I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Scope API key

    I'd like multiple API keys able to be generated in the UI that have scoped permissions, for example, one API key restricted to only being able to hit the device endpoint, or one API key only being able to access Users.

    With this feature, it would reduce the threat of the API key being compromised as it's potential scope would be limited.

    • Add scheduling flexibility for iOS Auto Update Policy

      As many businesses are limited to which day(s) of the week upgrades can be performed, adding more versatility to the scheduling would be very helpful.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • provide multi-tenancy for large organizations

                Provide a mechanism for a large organization to distribute management of devices for departments/campuses/colleges/units. Management policies should be able to be applied at the organizational level as well as the "unit" level. Devices should be able to automatically sort to unit levels based on properties. Admins should be able to manage one or multiple units. VPP accounts should be available for the whole organization and units. DEP should be available for the whole organization and units.

                • 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.

                  • Add YubiKey (U2F) support for two-factor logi

                    I'd love to be able to add my two YubiKeys as alternate options for two-factor login to the admin console.
                    Most web interfaces I work with I have two U2F keys enrolled and the usual TOTP token codes as a backup.

                            It would be nice to know if commands/messages were successfully sent to a device.

                            • Assign settings (especially certificates) to individual users/devices

                              I would like to be able to push per-user TLS certificates to devices. This is useful for authenticating users' devices to internal web sites and VPNs (e.g. OpenVPN Connect app) as an additional layer of security before an attacker would even be presented with a login prompt, and it is a requirement of certain firewalls' OpenVPN configuration.

                                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

The system is already collecting a brief history, it seems it would only be a small mod to enable a longer history, perhaps downloadable.

                                  • 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

                                    • Implement a self enrolment portal for end users

                                      I would like to be able to get users to simply enrol in SimpleMDM through a URL, similar to JAMFnow enrolment portal.

                                      This is a very simple way to boost enrolment on user side and allows administrators to easily enrol devices on the go. No longer remembering long enrolment URLs.

                                      JAMFnow workflow
                                      User goes to company.jamfnow.com
                                      User is provided with dropdown list of available groups to enrol in

                                        Remember Group selected and # of devices to display on the Devices screen. Currently every time you navigate back to Devices page, it goes back to listing all groups and only the first 20 devices.

                                        • 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.
