  2. Admin lockout of map path tracking

    It's really cool from an admin perspective that you keep a history of a device's location. From a user perspective, that's really creepy, and we do not want that functionality.

    Best outcome would be to not store this data at all. However, even if the information is still stored somewhere in a database, can we please have the option to turn off the display of location history on a map?

    This is a critical security concern.

  3. Lost Mode pending status

    We've set Lost Mode for a device. The banner that indicates this doesn't persist. We'd like to see the pending request for Lost Mode persist in the dashboard/status view for the device.

  5. 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.

  6. I would like to request SMTP support, with authentication.

    I would like to request SMTP support, with authentication. It would be nice to get emailed when critical events happen within SimpleMDM’s management interface. Examples, when a certificate is about to expire, or when a device is quarantined.

  7. Support self-enrollment using directory service credentials

    Provide for directory service (AD et al) user authentication information to be used for self-enrollment of devices. The authenticated user information should also be written to the device record so we know that user is tied to the enrolled device.

  8. Move VPP settings from Apps to Settings section

    Howdy,

    I think VPP settings make more sense to have under "Settings" instead of "Apps."

    That's all! Thanks!

  9. Support network users

    MDM protocol has an extension called "Network User Authentication" allowing MDM to manage network users in corporate or educational environment.

    This is linked to what is sometime called shared devices or lab devices.

    Main idea is to be able to target settings to users and not devices directly.

    This mean users are provided by a central directory service (at this time it's LDAP like AD, OD or even custom LDAP, but don't forget that macOS might support something else too).

    So MDM need to be able to sync with any kind of directory services and receive "UserAuthenticate" messages from managed…

  11. Slack integration

    I would really like Slack intergration
    I.e a notification when there is a change like a new machine enrolls or something more advanced like a notification when a new machine enroll have an interative button (https://api.slack.com/docs/message-buttons), to confirm that the machine is allowed to enroll and move it to the right group.

  12. No app deletion upon unenrollment

    Make it so that when the mdm profile is removed or unenrolled by an administrator, then the apps will not be deleted and remain on the device. VPP apps would be removed and the licenses taken back.

  13. Completely lock the device

    I'd like the ability to prevent someone using a device for a period. This could be combination of a device lock, along with a passcode change, or some "auto" way to push a device into single app mode with the SimpleMDM app as the only one, with a basic "device is locked until xx" message.

    This is just a situation where you want to prevent device use until you re-allow it or a way to stop the device being used for anything until a certain time.

    If you could do this as a feature, this would be huge with the…

  15. Cloud Sandbox for iOS Apps

    Online sandbox for iOS apps. I want a portal where I can log in and see all app interactions on a designated Apple device. Did someone send my son a friend request via Facebook? Or send him a SMS? Or what sites did he visit? I want to monitor everything about that device. I want alerts for certain pre-defined actions on his part.

  16. Add Documents

    Apple Configurator 2 when adding documents it picks up what apps are installed and you are able to add documents to that particular app.

    In my case, we are using Filemaker Go and we have manuals to go into the app. Having the ability to upload manuals straight to said app via the MDM would be AMAZING!!

  18. find a way to automatically shutdown all devices of a given group (scheduled time, manual action from SimpleMDM website, network signal...)

    For kiosk/museal applications, it is a key feature to have the devices shut down automatically every night when store/museum closes. And ideally to have them start up automatically in the morning - whereas this can be achieved by restoring the power...

    While everything I've read about this says it's not perfect, something would be better than nothing. Thanks.

  20. Device audit screen? Find duplicates, sort by last seen?

    Would love to see an administrative screen that accomplishes a few things:


    1. Lets us quickly identify duplicate entries, e.g. If a device was enrolled, then reset, then enrolled again (deduplicate by serial number) so we can cleanup.


    2. Identify devices that may have gone missing or devices that have been offline for a suspicious amount of time (combination of last-seen and location change data visible at a glance)


    Our use case is we want to conduct, e.g. Weekly device audits, and right now going through the listing manually is a pain.
