    • 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.

      • Allow a view device URL based on serial or device ID

        Watchman Monitoring is looking to build an integration for Macs which are enrolled in SimpleMDM.

        One thing we'd like to do is present a URL which lands at specific device. Currently this can be done with an internal SimpleMDM ID such as:

        https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/123456

        If URLs such as these existed, we could do that without the need for any API/account access

        https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/UNIQUEIDENTIFIER
        or
        https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices/SERIALNUMBER

          • Add email account from configuration profile

            In our old (crappy) MDM solution the only thing that wasn't crappy was the ability to configure email accounts on a per device basis via pre-defined email configuration profiles. At the very moment in Simple MDM we have to fill out a couple of fields on the device->accounts->email page manually.

            Being able to chose from a list of pre-configured email account configuration profiles would be much smoother for us.

            Thanks for considering and hopefully implementing that feature!

              Email accounts can now be assigned at the device group level. If the username and password field values are unique for each device, they can be left blank so that the user is prompted for the values. If you would like to add them as an administrator, custom attributes can be used to create username and password values on a per-device basis.

            • Printable Receipts

              A printable version of the billing history would be perfect. For now one needs to make screenshots of the billing history for accounting purposes.

              • allow in-app purchases to be disable via Device Restrictions

                Currently, in-app purchases can be disabled via the on-device Restrictions page. However, I do not see this as an option when configuring my Group Restrictions. Can this item be added to the available Restrictions?

                Thanks!

                • 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.

                      • Group or global level default custom attribute

                        When using custom attributes for profiles, I would like the ability to have a globally defined default value for a custom attribute. This would be overridden by a group-level custom attribute (if specified), otherwise it would inherit from the global value. Finally, if the value could be overridden at the device level should that level of granularity be required.

                        So the order of precedence (from lowest to highest) would be:
                        • Global
                        • Group
                        • Device

                        A use case of this is for password policies. I can create a custom password policy with a custom attribute like {{required_length}} to specify…

                              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.

                                      I would like 2 things:

                                      1-The ability to collapse groups.

                                      2-The ability to organize groups.

                                      • Add macOS account creation DEP options

                                        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)"

                                        Skip is very useful in AD/directory service environments where machines are bound(I'm not part of them), and creating local admin vs local standard user is just nice for flexibility.

                                        • 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…
