  1. Disable power on password for android phones

    Disable the boot pin from being set. Due to the power on pin and the lock screen passwords are not sync'd (password rest in MDM will only change the screen lock). If the user does not change the power on pin or has forgets it, then the phone has to be cleared down and rebuilt.

  2. Enable single apps blocked by global android system apps setting

    Currently it is possible to hide undeletable apps preinstalled by the vendor by deactivating system apps in the global settings fpr Android phones. Unfortunately you can't activate single apps later, these apps remain hidden and also can't be reinstalled from Google Play.
    It would be very useful to have the possibility to activate single apps which have been blocked by the system apps setting.

  3. automatic updates for apps (android)

    In Sophos Mobile 8.6 its is possible to update IOS apps automatically devices. As noted in the feature request

    https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/143212-sophos-mobile/suggestions/34599766-automatic-update-for-apps-ios

    We would like to be able to do this in Android.

    Getting 100s of users to upgrade apps is really difficult.

    We would really appreciate all your votes.

  4. iOS 13 User Enrollment

    Implement the new user enrollment feature, which allows better integration of BYOB devices in the Apple world. This would bring it on par with the Android Enterprise Profile Owner feature...

  5. Assign apps in Android Enterprise App Store to device groups

    Currently, all Android Enterprise approved apps are available to all devices managed by SMC(both in managed Google Domain or Play store mode). Please combine the apps into groups, which will be assigned to devices and device group. Or assign the apps to the device groups directly.
    As a result, each user group sees only the relevant apps for them.

  6. URL shortcut on "desktop"

    Hello Sophos,

    With Sophos mobile control we want deploy an URL shortcut on the "desktop" for Android and iOS devices.

    I see there is an option Webclip in profiles for iOS. Is there something like this for android?

    Thanks in advance!

  7. Multiple Exchange Accounts with Android Enterprise

    please make it possible to rollout multiple exchange accounts with android enterprise.

    With the device profiles it was possible to push more than one profiles with configured exchange accounts in seperate profiles or both in one profile.

    With Android Enterprise, it seems only one is possible. If i click on "add configuration", "Exchange Account" is greyed out.

    When i try to push another profile, my first main profile is getting replaced.

  8. Increase size of Apple ipa file uploads

    Is it possible to increase the limit for upload of Apple ipa files?
    Current limit is set to 200MB, which is not sufficient for lots of iOS applications.

  9. Shared iPad Functionality

    Can you please support and enable "Apple Shared iPad" functionality on Sophos Mobile Central, as described here; https://developer.apple.com/education/shared-ipad

    Allowing different users to log in and share the same iPad, using their Apple account is a key feature in education.

    Most of your competitors in this space support this feature already.

    Thank you

  10. Force iOS device name via profile

    Apple iOS:
    We would like to force specific device names to the mobile phones and tablets based on variables (e.g. "iPhone%SERIALNUMER%" or "iPad%USERNAME%) and these names have to be forced by the server so a user is unable to change it.

    Currently only the the other way round is possible: allow the user to change the name (better said: do not forbid to change the name) and switch SMC server to synchronize the local name.

    Changing the device name (for supervised devices) by the MDM system is supported by Apple so I do not see any problems from…

  12. Allow creating profiles for iPad Home Screens

    This feature has been out for years in other MDMs. We are forced to use other software to create/edit Home Screen layouts and import them into SMC.

    Please add this feature.

  13. Email Synchronisierungszeitraum Exchange Konto

    Es wäre sehr hilfreich wenn das SMC bei der Konfiguration eines Exchange-Kontos für den Sychronisierunszeitraum anstelle dem maximum von 1 Monat auch die in Android vorhandene Option "Alle" anbieten würde. Wir haben hier ca. 60 Geräte damit in der Verwaltung und haben immer wieder Klagen von den Benutzern das man gerne auch mal was in älteren Emails suchen wollen würde, aber man nicht kann weil ja immer die alten EMails so schnell verschwinden.
    Als richtigen Showstopper sehe ich das Setting auch nicht, in Zeiten von Mehrkernprozessoren, mehreren GB Arbeitsspeicher und 128 GB Flashspeicher zum speichern von Daten schafft es ein…

  14. Another Google Play Store Account

    Other MDM-Software like Microsoft Intune has the function to connect another Google Account to the Google Play Store. You can switch between the Work Play Store and your own Play Store to download what you want.

    I wish this this function for Sophos Mobile, because some employees want to install their own apps like Spotify and I don't want to approve every single app from the employees they want.

    Best regards

    Sven Kerakisch

  15. Compliance check for active SIM PIN

    Currently it's not possible to set up a compliance rule to check if the SIM card PIN is active or has been disabled. Please add a new rule for this.

  16. Possibility to manage Samsung Galaxy Store Apps with Sophos Mobile

    On Samsung devices like Galaxy S10 some apps like Samsung calender and Samsung phone are not available as work app in the work profile. In such case you have to install 3rd-party apps or use the samsung phone app of the private profil for incoming and outcoming calls/sms. It would be great to have the option to install and manage Galaxy Store apps via Sophos Mobile.

  18. calender: cross-profile calendar

    "cross-profile calendar
    Your organization doesn't allow private apps to access your work calendar."
    We use Central Mobile Control and I have a Oneplus 6 with Android 10. We testet the work profile option and there is this new option in my settings, we would like to use, but with mobile control there is no way to enable it.
    With this option the user has the possibility to see his work and his private dates in the private calender.
    Please implement the settings for this option on central mobile.

  20. Add a "re-enroll" options for when a user changes phone or the phone simply gets "factory" reset

    Add a "re-enroll" options for when a user changes phone or the phone simply gets "factory" reset.

    It could as simple as generating a new QR code or a "manually inputed" code so we can "re-enroll" the device.
