.

    SimpleMDM currently supports LDAP authentication during DEP enrollment. Starting with iOS 13 and macOS 10.15, SAML authentication is also supported during DEP enrollment.
