  1. SimpleMDM granularity

    Hi SimpleMDM Dev Team:

    Thank you for allowing this space to share creative thought in the ongoing development of SimpleMDM. May some of my ideas have already been discussed, maybe not-- regardless I trust this will be taken into consideration.

    Since the slow death of Apple's Profile Manager has left very little control to us in IT as Admins and Engineers, it would be nice to see SimpleMDM pick up the slack and not just fill in the gap but lead with the innovation of a few things in the macOS platform so that many of us can continue to…

  2. Push scripts and or terminal commands to macOS clients

    I need to be able to push scripts and terminal commands to my macOS clients from my MDM solution.

    If this was in place, it would open up a lot of possibilities for tighter integration with a package distribution system like Munki.

  4. Add Support for onboard or installed S/MIME Certificates

    It would be awesome if ActiveSync Email Accounts provided by a Provider could allow for either manually installed (onboard) or MDM provided S/MIME certificates.

  5. Allow to apply a profile to a specific device.

    Would be great to have the possibility to apply a custom profile to a specific device without having to create a new group!

  6. Add CardDav Account Profile

    In the same way Email Account is now a profile with custom attributes support add a CardDav Account Profile with custom attribute support.

    This would allow a CardDav account to be automaticly set up on each device

  7. lost mode via API

    I would like to be able to enable lost mode via API.

    Better, would be the ability to configure a given time since a device has last reported its location… or last checked in, and allow either lost mode or lock to be enabled by MDM itself.

  8. Add directory services integration (LDAP/Active Directory)

    For enterprise, integration with directory services is essential. I need to be able to target machines and devices for actions and reporting based on an assigned active directory user and/or the user's groups.

    This should include enrollment, targeting for policies, targeting for package deployment, etc.

    I see there might be some initial work being done in the Configs -> Providers menu, but as is, it is not enough to configure LDAP.

  9. Support self-enrollment using directory service credentials

    Provide for directory service (AD et al) user authentication information to be used for self-enrollment of devices. The authenticated user information should also be written to the device record so we know that user is tied to the enrolled device.

  11. Quick Look App Version Installation

    Have a section on the portal which shows each app and version and how many devices are on each.

    This would be useful to see how many devices have downloaded the new version of an app.

  14. Add Documents

    Apple Configurator 2 when adding documents it picks up what apps are installed and you are able to add documents to that particular app.

    In my case, we are using Filemaker Go and we have manuals to go into the app. Having the ability to upload manuals straight to said app via the MDM would be AMAZING!!

  15. Completely lock the device

    I'd like the ability to prevent someone using a device for a period. This could be combination of a device lock, along with a passcode change, or some "auto" way to push a device into single app mode with the SimpleMDM app as the only one, with a basic "device is locked until xx" message.

    This is just a situation where you want to prevent device use until you re-allow it or a way to stop the device being used for anything until a certain time.

    If you could do this as a feature, this would be huge with the…

    Jailbreak detection.

    While everything I've read about this says it's not perfect, something would be better than nothing. Thanks.

  17. Allow import of custom profiles for a single device.

    As it is now, you can upload a custom configuration profile to a group. It would be great to have a option to put some configuration profile on a single device, not having to create a group for this one device and then upload the custom profile.

  20. Add API endpoints for viewing notes and updating Device information

    Currently when you call for a Device via API, it's missing the 'Notes' attribute. It would be helpful to be able to access that.

    In addition, an update endpoint for Devices would be incredibly helpful so you could change the name/notes on a device.
