Have a great idea that you’d like to see added to our service? Perhaps there’s an existing feature that you’d like to have extended or modified? Share it here!

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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Button to force/request device details

    Add a button to request device details.
    Example: When adding/removing an app to/from devices, it takes up to an hour for the portal to reflect the changes. It would be nice to push a request for the data, especially when we don't have the luxury of waiting an hour.

    • Automatically Sync with Apple DEP

      Please add an option to allow "Sync with Apple" to happen without admin interaction. Ideally this would sync daily with Apple's deploy.apple.com service. In our environment we purchase from an authorized reseller so they automatically assign the serial numbers to our account and we would ideally like this to sync with SimpleMDM without admin interaction.

      • Multiple DEP

        Multiple DEP account / configurations.

        I have two classes of devices that we need to manage. One set is very locked down and supervised. The other we don't want to be supervised and just want some basic management. It's a bit painful right now to work around this and we'd love to be able to register sets of devices with different DEP accounts directly on Apple's site.

        • Allow enforcing of Filevault with institutional recovery key.

          In Merakis MDM solution it is possible to enforce Filevault across your fleet using an institutional recovery key. Would really really like to see this feature come to SimpleMDM.

            SimpleMDM includes personal key support with escrow. We believe this is a more secure, superior strategy to using a global institutional recovery key.

            We hope that this will fit your requirements. If it does not, we welcome your feedback on this request.

          • Auto Lock Device

            The ability to set the Auto Screen Lock timer at a group level.
            We already have the ability to display a message on the lock screen at a group level. Just need the ability to set the time for the Auto Lock.

            Thank you.

            • Asset Management

              In Jamf there is a field you can enter on a device labeled "Asset Tag". It was a nice way to keep track of Asset Tag numbers without having to put it into the Device Name.

                Have you considered using a custom attribute? You can add “asset_tag” by visiting Configs > Attributes. This will then add an asset_tag field to each device under device details.

                    Ability to simply browse to a unique account link to enroll a new device. Protect the download with a company pass code. I've used other MDM's and they offer this as an option.

                      Please add the account setup options to the macOS DEP options to the DEP options that SimpleMDM offers. They're described under "Account setup options (macOS only)"

                      • Support SAML authentication for Single Sign-On

                        Having options for increased authentication security is greatly appreciated, and for our organization, is basically a hard requirement for IT systems (and is used everywhere else if at all possible).

                        Having support for SAML in SimpleMDM would significantly increase our interest in using it. Anything that allows you to control company-owned devices should be extremely secure - SAML lets us use our own Identity Provider and control general access, login policies, multifactor requirements, and more.

                        Preferably, the implementation would allow for JIT user creation, or even better, user creation & deactivation provisioning options (preferably via SCIM).

                        For reference, we use…

                        • Support iOS 10.3 Restart Device Command

                          In iOS 10.3, Apple has added support for remotely rebooting a device through an MDM command.

                          This would be a great option for unattended use cases to clear errors remotely. We've had a number of requests for this type of functionality in the past and I'd love to see it supported in SimpleMDM.

                          • "Google Account" Profile Support

                            We are a Google Apps shop and Apple has introduced a great profile called a "Google Account" profile. It specifically configures Email, Calendars, Contacts using Google's login and specific communication protocols (e.g. Web-based, not Exchange nor IMAP/POP).

                            It works for iOS and macOS, and works very nicely to activate new devices with their Google account.

                            The only requirement of the profile is the user's email address to be defined. I think this means the profile needs to be configured as a provider, exactly as you have done with Mail/VPN/etc. profiles.

                            Because of this I cannot use a Custom Configuration Profile,…

                                I would like the ability to have custom fields, more than just a notes field. Ideally would like at least "Assigned to", "Asset tag #" so this information can be exportable. The notes field works, but multiple custom fields would be much more useful.

                                  Custom Attributes are now available in SimpleMDM. This allows you to define fields and assign values on a per-device basis. This information is exportable through the API.

                                • Expose a field for the date a device was first enrolled in SimpleMDM

                                  Hey there, I am guessing you store this information in your database already and just have not exposed it as a field on the site / in your API, but it would be incredibly helpful for us, decision-making wise, to be able to export (via API or CSV file) the date when our devices were first enrolled.

                                  We are trying to do proper analysis about, e.g. device-loss metrics over time, and without this field, we have to dig into our order history or our Apple DEP files and cross-associate/reconcile the information.

                                    It would be handy if the CSV generated by 'Export Devices' included a column with the SimpleMDM Group it belongs to.

                                      • Different time zone support

                                        Enable different time zones for foreign users, let them see the time zone they are instead of whichever simpleMdM use

                                        • Put a message about not having SimpleMDM notifications if there are none

                                          Minor thing, if you have no notifications in SimpleMDM I think it should look a bit different. Either shouldn't let me expand/not show up, or should show "You have no notifications" or something like that.

                                          Cheers.
