Ability to select another user in the Exchange profile
As of now we can only push an Exchange profile base on the user account linked to the device.
Since multiple users has more then one eMail account, I think it would be really useful to be able to select a different user when configuring an Exchange profile.
When having a lot of users that has more then 1 account with different domain, I don't think making one Exchange profile per user/per domain is really the best way to go.
Here is my idea, and I don't think it would be that difficult to implement.
A simple RADIO BUTTON
- Use default user (user linked to the device)
- Use another user (Drop-down List of available users for selection)
That way the %EMAILADDRESS% would be taken from the selected user instead of only the one linked to the device.
In my case, I have around 20 users that works for a few of our divisions and thus as multiple email accounts. (1 for each other domain/division)
Sophos Mobile allows to push multiple email accounts. The account name and email address can be any user property from the AD entry. Please use the respective placeholder to do so.
Would this be sufficient?

Hi Thomas, I understand that but in this case I'm talking a different AD account.
1 users with multiple mailboxes (AD accounts)
Francois Collerette ->
firstname.lastname@example.org (primary mailboxe)
This works fine, my problem is when I want to add another mailboxe.
email@example.com (other mailboxe)
Since Sophos Mobile binded with the AD account of "firstname.lastname@example.org" .. I cannot dynamically add the second account since it's from a different AD user.
Hope this explains it better.
