  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Add option to flag device as stolen - alternate default group and email alerted when a specific SN enrolls

    In a scenario when a device is stolen we can flag it as stolen in the SimpleMDM interface and have email alerts be sent to the SimpleMDM Admin's when that SN registers with the service. Additionally, it would be handy to have a separate default group for devices flagged as stolen so if the OS is reinstalled and the device re-enrolls it doesn't end up in the company's default group.

    In SimpleMDM you can revoke vpp licenses. It would be great if this is possible via SimpleMDM API.

  16. import a CSV containing device information for enrollment

    We would like to see the ability to upload a CSV exported from our previous mobile device manager to send mass text messages with a group enrollment link.
    Use Case: We currently have about 400 devices in the field that need to be remotely enrolled.
    This is low priority, we will use the QR code to enroll all of the devices just fine. This is just an improvement suggestion for the future.

  17. Add setting for a profiles level in the web UI

    Currently profiles like password and screensaver settings are set by SimpleMDM as user-level profiles in macos. With MDM that means only 1 user will have that profile enforced. However, your organization might be obligated to enforce that policy for all users organization wide. It is common for a Mac in a corporate fleet to have at least 2 users. If MDM makes it so user-level profiles are only pushed to 1 of the users, you're not in compliance.

    If it's possible for a profile to be device-level, we should be able to set it as such in the web interface.…

  18. report on mac model, installed ram and cpu type

    The plan is, we'll be populating an asset management system with our MDM data... and the team setting it up would like this data tracked too

    Not sure if the MDM API allows for gathering this information - but it does - this would be really helpful for us.

    Thanks

    Steve

  19. Retain Device Group Scope

    When working with a device group, if I take an action on a device or group of devices, the page reloads and resets my view back to "All Device Groups." It would be MUCH more useful if taking an action kept me at the current device group view instead of resetting to the default.

  20. Display Current Apple VPP App Version in App Catalog

    Provide a listing of the most current version of a VPP application in the Apple VPP store in the Simple MDM app catalog interface. This will provide a reference to compare the current version available with the version that is installed on each device.
