  1. Parameter Filters

    I really love how you can use parameters in many places. That said, it would be even better if we could have some simple "filters", or string functions, like many template languages have.

    E.g. I get the first and last name as custom parameters from the enrollment login. It would be great if I could set the username to something like {{first_name|lowercase}}

  2. End user editable Home Screen configurations

    Allow home screen configurations to be editable by end users.

    I love and want the ability to create a starting home screen configuration for my iPad/iPhone end users - but I absolutely hate that it's then locked so they cannot change it further after that.

    Also the iPads with iOS 13 have far more built in applications than what the Home Screen configuration shows, so a dozen apps just end up stuck in the second screen. Also please expand the limit of apps in a folder to more than 9, iOS does not have that small a limitation normally.

  3. Ability to disable the guest user

    It would be great if we could disable guest users on macOS for security reasons.

  4. make profile removal password protected without enrolling with DEP

    This was previously declined in 2018, here: https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/34296127-make-profile-removal-password-protected-without-en

    I suspect the answer was wrong then, but it is definitely wrong now, in December 2019, for macOS 10.15.2.

    I created a one-time enrollment, downloaded the mobileconfig, stripped the signature, added a RemovalPassword via Configurator (v2.11), and installed the profile. My device then connected to SimpleMDM and downloaded the rest of the config. This is presented in the 10.15.2 Profiles Pane UI as a set of distinct profiles (1 per profile configured in SimpleMDM). None of those "mini profiles" are removable but the top level one is. When removing it, it requires…

  5. App installation dependencies for macOS

    We have some installation dependencies for applications that we're deploying to macOS, but it doesn't appear possible to specify dependencies for Apps & Media within SimpleMDM. Because of that, we're unable to control the order that those packages are installed in. It would be nice to have the ability to mark certain app install bundles as dependent upon others.

  6. Support clearing safari cache

    We run websites on kiosk devices with locked down url profile. Would be great to support clearing the cache, or locking the browser to private browsing mode.

  7. Add API endpoint for setting default custom profile value

    Currently, the API only allows to set a custom profile value for a device, not a default value globally.

  8. Creating a simple browser app to allow you to run (lock you down to) only 1 website ..

    There are lots of businesses that only want staff to access a certain website, but due to Apple's limitations this is impossible.
    Suggestion is to create a browser app that can be programmed for only 1 (or more) specific websites. Then integrate it with your mdm for pushing the specific needed site(s)..

  9. Restrict access to devices based on tags

    Linked in some ways to this request https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/37168075-add-more-granular-simplemdm-user-roles… (and yes, please more granular permissions!)

    Would it be possible to restrict access to devices in MDM based on some kind of tagging?

    So I can tag devices as “Kiosk” and grant helpdesk full admin access over those devices, but they won’t be able to see or modify devices tagged “user laptop” for example.

    At the moment we achieve this using two separate SimpleMDM tenants, which works - but makes our plans to use auto-assignment of devices from Apple Business manager more challenging…

  10. Retrieve devices in a group via the API

    Currently I have to list all of the devices in the MDM, and filter after the fact. It would be great to be able to retrieve the devices in a particular group directly.

  11. Create MDM account before deploying InstallApplications payload

    When a machine enrolls into MDM via ABM/ASM the current cadence is to install packages before creating the configured account.

    This request is to make the account creation happen first so packages that install can use the account that is created by the MDM.

    One instance is the ability to install the bootstrap token escrow with the local admin account.

  13. Custom Attributes - Drop-down list with options

    We are using few Custom Attributes that can have only some options (like kiosk app). Having drop-down list with options will be really nice.

    Then it will allow us to set possible Attributes and help desk will just choice from drop-down list.

    Thanks David

  15. Okta Device Trust integration

    Okta have nice "Device trust" setting do you guys think it will be possible to cooperate with them and make this happen?

    https://help.okta.com/en/prod/Content/Topics/Mobile/OktaDeviceTrustJamfmacOS_Devices.htm

    It is easy for iOS/Windows but they need some API access to verify device in MDM.

    Thanks

  19. Add profile payload type "Directory"

    We need the ability to enrol macs into AD. This is done via the Directory payload, but I can't find a profile for it in Simple MDM. Before this is present, we can't switch to Simple MDM and is stuck with Apples Profile Manager.

  20. Allow custom URL for welcome screen

    It would be excellent to allow a custom URL for the "Welcome screen" contents, including providing drop-in HTML for a "start enrollment" button. This way, we could for example redirect to existing EULA agreement pages and pop the user right back to the SimpleMDM workflow.
