  2. App Update Restriction Settings

    Within the restrictions settings it would be great to be able to restrict app updates to Wi-Fi only.... at the moment this can't be done meaning my mobile data roaming bills are rather large!

  4. certificate

    On PC and Macs there should be an option to filter out the alerts so that

    The event generated is ->
    Event::Endpoint::Smc::RenewInstalledCertificate::2

    is disabled. This will prevent being bombarded by alerts about local machine generated by RDP sessions expiring.

  6. Make initial enrollment of Sophos Mobile Control easier

    Let the enduser go to a website with their mobile device and here find a direct link to the Mobile Control app.
    The website must only have a header and to pictures: Apple and Android logo with a direct link to Mobile Control app at the relevant appstore.
    The website must be smartphone and tablet friendly.
    And anvanced version would detect itself which device is entering the website and only show the relevant link.
    Se: www.awagent.com on a mobile device.
    This small feature would make it much easier to do the enrollment. Naturally the URL must be asy to remember: …

  8. Exchange iPhone profiles allow for synchronization of Notes

    If I were to configure Exchange manually on the iPhone, I have the option to synchronize Notes. When I setup the Exchange account within Sophos Central, it only synchronizes Mail, Contacts, Calendars and Reminders. Notes is not shown.

  10. Secure Boot activation by policy setting

    According to Support the "force encryption" setting in the restrictions policy doesn't work with Android releases later than 5.0, due to something Google changed around that time.

    Samsung devices have a "Secure Boot" option, which can be manually set.
    With all the KNOX integration going on, please give us the option to activate Secure Boot from within Sophos Mobile.

  11. Suppress popup messages

    My users are forever complaining about the endless popups that appear on their phones (from Upday, battery saver, etc etc) it would be great to have a setting to turn off all popup notifications - or even better the ability to remove spam apps like upday alltogether!

  13. Bluetooth-Support for Android Enterprise: "Profile Owner Mode"

    Please add a policy for android-enterprise in "profil owner mode" to activate bluetooth global in Workspace.
    This function exist currently in all device profiles but not in "Profil owner mode".
    If you will do something very crazy, you could bluetooth allow only for a app-group! ;-)
    Best Regards

  15. SMC App - reset function to delete MDM profile and settings

    When face the following issue when a colleague gets his iOS device exchanged.

    Normally they just backup the old iOS device and restore this iOS backup on the new device. Unfortunately iOS backups are like images, which means that it doesn't only install the new apps on the iOS device but also their configurations.

    This means in case of the SMC app that it has the old pairing to our MDM system but doesn't really work because its not the old iOS device anymore.

    The workaround is to delete the SMC app which came with the restore and install it…

  16. Devices extended app filter "version" and Edit iOS app "version" is inconsistent

    In "Edit iOS app" it is possible to set a string for "Version" of an app. That is confusing with the CFBundleShortVersionString of the ipa read from app binary, which is used as "Version" in the devices extended app filter.

  17. More detailed app info

    Many very important details of an app are currently missing in the "Edit iOS app" view, especially for an enterprise app which was uploaded as a binary:

    1.) App version: CFBundleShortVersionString and CFBundleVersion
    2.) App signature expiration (when does the app stop working because the certificate used for code signing expired).
    pp" by "identifier" and "version" in the devices view. But there it is confusing what version

  18. Stop certain apps from auto updating (iOS VPP managed)

    In Sophos Mobile 8.6 you can auto update iOS VPP managed apps automatically. We manage a large estate and would like the option for de-selecting certains apps from automatically updating so we can properly test the apps before pushing them out globally.

  19. Export of contacts - finetuning

    We are using the PIM Container and permitting the enduser to export contacts: but only first name and company name.

    1. Could you add an " @ " between firstname and companyname?

    2. We have several employers called Peter, which gives us 4 contacts in the native app: "Peter Comm2IG"...could you make it possible to add the first letter of the surname: Peter L. @ COMM2IG ?

  20. Ability to add an App to Sophos Control directly from the installed apps list of a device

    Think it would be useful to be able to add an app to Sophos central from the installed apps list of an existing device.
