  1. Enrollment Setting - Unassign Profiles at Re-Enrollment

    We heavily utilize individually assigned profiles for Macs. There are also a few default profiles assigned via group. When a new out-of-box Mac is being enrolled for the first time only those default profiles are installed (around 5). Profiles are installed quickly and reliably. Later on during provisioning our configuration management tool handles installing other required per device profiles.

    However, when a Mac from stock is being re-enrolled to be used by another person, every previously assigned profile is installed at setup assistant. Since in my case those individually assigned profiles are usually per user, team, department, etc. and no…

  3. API endpoint to request an updated location

    We would like to use the API to do automatic location audits, however the location is often not as up to date as we would like. An API endpoint that mirrors the "update" button on the device map would be very helpful!

  4. Disable iOS power button

    Allow the iPhone power button to be disabled so that the device can't be powered down if lost or stolen.
    I'm aware that for now, this functionality is only available in jailbroken devices running Cydia tweaks, but it would be an awesome enhancement to have in the future.

  5. Implement a self enrolment portal for end users

    I would like to be able to get users to simply enrol in SimpleMDM through a URL, similar to JAMFnow enrolment portal.

    This is a very simple way to boost enrolment on user side and allows administrators to easily enrol devices on the go. No longer remembering long enrolment URLs.

    JAMFnow workflow
    User goes to company.jamfnow.com
    User is provided with dropdown list of available groups to enrol in
    User is prompted for first name and last name
    User is asked to enter a passcode (set by admin)
    User clicks enrol and is now provided with relevant profile

    Must have features:…

  6. import a CSV containing device information for enrollment

    We would like to see the ability to upload a CSV exported from our previous mobile device manager to send mass text messages with a group enrollment link.
    Use Case: We currently have about 400 devices in the field that need to be remotely enrolled.
    This is low priority, we will use the QR code to enroll all of the devices just fine. This is just an improvement suggestion for the future.

  7. Provide the same information about MacBook that I see on the "Overview" tab of the "About This Mac".

    At the moment there is only
    - Serial Number
    - OS Version
    - Storage Capacity.

    I would like to have also:
    - MacBook (Size, year, version)
    - Processor

  8. Allow Webclips to be named differently than the profile name

  9. 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.

  10. Allow installing iOS apps (.ipa) on Macs with Apple Silicon

    Macs with an Apple Silicon processor support running iPadOS apps. This could be nice to allow installing such apps via SimpleMDM.

  11. Add an ability to deliver any type of file to the device

    I have been writing scripts that export files (company logos, custom apps without signatures, etc) from base64 encoded strings and while it works it is tedious to do.

    It would be nice to have a form on the admin portal where we can upload a file or set of files (of any type) and specify the file path where we would like those files to be deployed on the managed device.

    The Add Media function already has pdf and epub covered here, but this would dramatically expand the delivery capabilities of the MDM.

  13. Specify package install order on joining an app assignment group

    I can see that this request has been marked completed:

    https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/44830375-specify-package-install-order-during-prestage

    and I've tested the package order stuff in our environment - and it works really well... but ONLY for pre-stage setups. And they don't always work.

    So - if an end user needs to manually enrol a device either via an enrolment link or a sudo profiles -N command to re-trigger an automated enrolment then all that awesome install logic disappears, and the packages get installed in what seems to be a random order. As Eric says in that feature request:

    "Some vendors supply their products as multiple packages…

  14. Collect RAM inventory data

    Hello,

    We would like to see the amount of RAM a computer has from within SMDM, within each device inventory and on the Device tab as an extra column.

    Our team is looking to refresh hardware, and RAM is the main criteria, but we are unable to gather this data, and everymac.com information is not accurate.

    Note that this feature request is separate from the "report on mac model, installed ram and cpu type," because we are not looking to access the data via API.

  16. Control Webhook data

    Webhooks are very limited in what they provide without triggering another API call to pull in more information. The ability to control the payload within the webhook endpoint creation screen would be a huge help in interfacing with other programs. The ability to add static data to the payload (like we can already do to the header) or be able to add dynamic data through attribute support.

  17. Include "less than macOS version" and "greater than macOS version" for profile scoping

    It would be very helpful to be able to define "less than" and "greater than" macOS version when scoping profiles. For example, I would prefer to specify "less than macOS 12" for a profile to apply to all versions of macOS 11. As it is, I have to update the maximum OS version every time a new dot release comes out.

  18. Include a 'Devices' (or 'Assigned Devices') tab on a device group page

    When inspecting a device group, it would be very helpful and handy to have a tab to inspect/manage the devices associated with that group.
    Currently you have to go back to the Groups page, find the desired group, and then click on the number in the Assigned Devices column to look at the devices in that group and perform any management activities on them.

  20. Make the IMAP Path Prefix option available

    When creating accounts on devices for IMAP Mail servers, we need to set the IMAP Path Prefix so the folders behave properly.

    With SimpleMDM we currently can't set that, but we can with .mobileconfig Plist files.
