  1. Present passwords in a font that disambiguates similar characters

    Just had a frightening incident in which I thought we had been locked out of a managed device. Turns out the problem was just that the firmware password was hard to read: I was mistaking a 1 for an l.

    I suggest you choose a different font for passwords/recovery codes/etc., which makes very clear whether a given character is a 1 or l; likewise for 0 and O, which I also mistake on a regular basis.

  2. Update UI to Indicate Custom PKGs Can't Be Removed By MDM

    Recently I pushed a custom PKG to a MacBook Air over MDM. While the SimpleMDM interface allows you to "uninstall" the package, nothing actually occurs since this capability is not possible. The lack of clarification from the UI is generally confusing, and it would be nice to update it and save others in the future from the same confusion.

  3. Enable deploying apps via the "Managed Update" Munki manifest functionality

    I want to be able to update apps on machines enrolled in SimpleMDM without installing those apps, through the SimpleMDM Munki Integration, so that I can patch vulnerabilities on certain machines, but without targeting those machines directly.

    This reduces the amount of work I need to do, and if in the future, an employee installs an older, vulnerable version SimpleMDM will update that app, without me installing it on everyone.

  4. Automatically switch accounts if necessary when navigating to serial number URL

    For users with access multiple SimpleMDM accounts, using direct-to-device links like https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/?serial_number=C02J20WTXY3B only works if the device is in the last account used. It would be extremely helpful to jump to the proper account, particularly for creating links to SimpleMDM devices from other products such as Watchman or Addigy.

  5. Allow support for creating Munki type assignment groups via API

    Add ability to use the SimpleMDM API to create new assignment groups using Munki. This is currently not possible and add new assignment groups are standard types.

  6. Location Tracking by group

    We can select different groups which is great but locations are tracked by either all devices or individually. It would be great if we could track by groups

  7. Device filter on OS versions

    In the Devices page I want the ability to filter on OS versions and by device type or enrolment type. This way I can easily monitor for compliance OS devices.

  8. Enter multiple email addresses in the billing email field of account settings

    For backup or other internal reasons, it could be helpful to be able to enter more than one recipient to be notified, once billing occured and to receive receipts. Maybe a separator like semicolon or comma could already do the trick?

  11. Multi-device Push Assigned Apps

    In the dropdown of individual devices, there is an option in the "Actions" dropdown to "Push Assigned Apps and Media". It would be nice to have this in the main device menu's "Actions" dropdown, which would push apps to all selected devices.

  13. Please update your invoices.

    The invoice numbers are long and the accounting system hates them. Can you also included the start and end dates of the charges invoiced.

    Thank you,

  14. API device_groups support Create Update Delete

    Hi, the /devices endpoint currently supports create/update/delete - https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#update-6

    Could we get support for create/update/delete on the /device_groups endpoint as well?

    We have a use case where we would like to clone an existing (template) group and name it. This is not currently possible via the API.

    Thanks!

  15. Add restart option to FileVault profile

    Currently, FileVault will not be enabled on MacOS until the user either logs out or logs in, depending on how it is configured. It would be great to add the ability to restart the machine once enrollment is complete to ensure FileVault is enabled as soon as possible.

  16. Add full app path to collected apps & return with API

    When reviewing / querying apps it would helpful to know the full path of all found apps. Would like this returned in the API as well.

  17. Bring parity to timing options in Apple's Security & Preferences menu

    In System preferences, in the Security and Preferences -> General tab, the "Require password <insert timeframe> after sleep or screen saver begins" dropdown has many more granular options than SimpleMDM allows. My company's security policy prefers 5 seconds after lock, but our only close options are immediate or 1 minute after sleep. It would be nice to have parity between the SimpleMDM configuration options and the options Apple allows.

  19. Extend the included Device fields via the CVS download option

    Appears to be missing a few key fields:
    - passcode policy enabled (This is not the same as "firmware password" and btw, a similar field is downloaded but we think it's tied to iOS devices as opposed to Mac OS)
    - Firewall enabled
    - Mac OS Patch Management enabled
    - Anti-virus / Malware enabled

    You may recognize these as SOC2 requirements. Would be ideal to run a report / download for all devices with this data included. Thanks!

  20. Provide a UI to configure system level DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT) for macOS and iOS

    Many of us managing devices via MDM have to assume the devices are on networks that are insecure, malicious, or in the best case scenario, not malicious but definitely not private.

    The standard way of doing DNS in those environments is unsafe, as the DHCP server can provide any resolver, and the traffic to those servers is made in the clear.

    DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT) are two options we have to make computing in such environments safer, by ensuring queries are encrypted as they leave the device.

    Big Sur and iOS 14 both support this,…
