  1. Task Bundles sent for multiple devices

    It will reduce time if I could send a Task Bundle to a group of devices at the same time
    Maybe Select multiple devices at the device screen and the send a task bundel for all of them.
    Now there are 10 posible acction at the device screen but Send a Task Buncle is not on the list

    Already possible through the transfer feature in the task bundle context menu. the admin can select various devices or a device group

  2. EAS Proxy Full Certificate based authentication

    Currently the EAS Proxy only supports validating a certificate in addition to username and password. But we need full certificate based authentication with Exchange 2013.
    Our users must use Smartcards for logon and dont have the posibillity to provide a user/password combination to Exchange. Full CBA support is the only option for this.

    The EAS Proxy supports two modes. The Powershell mode enforces the connection not as a gateway but by communicating with Exchange to allow or block devices. In this mode, the certificate based authentication is done directly against Exchange.
    Please switch to this option to enable your scenario.

  6. Location Compliance

    It is VERY frustrating that the SMC application can indicate that the device is out of compliance, deny access to email only DURING THE ENROLLMENT process, show the non-compliant status in daily email notifications post-enrollment, but cannot utilize that information to control the access to email.

  8. Remote SMC-App Sync

    It would be useful, if an administrator could push an smc-app sync remote to the devices, although the app isnt running or opened.

    If SMC requests a device sync, it is also send to the SMC apps. Unfortunately the OS do optimize for battery runtime and sometimes kill our app or put them in deep sleep, so it is not delivered. There is little we can do in this case

  9. Bio-metric/patern unlock (Android) device

    iPhones imitate the bio-metrics/pattern as being a pin code (as far as I know at this moment). In Android this is more secure and the bio-metrics and pattern are a separate method of authentication. Connecting to Exchange (with Samsung standard mail client) I only have two options left for authenticating, namely PIN and password. Fingerprint and pattern are not accepted anymore.

    Some of my users are already asking for the fingerprint authentication and I have to disappoint them. They get more upset when they hear that iPhones can use the fingerprint, they dont care about more/less security but ease of…

  10. Syncronisation only Calandar, Tasks and Contact in Android Profiles

    It should be possible that can be accurately determined, which can be syncronsiert. Thus, calendar and contacts could be synced, but not the e-mails.

    In the Windows profile that is possible.

    With SMC 6.0, the admin can configure, which part of Exchange Server should be synced via multiple checkboxes

  11. Copy device policies

    It should be possible to copy an existing device policy into a new one with all settings of the original.

  12. Disabling Apps

    It should be possible to disable apps which are not uninstall able.
    AppTec360 can do this.
    If certain apps are on a blacklist, then they are also disabled and can no longer be found in the menu. Once the MDM Agent is uninstalled, the apps are also available again. So it also has a "clean" app list.

  13. Roaming alerts

    When a mobile goes outside its country it starts to use data roaming, which is much more expensive. Some customers need to create alerts to know if the user is using data roaming or even better, to create a limit of data roaming and send alerts if that limit has been exceed.

    Roaming is a compliance rule and can be monitored. The admin can create a task bundle to inform the user to do other stuff

    Already possible with SMC 5.1. The Password pattern ca be set to any, which allows Fingerprint and Screen Lock.
    Please note, that FP is regarded as a 3 digit pin and screen pattern even less secure.
    It might also happen, that the exchange settings do override the MDM settings

    This is already implemented. The mail is delivers to the admins and the technical contact (for the SaaS solution).
    The mail will be send 30, 14, 7 and 1 days before the cert expires

    This is already possible. Go to apps > your platform and select transform from the context menu of a profile. You will see all devices of this platform. An admin can switch to device groups at this point or run a filter to reduce it to the list required

  17. Device description should be included under the devices in SMC 5.0

    Client advised that in all previous SMC version, they found device description under devices which was very helpful. Therefore, this feature must be included back in SMC 5.0 as it provided information that is usefull

    Did not receive any feedback on my question for more details – Close the request as part of the maintenance

  18. Automatic whitelisting of currently installed Apps - App "Lockdown"

    It would be great if SMC would provide the possibility to automatically whitelist all installed applications of a device. All installed Apps would then be added to a specified compliance rule, This would simply the initial configuration of the Whitelisting feature.

    Exporting a device apps into a CSV and reimporting this as an app group is possible and would create the initial whitelist

  19. Base-Policy for several devicegroups

    It would be helpful, if theres a option to create a basepolicy which can be used to create policies for other devicegroups.
