Automatic mail when a device has not been seen for a set amount of time
Add a function to automaticly receive a mail message when a device has not been seen for a set time period.

I'd also love to see this implemented as a webhook as well - rather than just an email - but this would be super handy :)

Notification if device is offline for given time. We have some devices in remote locations and would like to be notified if they have not checked in with the MDM for a specified period so that we can investigate why the devices are offline.

This can be done without any action from SimpleMDM. Just have a cron task that pull the lastSeen date of each device using the SimpleMDM API and email yourself if one hasn't been seen for a while. Super simple to do even with an AWS Lambda so you don't need to have a server of your own.
Then you can control the set time period, incremental back-off, batching if you have multiple devices missing, etc.
Yes, very good idea!

Yes please! We manage iPad kiosks and this would make it so we don't have to constantly manually check to see if the device is still connected to a network and still operating. Thanks.
