  1. Prestage Enrollment with DEP

    Please add the ability to set custom attributes for DEP Devices which have not yet enrolled with SimpleMDM.

    This would enable us to set some user attributes (email addresses, user names etc.) before handing the device to the user. Right now we are not able to preset a Google account profile for a user for a full zero touch deployment.

  2. Password attribute

    It would be super, it it was possible to create a attribute such as Password (with hidden entry), so that it is not necessary to separately VPN accounts for all users, but that it would be enough to do it once.

  3. Preserve selected tabs and page state on reload

    There are many pages in SimpleMDM that have multiple tabs such as App detail, Device detail, etc.

    I frequently reload these pages to see updated inventory for apps installed, or updated device information. When I reload the page, it always goes back to the first tab and resets everything, so I have to click back to where I was.

    Could at least the selected tab and maybe even page state be preserved on reload?

  4. Activity feed / History which show changes made in the portal

    Hey Simple,

    When our admins make changes, these aren't recorded anywhere. This means that when a mistake is made, we don't have a log of what change was made in order to revert this.

    It would be awesome if there was an activity feed or a history which showed any changes made by an admin in the portal.

  5. Make it possible to "uncheck all" options in a Restrictions Profile

    It's might make creating a new restrictions profile more efficient if I could "uncheck all" Restrictions checkboxes, or "uncheck all" on a per section basis of the Restrictions profile.

  6. Low licence warning

    We're using pre-paid licences (rather than pay as you go with a credit card) and have hit the hard limit of seats a couple of times. Which breaks new enrolments in unpleasant ways.

    Could some kind of mechanism to auto-alert admins (or a web hook? Or and API we can call?) be added when the free seats drop below a user defined threshold so we can start the process of ordering more licences?

  7. Allow app updates to be (manually) pushed to multiple devices at once

    From the Apps->Catalog->Installs screen, add a "Push update" option to the Action menu, letting me push the most recent app binary to multiple devices at once.

    At the moment, I have to go via Devices -> Devices -> Apps and update devices one at a time.

    My use case is pushing an RC version of the app to c 3-4 manager devices, and then pushing the same/approved version to many more client devices. All at once. (Without having to generate a spurious additional build version and using auto-update during the update binary process).

  9. More detailed permissions in SimpleMDM

    "Allow configuration changes" is too general. We would like to restrict changes on group settings and only allow our colleagues to change the group of a device, but not the settings of the group.

  12. Introduce a 'Force Check In' button

    Add a button to force all devices to check in. If a device cannot check in after this, then flag it.
    This will help identify issues with the installed profile or check in issues.

  14. Create admin notes fields within the SMDM console

    Create an ‘admin notes’ field for each config setting in the console. This will allow basic change logs for any configuration changes.

  15. CalDAV and CardDAV support macOS

    Under iOS you can add a card account to the device. But under a macOS device yo can not. This would be a good addition.

  16. Privacy option for iOS devices

    In Europe its critical to record information about employees. It would be great if we could setup a MDM group were we can add our employees iOS devices and in this group we don't see the device location (already possible) and also disable the "Apps" tab, which can contain very personal information about installed apps.

  17. SonicWALL Mobile Connect v5 compatible VPN Provider

    Current provider uses VPNSubType com.sonicwall.SonicWALL-SSLVPN.vpnplugin which does not work with version 5+ of the macOS SonicWALL Mobile Connect.app.

    New VPNSubType is com.sonicwall.SonicWALL-Mobile-Connect

  18. Report on UAMDM status

    We can already see UAMDM status (https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/33088666-uamdm-status) - but as we roll out to more machines it would be useful to have a report or column view or other way to work out which machines are enrolled but have not been approved by the user.

    I appreciate we could write a lookup against the API to query this status - but that doesn't really scale when we hit 1000s of machines

    Thanks :)

  19. Add channel choice for VPN profiles

    It would be excellent to have the ability to push VPN profiles as both user and device channel (similar to custom configuration profiles).

  20. Reset Firmware

    An easy way to remove an EFI Firmware Password from a users device (Maybe a click button in the console where the password is displayed?) and also a way to re-apply it more easily after performing SMC (System Management Controller) and PRAM/NVRAM (Parameter Random Access Memory / Non-Volatile RAM) resets. (I contacted support beforehand. Even better would be a way to push an SMC reset to the machine, or PRAM, but I don't think this would be possible???

    At the moment, I am booting into recovery on a users device, turning the EFI PW off, restarting, performing a SMC reset…
