Have a great idea that you’d like to see added to our service? Perhaps there’s an existing feature that you’d like to have extended or modified? Share it here!

  1. The ability to reorganize or customize the arrangement of the Profiles page

    The Profiles page becomes cluttered by all the different profiles inserted, it would be very helpful if there was an option to organize them in maps.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Will. We’re not planning to add geo-based rules at this point but I’ll leave this suggestion up to see if it rallies more support.

  6. Setup wireless to allow for open networks

    Within the wireless settings, put in an option to allow for connecting to open networks. Would be good for public wireless connections that may need to go thru an acceptance screen or a proxy filter to allow connection. Currently it is only feasible thru a profile manager .config file custom attribute import. Would be nice to have this directly available in wireless security options.

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  12. Persistent settings (group) on re-enroll of device

    We'd love to see devices automatically re-assign previous settings when the device is re-enrolled. Currently, if a device is in SimpleMDM and gets erased/wiped locally, the device will re-enroll and be placed in the "Default" group, most settings are lost (Except Device Name).

    It would be useful if a device that gets re-enrolled would automatically appear in the group it was previously in rather than the default group.

  13. more visuals and more data control

    ability to see what on the phone is using data and how much. Also the ability to see what the browsing history is on the phones. Ability to look at phone as if you had the phone in your hand and be able to change things thru this program and then see it change visually. Make the iPhone more visual thru mdm.

  14. 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.

    In SimpleMDM you can revoke vpp licenses. It would be great if this is possible via SimpleMDM API.

  20. Expose md5 and/or Other Checksum(s) of Enterprise Apps in Catalogue

    Once an app binary has been uploaded and deployed to devices via MDM it can be hard to find which particular build is actually deployed to the world.

    If you may happen to have binaries that share the same BundleID, CFBundleVersion, and CFBundleVersionShortString there is no way to tell which app is actually uploaded. If we could see an md5 checksum or sha1 or sha256 it wold be a nice and easy way to know with confidence which binary was uploaded.
