    • Select modeled apps in Applications tab for Windows 10 VPN profile

      This is a DCR proposed by a customer through a different channel that I'm porting here. The description provided is: "The current VPN Profile Applications tab [for Windows 10 VPN profiles] currently only allows an application file path and extension or a package family name for a universal app. It would be nice if there were an option to point to a list of modeled Applications in Configmgr that you could select. That way the Applications can be bound to currently managed Applications in ConfigMgr"

      If this is important to you, please vote this up!

      • Export functionality for user data/profile, remote connection profile, and company resource access features

        This is a DCR from one of our MVPs. The ask is for the same export feature that exists for configuration baselines and configuration items be available for:
        * User data/profiles
        * Remote connection profiles
        * Company resource access profiles, such as:
        - * VPN profiles
        - * Wi-Fi profiles
        - * Email profiles
        - * Certificate profiles

        The MVP also states that, "the history is important for auditing purposes as well as rollback in case of non-authorized changes.

        If this is important to you, please vote this up!

        • Unified Write Filter - Filter status visible in console

          It would be extremely useful, especially for customers in the Education sector to be able to see if a write filter is currently enabled or disabled on a machine through the configmgr console. There may be hardware inventory methods to do this but it wouldn't be close enough to real time to not cause confusion.
          Additionally, it would be very useful to be able to send a command to enable or disable the write filter via a right click menu (applied at next reboot or forced reboot).

            • Group Like items for IOS and Android under a Mobile Device Management Section

              Items such as "Application Management Policies" and "App Configuration Policies" and other items that are related to Mobile devices should be placed more appropriately within the console under a sections called Mobile Device Management, not just thrown in the root of Application Management as they do not apply to all systems. Alternatively, they could be named better, such as "Mobile Application Management Policies" and "Mobile App Configuration Policies"

                  • Fallback Mobile Device Management with the Hybrid Solution

                    The ability to manage the Mobile devices from both the SCCM and Intune web portal ie.. with both the agent active or using one agent for both the purpose (EX: laptop or windows 10 ),if an user is working from a remote location and occasionally connects to office or VPN n/w ,instead of calling that user for the n/w connectivity to protect from vulnerabilites for SCEP and Windows updates or Applications deployment ... if a dual management is possible then would be an idle job for the administrator and organizations as the security threat has been minimized as the machine…

                    • Ability to enrol "on behalf of" a user

                      One of the biggest challenges we have when enrolling devices in the SCCM/Intune hybrid environment is not having the ability to enrol devices on behalf of a normal end user. It would be great if a role could be created to allow an IT support person to use the Company Portal app to enrol a device in Intune on behalf of a user. This would enable the device policies, configurations etc.. to be downloaded on the device and then the device would immediately be ready for the end-user when they collect it from IT.

                      • Full phone number on Samsung Devices is not displayed

                        When I click on a Company Own Samsung mobile device profile the phone number has the first 6 digits as asterisks.

                        This causes a major issue with reporting.

                        There should be no reason the phone number should be hidden. It's not a private piece of information. If you are having your phone joined and managed through InTune, as the administrator, I should be able to know the full phone number of that device so I can actually call the user if there is an issue with their device.

                        • Intune Secure Browser - settings required to manage home page etc..

                          We are missing Application Management Policies to allow you to set the home page, set bookmarks, return to home page after *** seconds, encrypt cookies, clear cookies and history if idle, caching, setting kiosk mode. The current application management settings are far too lightweight to be a viable option in most environments.

                          • Mac OS X client

                            Please release SDK for OS X integration into Configuration Manager if no extra support for OS X software deployment and management is going to be added. It would be helpful for the community if we had an ability to modify source code or utilize an SDK for both the OS X client and integration to the console so developers could add features that fit different environments.

Please update the stored procedures \ functions to assure that when a mobile device is enrolled or the hardware inventory is pulled and stored in the DEVICE_COMPUTERSYSTEM_DATA table that the data is also copied to the EAS table the Phone Number…

                              • Reset of Android mobile phone Factory Reset Protection (FPR) within SCCM/Intune

                                Google have added Factory Reset Protection (FPR) to their Android platform of Lollipop 5.1.1 onwards. If a reset request is sent to the mobile phone from SCCM, it does reset the phone but now the phone thinks it is an unauthorised reset and the FPR is now active. You need to now know the Google account detals which may not always be available.
                                Would it be possible for SCCM/Intune to have in its reset proccedure the deactivation of the FPR as doing a reset from a Corporate enviroment is really an authorised reset.

                                    • Be able to send an SMS text to ConfigMgr hybrid Intune devices

                                      So at least one competitor has the capability to send txt messages directly to managed devices from the administrator. This is useful to be able to draw users attention to changes in policy coming or asking them to upgrade iOS versions, upcoming maintenance of Intune etc. It would be great if we could send a message directly from the CM2012 console to a single device or an entire collection of devices. it doesn't have to be 2 way communication, just a way of sending admin alerts to end users. SMS texts tend to be more immediate in nature and draw…

                                      • Find device for mobile Windows 10 clients

                                        Now that Windows 10 contains a find my device feature for mobile devices.... I hope that SCCM will support it in upcoming release.

                                        Hopefully this can be accomplished now that Windows 10 devices can be Azure AD joined.

                                        • Device Categories feedback on why it is largely unusable

                                          The device categorisation feature as introduced in v1606 in principle is a great idea only it has a couple of major flaws in implementation that make it in practical terms largely unusable in a production environment:

As it currently stands, it seems that there is no way to get devices to automatically choose a category without offering the choice to the user at enrolment time. Which is kind of what we would want for most people much of the time. Sure you want to have the choice for some users but also for ease and simplicity of use in…
