ability to have the device to check in with their locations on interval times and track the location. so there is a location report or history of the device has been.

The upcoming Mobile 9.5 release will support this with a dedicated report and the ability to trigger locate via a multi-selection in the device list.
The locate capability on the device depends strongly on the selected management mode. Please make sure you select the right one.
Our clients want to see the function of the device movement track. Healthy for the battery life doesn't matter, because typically devices have wired power connection.
Really important - user can't disable geo-tracking.

I don not have any doubt ,that your product is smooth,but i have one concern that our customer always ask about live tacker of devices in real time.One of our customer lenskart is looking for this features and they really need this.Please let us know is this features comes in future or not.how we can achieve this requirement always raised by customer.
If you think,now we can only track last location of devices and every time,we have to create new task for location tracking,that is very manually and takes lots of effort to do this task.
Technologies is all about comfort ,that reduces human effort.
Please reply on this ASAP
Also this report should be able to show locations for multiple devices at the last reported location. With number of devices exceeding 500 , it is nearly impossible to go to each device to check the last reported location on Central Sophos Dashboard
Was pretty shocked this isn't a standard feature..

These Feature is a must if we want to compete in the MDM market. So I would recommend that in order to be competitive get this feature out as soon as possible. I have lost some business because of the lack of this feature in our product.
Scott Roberts commented
Yes, please. This to me is almost a given with an MDM solution.

For US based companies - this would be a great feature. I'm not sure why this hasn't been implemented sooner to be honest.
Howard Griffith commented
This is a must for us and I imagine others would love to have this. Getting a current location only works if the phone is 'on network'. Having a location history would not only be good for knowing the last location, but for those who have personnel or HR issues, this would be invaluable information.
