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. Add the ability to schedule forced updates (for both apps and iOS versions)

    It'd be great for OS version updates and App Version (for supervised device VPP apps) forced updates to be schedule-able so that you can force the update to go through at a certain time of day (e.g. midnight or 2am when the device is unlikely to be in use).

    • 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

      • 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
        User is prompted for first name and last name
        User is asked to enter a passcode (set by admin)
        User clicks enrol and is now provided with relevant profile

        Must have features: …

        • 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.

          • Further Document or Create Tutorial for SimpleMDM App Deployment

            I've seen mentioned in Slack and seen in my own deployments that a fair amount of confusion comes from having SimpleMDM appear to be listed as an available app, even though a customer still needs to purchase it via VPP in order to deploy it. In my own first usage, I attempted to deploy with out purchasing, and when I figured out what was going on, I was able to correct the problem, but the installation took some time. I've seen at least one other user confused about this in the Mac Admins Slack, and I would expect that this…

            • 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.

              • 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…

                  • Save the last used sort order of the devices list.

                    When checking the devices I often sort by something, like date last seen, then click on a device to view. When I return to the devices list I want to just click the next device, but the sort order has been reset.

                    • Add the ability to see if an app is installed against all users

                      End goal: Ability to see which users have or have not installed a certain app.

                      Idea 1: Have an 'apps' tab where you can filter on select apps against a list of all users and if they have the app or not.
                      Idea 2: Export of all apps installed for all users where I can manually find out where the app isn't listed against the persons name to see that they have not installed the app.

                      Use-case: I am deploying an app within my organisation and I want to be able to see which users have or haven't installed it.…

                      • Play a sound

                        From the iCloud interface you are able to play a sound to find your iPhone. I just noticed that the Simple MDM does not list that as an action to preform. I realize you could call the phone, but if the switch is on mute, the ringer will not sound, but I believe the play a sound from iCloud works when the mute switch is enabled.

                          • Support Adding .pkg and .dmg without signing

                            One of the nice things about Meraki’s SM is the way in which it handles the install of Apps vs SimpleMDM namely:
                            - You dont need to sign a .pkg
                            - You can upload a file or specify a URL as the source of the installer (.pkg or .dmg)

                            Having to sign the .pkg is kinda annoying.

                                We recently had a case where we suspected that one of the app binaries that we uploaded wasn't the one we intended to release. We thought to download the IPA from SimpleMDM and do a hash check against the IPA we had locally, but wasn't able to find any way to download it from the SimpleMDM website.

                                    It would be very beneficial for us to have the option to lock our devices onto a particular Wi-Fi network. We have several networks, but only 1 setup with the correct access and printers. If there was a way to lock our devices onto this network only, it would avoid a lot of issues that we have been having.

                                    • stop resetting the number of visible devices to 20 when moving back to the devices screen.

                                      when moving between menu items, the devices list overview is always reset back to 20, please keep the setting as per last view of the user

                                        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.

                                          It would be good to have a user forum to be able to bounce issues off other users
