Improve app update process for VPP device-based assignment apps

It appears that an admin must manually force updates for apps distributed using VPP device-based assignment? Some features that would be nice to have: 1) Automatically control app updating via a policy setting; 2) Provide an option to queue the update until device is on wifi; 3) Show the current app version from the app store so it can be compared to current version on the device.

        Any progress on this suggestion? I concur with the others....a policy based approach to app updates would be helpful and minimize helpdesk tickets...so we can be proactive vs. reactive...

        It would be nice to have the functionality to allow admins to create a set maintenance window for the updates. This would prevent automatic updates during the user's business day.

        I second this. Out-of-date apps result in burdensome requests to IT staff and complaints about MDM.
