  1. create a way to connect to a file server on native file iOS app

    Need a way to add an smb server connection automatically. I would like to use the native files ios app. I am not seeing this as possible currently as the app is not custom configurable like apps that are purchased. Would be useful in connections to local server that are not cloud based yet but are connectable over vpn with remote work going on now.

  2. Add tooltip on serialnumber link in logs for device name

    A tooltip showing the device name would be helpful when reviewing logs to determine the device without having to click forward

  3. show log history of app activity on device

    This is a feature built into apple settings and should be pullable on an mdm solution. So we can report back activity to managers and know which apps are getting used that we deploy. Especially important with an increasingly large remote workforce.

  4. search devices by custom attributes or notes field information

    I would like to look up who is using the iPad. We have generally put the name in the notes field and are looking into doing a custom attribute. Neither are searchable in the current device algorithm. Can we please get something for that added?

  5. Restrict roles to specific device groups

    As we grow in the number of devices we have a need to delegate device actions for specific groups. Can we have an option to restrict a specific role to one (or more groups)?

    This would allow department heads to manage their own devices but not manage the devices of middle management or higher.

  7. ability to see per-device logs via the API

    Right now you can query the logs via the API. Which is great! :) BUT - you have to pull ALL log events and then parse through them.

    I'd love the ability to pull the logs for a specific device via the API - which is clearly something you can do in the WebUI via filters and voodoo.

    My end goal is being able to query if a lock.enabled command is in the logs, so I can confirm a device has received a remote lock command.

    But I'm sure being able to query individual device logs for other entries would…

  8. Send an email to the admin when Apps are automatically updated.

    We are switching from VM Ware and the admins are emailed anytime a new version of an VPP App is updated. It's very useful if there is a glitch and the new version app is the cause. Just handy to know the update went out.

  10. Search option in DEP Info of Automated Enrollment group for device list

    Can we get a search field like we have in the Devices list but in the Devices > Enrollments > [enrollment name] > DEP Info > DEP Devices? Right now it is a static list and can only show 20, 50, 1000, or all devices. With over 2000 devices in the list it would be handy to be able to search by Serial Number to determine if the machine is in the list or not. Selecting the “all” option takes a fair amount of time to list all the devices when all I want to know is if the machine…

  12. Dropdown Menu or Arrows for Efficient Scrolling Through Device List

    Very minor request. But it would be nice to have a drop-down menu or up and down arrows when on the device detail page so you may easily scroll through your device list—just as on the device group detail page.

  13. Allow different Device Naming settings per Enrolment group

    Currently we are able to name our device on enrolment which is great, however we cant have a different naming convention per enrolment group. We would like to be able to name the devices differently for each enrolment group.

  14. Make macOS DEP-installed Administrator more configurable

    First priority: the administrator account should be optional. I install my admin account via a signed package, and go out of my way to disable the simplemdm-created account.

    If that's not possible, at least allow me to set the UID of the user to something <500 so it's more invisible to users.

  17. Show Device Lock status via webUI and API

    So - similar to JP's suggestion... https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/36523045-show-a-list-of-locked-devices

    BUT - at the moment a device can have one of three statuses returned via the API

    enrolled
    enrolling
    *unenrolled

    Could you also add

    Lock Command sent
    Lock command received

    (or similar) as a status. We're in a position where we want to prevent multiple device admins sending lock commands to the same lost device. Yes you can check the logs first, but are folk really going to do that?

    We also want to build a lock functionality via the API - and want to be able to check if a lock command…

  18. Allow sorting/filtering on the Device Details > Apps page

    It would be very helpful to be able to sort the Apps list on Device details by discovered date. Additionally, it would be helpful to have a filter field to isolate a batch of apps that match the criteria.

  19. Employee Roster

    Relatively minor request: an employee roster who you could "assign" devices to. This could be a sortable column on the device list and would prevent you from having to including the employee name in the device name or notes. The only alternative I can think of is to create a device group for each employee and assign the devices accordingly. But this would be grossly inefficient.

  20. Add Office 365 as an account provider

    In Device>Accounts>Add account Google is an option. It would be fantastic if Office 365 was an option as well. I'd love a streamlined way to deploy Office 365 credentials to apps such as Outlook, Excel, and Word at the same time, especially on iOS where users may not be familiar with app passwords.
