  1. allow for disabling notifications in iOS and controlling privacy System Services in MDM

    I know Apple has some limitations on this but it would be good to be able to disable notifications on the screen from SimpleMDM. Also the ability to control the Privacy > System Services screen options thru a boolean on and off config like those available in a custom app configuration. Since this is an iOS control I am not sure if there is a string that can be added to allow for this under privacy controls or not. Thanks for your consideration.

  2. Manually assign AirPrint Profiles without using groups

    The only way to deploy AirPrint Profiles is via group memberships but in order to limit each iPad to only see the printer it should print to I would have to create a group for every single printer. This would mean several dozen groups at least.

    It would be great if we can just go into a device's information and select which AirPrint profiles it should receive.

  3. Assign devices to Group based on LDAP attribute at enrollment stage

    Since you support authenticating DEP enrollment via LDAP it would be nice to then place a device in the appropriate group based on some LDAP attribute of the user's account.

  4. 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.

  5. Review your web portal to make it mobile responsive

    It would be great to make your web site responsive when it is displayed on a mobile device.

    I daily use my iPhone with Safari to remotely restart some iPads that are lock in security stands. The web admin portal is not responsive, so I have to scroll the web site to view all info and sometimes the text is overlaying.

  6. "Allow device actions" permission should allow setting per-device settings

    (or create a new permission for it)

    Right now the set of permissions does not work for our use case, which I believe should be quite common:

    1) One set of people (our engineers) creates the various configs, profiles, groups, and define custom attributes. These guys need access to the "Configs", "Apps" and "Devices" sections. On "Devices", they are mostly interested in creating Groups.

    2) A separate set of people (IT support staff) deals with actually deploying the devices. These people need only access to the "Devices" tabs. But they needs access not only to the "Device actions", but also…

  7. Return the "Marketing/Human Readable" name for a Mac via the API

    At the moment SimpleMDM can return a model name and a product name via the API.

    However, the product names aren't unique - Apple occasionally reuse them... would it be possible for SimpleMDM to return the "Human Readable" name as well i.e. "MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)" rather than just MacBookPro13,2

    We'd like to use SimpleMDM to populate our asset management system via the API - and would prefer to use the Human Readable name

    There are examples of how to do this here: http://scriptingosx.com/2017/11/get-the-marketing-name-for-a-mac/ and here https://github.com/MagerValp/MacModelShelf

  8. User based app distribution via VPP without device enrolment.

    Currently Simple MDM allows for user based app distribution when they have a device enrolled into the MDM, however, there are circumstances where an entity may not wish to manage an end users device, such as a BYOD program in a K-12 institute.

    In these circumstances, it would be great to have a mechanism by which one could import users and their email, or use an API call, to send out invites to participate in receiving Apple ID based managed distribution apps via VPP.

    For example, we would import users from a CSV (Name,Email); or use an API call with…

  9. Configuration Profile Auditing

    I would like to see a single view to show a non-technical auditor that a list of devices have a config profile installed (for example, a passcode policy or any policy). Ideally, I would assign the technical auditor rights to login and just see what’s installed on what devices.

  10. Setup a role option to only have access to view/rotate FV PRK

    We have techs that need to access the FV PRK for troubleshooting purposes and also rotate the key if they view/use it. The current Role options are too broad and give access to other features that the techs shouldn't have access to.

    I'd like to see a user Role option to allow _only_ the rotation of a FV PRK and not the the rest of `Push assigned apps and updates. Wipe, lock, remove passcode, locate, and message devices. Enable and disable lost mode for devices.` Checking the box for that Role option gives me the rotation option but I don't…

  12. Stop WIFI Sharing

    As of iOS 11 you can now share your network settings. This poses a problem for devices that aren't company owned. Users can now share the password with other Apple devices that are close by. We would like to prevent MDM devices from sharing passwords with any other device.

  14. Add column for updates on Devices screen

    It would be good to see if a device has an update from the Devices Screen, rather than just when you go in to the device settings. This would be useful for non-DEP devices that are unable to have the auto update function enabled due to them not being enrolled in DEP.

    Would be goot to be able to push the update from that screen also.

  19. 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.

  20. Adjustable time for Two Factor Authencation

    Allow adjustable time for Two Factor Authentication - the default should require the pin to be required at each log in. The current setting is several days between prompts. Alternately this should at least be configurable to per logon, 1 hour, or 1 day etc as this is a security risk two factor authentication is support to mitigate.
