  2. Add custom UID option to macOS account creation on enrollment

    The option to skip Setup Assistant's prompt to create a user and create an admin provided account on enrollment is useful.

    I'd like to see, if possible, the option to specify the UID of the account that gets created. We have environment specific needs for a specific UID for the account that isn't 501.

    Unfortunately Apple's MDM spec does not currently provide us the ability to specify the UID of the account that gets created during Automated Enrollment (DEP) / Setup Assistant.


    I will close this request for now, but we will continue to monitor Apple updates in case this option is added to the MDM spec at some point.

    As explained by Matt Vlasach, this feature is currently technically not possible with Apple iOS.

  5. Add the Zoom IT Admin App to the catalog.

    In order to block certain login options you have to use the Zoom IT Admin application. I will add the link to the .pkg below. We would like this to be added to the catalog so that it is updated regularly.

    https://zoom.us/download

    Then click the drop down for Download for IT Admin

    As far as I am aware, the Zoom IT Admin application no longer exists as it once did. If there is another app you'd like to see added from Zoom, please submit a new suggestion. Thanks!

  7. make profile removal password protected without enrolling with DEP.

    make profile removal password protected without enrolling with DEP.
    Add the ability to never allow the user to remove the profile from their device.
    now the option is only available if you enroll in Apples DEP.
    would prefer having the option without enrollment.

    Apple does not allow password-protected MDM profiles. DEP enrollment is the only current method of setting an MDM profile as unremovable.

    This is available already using the Web Clip profile. Per Apple's design, bookmarks can be added only to Safari via MDM when using a Web Content Filter profile.

  11. Allow quarantine of devices that have older version of an app installed

    The Quarantine feature has been deprecated (though accounts that were using it still have access to it). If there is a new option that would help, please submit a new suggestion.

  12. Timed App Access

    It would be good not only to block certain apps but have the ability to block others a certain times of the day/week eg. school hours, nights etc.

  15. Limit or remove access to Airplane mode

    Tracking can be removed if the device is allowed to go into Airplane mode. For users that will never use the device on the airplane or travel there should be a way to limit the Airplane mode capability. This would be nice so that the device can be tracked all of the time.

    Apple does not currently make it possible to configure or restrict the Airplane Mode setting on devices via MDM. Sorry.

  16. Possible to control supervised device brightness settings via SimpleMDM?

    Hey there,

    If possible, I would love to be able to remotely configure/control a supervised iOS device's brightness settings via SimpleMDM.

    I am already aware of the setting to disable auto-lock for supervised devices, but right now the screen is still dimming.

    Is it possible to control the device's brightness slide remotely?

    Our use case is a deployment of kiosk-mode devices that are locked down to using the Safari app to display content.

    We have received complaints that the device screens are too dim.

    Would prefer not to have to manually adjust the settings on each in-person.

    Thanks!

    Apple does not currently support this. Some kiosk software does, however, so we suggest checking with your kiosk software manufacturer.

  17. Add Restrictions

    Put more restrictions, like other systems of IT manangement to get the best of MDM and the iOS Apple Device.

  18. 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…

    This is already available using the Lost Mode command for Supervised iOS devices.

  19. End user editable Home Screen configurations

    Allow home screen configurations to be editable by end users.

    I love and want the ability to create a starting home screen configuration for my iPad/iPhone end users - but I absolutely hate that it's then locked so they cannot change it further after that.

    Also the iPads with iOS 13 have far more built in applications than what the Home Screen configuration shows, so a dozen apps just end up stuck in the second screen. Also please expand the limit of apps in a folder to more than 9, iOS does not have that small a limitation normally.

    As it stands, Apple's MDM spec prevents users from editing the home screen layout if it is configured using a profile. Unfortunately Apple does not currently provide a workaround for this (besides not applying the Home Screen Layout profile), so I am closing this request for the time being.


    That said, SimpleMDM's Home Screen Layout profile does now support more than 9 apps per folder. That functionality has been added since this request was submitted.

  20. Supervised feature: disable mode features

    Add the option to disable more in the settings remotely in supervised mode.

    Like location, background process (for DeviceLink apps to work properly!) ...

    Apple does not currently make it possible to configure/restrict location services or background updates settings on devices via MDM. If there are other settings/options you would like to see implemented, please submit a new suggestion.
