  1. 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…

  2. Schedule Single App Mode Changes Overnight

    We are running iPads as Kiosks and only want to push updates to them overnight when users will not be effected, Ideally this would include all config changes but most importantly these:


    • Non VPP App Updates (enterprise apps)

    • iOS updates

    • Other Configuration changes

  3. Centralized Billing for Multiple Accounts

    As an MSP we manage several SimpleMDM accounts. It would be very helpful to receive and pay a single bill for all of these accounts.

  4. Setup wireless to allow for open networks

    Within the wireless settings, put in an option to allow for connecting to open networks. Would be good for public wireless connections that may need to go thru an acceptance screen or a proxy filter to allow connection. Currently it is only feasible thru a profile manager .config file custom attribute import. Would be nice to have this directly available in wireless security options.

  5. Allow wallpaper to be set per user/device as well as per group

    Hi,

    Could you possibly allow us to set the phone wallpaper per device, overriding the default wallpapers set in the group the device belongs to?

    We are looking at customising the wallpapers with ID related information (per user), but currently we'd have to setup a device group for EVERY device one-by-one.

  6. True Power management

    Ability to set power schedules on devices. This would be for devices set up as kiosks to cycle power based on a time frame to provide a more environmentally friendly setup while providing device longevity. A must for kiosks, considering kiosk mode is an option.

  7. Table view customizable

    The main table view should function like a true dashboard that has sortable and customizable options for the columns. It is too limited now and requires many clicks to drill down to see data like OS version etc. just way too much clicking to get basic info

  8. Expose md5 and/or Other Checksum(s) of Enterprise Apps in Catalogue

    Once an app binary has been uploaded and deployed to devices via MDM it can be hard to find which particular build is actually deployed to the world.

    If you may happen to have binaries that share the same BundleID, CFBundleVersion, and CFBundleVersionShortString there is no way to tell which app is actually uploaded. If we could see an md5 checksum or sha1 or sha256 it wold be a nice and easy way to know with confidence which binary was uploaded.

  9. Unique DEP local admin password (per device)

    It would be great if the password of the local administrator account created during the DEP enrolment was unique to that device.

    The password could be shown in the device information together with the EFI password and FileVault recovery key.

  10. Allow unlimited apps in folders of "Home Screen Layout" profiles

    As far as I know, iOS does not limit the number of app in one folder, but currently with SimpleMDM interface to manager home screen layout we are limited to 9 apps per folder.

  11. Add a "comment" field to the Kernel Extension policy page

    It would be awesome to have a comment field so we could note which app or developer each team ID or bundle ID is for.

  12. Multiple DEP Settings

    Other MDM's provide a visual list of devices assigned to a server in the DEP portal. This gives the ability to scope the devices to different DEP settings before enrolment and therefore control which DEP settings are used and which group is used initially. This would mean you can still automatically assign devices to a single server in the DEP portal but would allow you to preload the configuration the devices pick up at enrolment time.

  13. add local device IP address to the device view

    We're using SimpleMDM to place devices on a specific network vlan - and locking them down into Single App Mode... which makes troubleshooting tricky. It would be invaluable (to me at least) if devices could report their local wireless IP address

  14. Enable complete location history

    The location history shown on the map only appears to show the last 24 hours for the device. I would like to be able to download a complete history for a time range. The system is already collecting a brief history, it seems it would only be a small mod to enable a longer history, perhaps downloadable.

  15. add an "auto-join" feature to wifi profiles

    I've noticed that configurator (and other MDMs) have an "auto-join" option that can be set when you create a wifi profile. I think this might help solve an issue we're having where we can't force devices onto a specific network. I'm hoping that judicious use of "auto-join" will allow us to select the correct network for a device via SimpleMDM

  16. Hide Apps in the Catalog (and in the assignment drop downs as well)

    I would like to see a feature that would allow me to "Hide" VPP Apps in the catalog, and thereby also hide them in the drop downs when assigning them.

    The dilemma that I’m running into is that some apps vendors have issued completely new apps under the same name to replace an old one: For example, GoToMeeting and Sharefile both have “Old” and “New” apps in the system. I would like to hide the old ones in the catalog and the in the dropdowns so that I don’t accidentally assign them.

    There are also apps that vendors no longer…

  17. app version device distribution

    See adoption of a specific app version.

    We publish continuously new versions of our mdm distributed enterprise app. Often, however, users decline to update to a certain version because e.g. they're in the middle of using the app. We know how to send another updated cycle out to the devices, but sometimes it would be helpful to see which devices have a specific version. Right now we have to manually go into each device, then to the apps section to see what's going on. Quite annoying for 30 devices and the numbers of our devices will increase in the future.

  19. Lookup exact model

    Based on https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201300 you could show the exact model names.

    This would be useful to see the age of our Macs and distinguish between 13 and 15 inch models.

    Today this information is only available in the export.
