  1. 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.

  4. 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

  5. Return the "Marketing/Human Readable" name for a Mac via the API

    At the moment SimpleMDM can return a model name and a product name via the API.

    However, the product names aren't unique - Apple occasionally reuse them... would it be possible for SimpleMDM to return the "Human Readable" name as well i.e. "MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)" rather than just MacBookPro13,2

    We'd like to use SimpleMDM to populate our asset management system via the API - and would prefer to use the Human Readable name

    There are examples of how to do this here: http://scriptingosx.com/2017/11/get-the-marketing-name-for-a-mac/ and here https://github.com/MagerValp/MacModelShelf

  6. 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}}

  7. Creating Subgroups

    Within my school structure I have groups created by grade. I would like to be able to create subgroups for foreign language, honors vs standard, etc. so that i can push paid apps to only a small segment of a group, and to be able to put devices into multiple subgroups.

  8. 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?

  9. 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)..

  11. Add setting for a profiles level in the web UI

    Currently profiles like password and screensaver settings are set by SimpleMDM as user-level profiles in macos. With MDM that means only 1 user will have that profile enforced. However, your organization might be obligated to enforce that policy for all users organization wide. It is common for a Mac in a corporate fleet to have at least 2 users. If MDM makes it so user-level profiles are only pushed to 1 of the users, you're not in compliance.

    If it's possible for a profile to be device-level, we should be able to set it as such in the web interface.…

  12. add a self-service portal that can be used to host links to apps that are non-VPP

    We need students to be able pick from a list of suggested apps via a self-service app or page. These are not VPP apps, rather they are apps that students will purchase personally.

  13. Along with listing the apps to add in a build, please show if it is an IOS or Mac OS app.

    In the drop-down list of apps to add to a build it would be nice to see if it is an IOS or OS app rather than having to add it and see in the list if it is one or the other.

  16. Make the delete all / wipe configuration optional

    As we are simply using simplemdm to manage apps for contractors / on personal computers it is overkill to have the permission to wipe a computer from the portal.

    If possible it would be nice to make the wipe setting optional when enrolling a device.

  17. 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.
