  1. Add a webhook for a device lock.enabled event

    At the moment there's no obvious feedback that a lock command has been received and processed. It would awesome if there was a webhook triggered when a device responds to a lock command...

  2. Allow Duplicate Key Values for Managed App Configurations

    Our application, Redzone and Redzone Admin, allows for App Configurations with the following keys:
    - serverURL (string)
    - serverDescription (string)

    There are many customers who have access to multiple server's and therefore would benefit from the ability to push multiple server's to their devices. In most MDM's, we provide our customers with an XML file they can import that makes use of an array to pass multiple sites at once.

    SimpleMDM doesn't allow the upload of an PLIST/XML file to achieve this functionality, nor does it allow for duplicate key values and therefore our customers with multiple servers are unable…

  3. add more granular SimpleMDM User Roles

    As the lead client systems engineer at a medium sized global organization I would like to be able to more granularly delegate current aspects of User Roles in SimpleMDM for a variety of reasons.

    Example: I want to allow my Service Desk and Audio Visual team members to move devices into and out of groups to control features like Single Application Lock for appliance iPads, without giving them access to modify account level settings or make changes to the group configurations.

    Admin configuration permissions are now more granular, allowing for configuration of just profiles, devices, enrollments, or other aspects of SimpleMDM.

    This ticket will remain open as some of the requests related to permission scoped to individual devices or device groups.

  4. Custom Attribute API Support (set default, get single)

    Ideally available from the API:
    - retrieve a single attribute and its default (by name or id)
    - set a default attribute

  5. Show iOS version on the devices list

    The devices list is super useful and it would be great to add a column that shows the OS version. I know you can export the devices list to get this information, but it would be good to have it front-and-center.

  6. Auto Update Time

    It would be helpful to be able to pick a time of day that apps can auto deploy ideally late afternoon to early evening.

  7. Add column sorting to apps

    When looking at all devices with an installed app, it would be nice to be able to sort by the columns instead of only sorting by device name. This would let me sort to see what devices have old versions of an app installed instead of having to copy and paste into an excel file.

  9. Restrict roles to specific device groups

    As we grow in the number of devices we have a need to delegate device actions for specific groups. Can we have an option to restrict a specific role to one (or more groups)?

    This would allow department heads to manage their own devices but not manage the devices of middle management or higher.

  10. Employee Roster

    Relatively minor request: an employee roster who you could "assign" devices to. This could be a sortable column on the device list and would prevent you from having to including the employee name in the device name or notes. The only alternative I can think of is to create a device group for each employee and assign the devices accordingly. But this would be grossly inefficient.

  12. The ability to reorganize or customize the arrangement of the Profiles page

    The Profiles page becomes cluttered by all the different profiles inserted, it would be very helpful if there was an option to organize them in maps.

  13. Show Device Lock status via webUI and API

    So - similar to JP's suggestion... https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/36523045-show-a-list-of-locked-devices

    BUT - at the moment a device can have one of three statuses returned via the API

    enrolled
    enrolling
    *unenrolled

    Could you also add

    Lock Command sent
    Lock command received

    (or similar) as a status. We're in a position where we want to prevent multiple device admins sending lock commands to the same lost device. Yes you can check the logs first, but are folk really going to do that?

    We also want to build a lock functionality via the API - and want to be able to check if a lock command…

  14. Change "save" when editing a profile

    ... to a different word. Perhaps "save and push"? Or perhaps saving and pushing should be two separate things.

    It's not self evident when you save the profile that it also will push the new profile to all of the devices.

  15. Change the wording of the "refresh inventory" feature

    It's not great wording. Instead, the classic circular arrows chasing each other in a button form could be used.

  16. Filter on a field

    For example, show me only devices whose firmware password isn't set.

    Also, it would be handy to be able to generate a report for this rather than just a search filter.

  17. create a way to connect to a file server on native file iOS app

    Need a way to add an smb server connection automatically. I would like to use the native files ios app. I am not seeing this as possible currently as the app is not custom configurable like apps that are purchased. Would be useful in connections to local server that are not cloud based yet but are connectable over vpn with remote work going on now.

  19. Show app version on app assignment page

    We sometimes upload different versions of the same app for assignment to different devices. On the app assignment page, it is difficult to see what version I'm assigning without actually clicking on the app link and seeing the version on the app page.

    Please show the app's version directly on the assignment page.

  20. show log history of app activity on device

    This is a feature built into apple settings and should be pullable on an mdm solution. So we can report back activity to managers and know which apps are getting used that we deploy. Especially important with an increasingly large remote workforce.
