      • Add scheduling flexibility for iOS Auto Update Policy

        As many businesses are limited to which day(s) of the week upgrades can be performed, adding more versatility to the scheduling would be very helpful.

        • Add built-in support for Enforced Software Update Delay for macOS and iOS

          Added in macOS 10.13.4 and iOS 11.3. Would be nice to have built in:

          enforcedSoftwareUpdateDelay

          Supervised only. This restriction allows the admin to set how many days a software update on the device will be delayed. With this restriction in place, the user will not see a software update until the specified number of days after the software update release date.

          The max is 90 days and the default value is 30.

          Availability: Available in iOS 11.3 and later and macOS 10.13.4 and later.

          Mentioned https://developer.apple.com/library/content/featuredarticles/iPhoneConfigurationProfileRef/Introduction/Introduction.html and ofc here https://simplemdm.com/2018/01/25/apple-ios-11-3-macos-10-13-4-mdm-features/.

          Thanks

            • UAMDM status

              Since user accepted things are pretty important with kernel extensions and with 10.13.4b1 Apple is adding more profiles that require UAMDM. It would be extremely helpful if we could get this status on the machine details page right under the FileVault status. The UAMDM info is also coming back from the machine in that same SecurityInfo request so it should be pretty easy to pull apart.

              PS AirWatch just added this with v9.2.3 :)

                UAMDM status and DEP are now shown under “Enrollment” in the device details screen. UAMDM is also found under the “is_user_approved_enrollment” key in the API.

              • Add the ability to schedule forced updates (for both apps and iOS versions)

                It'd be great for OS version updates and App Version (for supervised device VPP apps) forced updates to be schedule-able so that you can force the update to go through at a certain time of day (e.g. midnight or 2am when the device is unlikely to be in use).

                  iOS updates can be scheduled using an “iOS Auto Update Policy”. VPP apps can be set to auto-update from the Apps > Settings section. For scheduling of VPP app updates, please create a separate feature request so that we may track the particular request.

                • report macOS build number as well as macOS version

                  At the moment Simple reports a macOS major version number - so 10.13.3 - but it was pointed out to me that build numbers can show when intermediate patches have been applied - which would be invaluable in showing devices in need of updates/patching.

                  So - my machine is currently running 10.13.3(17D47)

                  Thanks :)

                  • Disable iCloud Keychain sync

                    This is a restriction supported by Apple. But I can not find it in the SimpleMDM restriction configuration.

                    Also supported by many other MDMs.

                      • Maximum auto-lock time

                        Increase the options for "Maximum auto-lock time". Possibly might be good to have the same options as "Maximum grace period before lock". That way it can be synced to have a password required when the screen locks.

                        • Play a sound

                          From the iCloud interface you are able to play a sound to find your iPhone. I just noticed that the Simple MDM does not list that as an action to preform. I realize you could call the phone, but if the switch is on mute, the ringer will not sound, but I believe the play a sound from iCloud works when the mute switch is enabled.

                          • Button to force/request device details

                            Add a button to request device details.
                            Example: When adding/removing an app to/from devices, it takes up to an hour for the portal to reflect the changes. It would be nice to push a request for the data, especially when we don't have the luxury of waiting an hour.

                            • Allow a view device URL based on serial or device ID

                              Watchman Monitoring is looking to build an integration for Macs which are enrolled in SimpleMDM.

                              One thing we'd like to do is present a URL which lands at specific device. Currently this can be done with an internal SimpleMDM ID such as:

                              https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/123456

                              If URLs such as these existed, we could do that without the need for any API/account access

                              https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/UNIQUEIDENTIFIER
                              or
                              https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/SERIALNUMBER

                                • Add email account from configuration profile

                                  In our old (crappy) MDM solution the only thing that wasn't crappy was the ability to configure email accounts on a per device basis via pre-defined email configuration profiles. At the very moment in Simple MDM we have to fill out a couple of fields on the device->accounts->email page manually.

                                  Being able to chose from a list of pre-configured email account configuration profiles would be much smoother for us.

                                  Thanks for considering and hopefully implementing that feature!

                                    Email accounts can now be assigned at the device group level. If the username and password field values are unique for each device, they can be left blank so that the user is prompted for the values. If you would like to add them as an administrator, custom attributes can be used to create username and password values on a per-device basis.

                                    • Printable Receipts

                                      A printable version of the billing history would be perfect. For now one needs to make screenshots of the billing history for accounting purposes.

                                      • allow in-app purchases to be disable via Device Restrictions

                                        Currently, in-app purchases can be disabled via the on-device Restrictions page. However, I do not see this as an option when configuring my Group Restrictions. Can this item be added to the available Restrictions?

                                        Thanks!
                                        -Paul

                                        • Automatically Sync with Apple DEP

                                          Please add an option to allow "Sync with Apple" to happen without admin interaction. Ideally this would sync daily with Apple's deploy.apple.com service. In our environment we purchase from an authorized reseller so they automatically assign the serial numbers to our account and we would ideally like this to sync with SimpleMDM without admin interaction.
