Have a great idea that you’d like to see added to our service? Perhaps there’s an existing feature that you’d like to have extended or modified? Share it here!

  1. 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.

  2. Location Address or Coordinates on Device Details Page

    It would be great to have the location address or coordinates available to see on the device details page for easy access. As of now, it's only available via API.

  4. ability to see per-device logs via the API

    Right now you can query the logs via the API. Which is great! :) BUT - you have to pull ALL log events and then parse through them.

    I'd love the ability to pull the logs for a specific device via the API - which is clearly something you can do in the WebUI via filters and voodoo.

    My end goal is being able to query if a lock.enabled command is in the logs, so I can confirm a device has received a remote lock command.

    But I'm sure being able to query individual device logs for other entries would…

  5. Send an email to the admin when Apps are automatically updated.

    We are switching from VM Ware and the admins are emailed anytime a new version of an VPP App is updated. It's very useful if there is a glitch and the new version app is the cause. Just handy to know the update went out.

  6. API: Retrieve one Custom Attribute

    Can we get API to retrieve one Custom Attribute?

    Call can be like "set value" just with get:

    HTTP Request

    GET https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/devices/{DEVICEID}/customattributevalues/{CUSTOMATTRIBUTE_ID}

    Response: as it is when retrieving all:

    {

    data: [
    
    {
    type: custom_attribute_value,
    id: name_of_attribute,
    attributes: {
    value: value_of_attribute
    }
    ]

    }

  7. Dropdown Menu or Arrows for Efficient Scrolling Through Device List

    Very minor request. But it would be nice to have a drop-down menu or up and down arrows when on the device detail page so you may easily scroll through your device list—just as on the device group detail page.

  8. Allow different Device Naming settings per Enrolment group

    Currently we are able to name our device on enrolment which is great, however we cant have a different naming convention per enrolment group. We would like to be able to name the devices differently for each enrolment group.

  11. Allow Webclips to be named differently than the profile name

    Webclips have to share the name of the profile, our company has a specific naming convention for profiles and sometimes our webclips need to be named differently.

  12. Make Lock PIN #s / Filevault Recovery Keys Available Via the API

    Same logic as Filevault Keys. Make them available via API.

    Bonus points if the new API copes could limit access to PINs/ FV keys.

  14. Parameter Filters

    I really love how you can use parameters in many places. That said, it would be even better if we could have some simple "filters", or string functions, like many template languages have.

    E.g. I get the first and last name as custom parameters from the enrollment login. It would be great if I could set the username to something like {{first_name|lowercase}}

  15. End user editable Home Screen configurations

    Allow home screen configurations to be editable by end users.

    I love and want the ability to create a starting home screen configuration for my iPad/iPhone end users - but I absolutely hate that it's then locked so they cannot change it further after that.

    Also the iPads with iOS 13 have far more built in applications than what the Home Screen configuration shows, so a dozen apps just end up stuck in the second screen. Also please expand the limit of apps in a folder to more than 9, iOS does not have that small a limitation normally.

  16. make profile removal password protected without enrolling with DEP

    This was previously declined in 2018, here: https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/34296127-make-profile-removal-password-protected-without-en

    I suspect the answer was wrong then, but it is definitely wrong now, in December 2019, for macOS 10.15.2.

    I created a one-time enrollment, downloaded the mobileconfig, stripped the signature, added a RemovalPassword via Configurator (v2.11), and installed the profile. My device then connected to SimpleMDM and downloaded the rest of the config. This is presented in the 10.15.2 Profiles Pane UI as a set of distinct profiles (1 per profile configured in SimpleMDM). None of those "mini profiles" are removable but the top level one is. When removing it, it requires…

  17. App installation dependencies for macOS

    We have some installation dependencies for applications that we're deploying to macOS, but it doesn't appear possible to specify dependencies for Apps & Media within SimpleMDM. Because of that, we're unable to control the order that those packages are installed in. It would be nice to have the ability to mark certain app install bundles as dependent upon others.

  18. Support clearing safari cache

    We run websites on kiosk devices with locked down url profile. Would be great to support clearing the cache, or locking the browser to private browsing mode.

  20. Creating a simple browser app to allow you to run (lock you down to) only 1 website ..

    There are lots of businesses that only want staff to access a certain website, but due to Apple's limitations this is impossible.
    Suggestion is to create a browser app that can be programmed for only 1 (or more) specific websites. Then integrate it with your mdm for pushing the specific needed site(s)..
