  1. Find a way to sensible shorten the filenames in SSW

    With corporate documents, you upload corporate documents and make it available in SSW. For docs with longer file names, the names might be shorted to a point, where they are no longer sensemaking.
    Please implement a way to shorten in a reasonable way and/or to show the full name per user action

  2. Report IP Address of Mobile Devices

    Add IP address as one of the device properties visible within Sophos Mobile Control. We would then know if the devices were connected to our internal wifi network or offsite.

  3. It would be beneficial to be able to trace by which Apple ID, the ipad’s are registered with.

    We use Sophos MDM for iPads and androids. We would like a feature where we can trace and ensure that iPads are registered with GEH Email address. This will help in resetting the device if user leaves. Thanks.

  4. Do not autoscan SD cards on boot unless requested

    Every time I boot my device the external SD card is scanned automatically, which is quite annoying as it contains some 55 gigabytes of mp3 files. An option to scan external and/or internal SD cards only on demand would be highly appreciated. Maybe as a notification in the notification bar, "scan now / skip scan".

  6. Show the restrictions, which are applied due to a compliance violation

    If a device gets out of compliance, very common the company applies some automatic restrictions, like blocking email, blocking network access or blocking access to company documents. But this is not shown to the user in the SMC app.
    Please extend the app to show, if those restrictions have been applied this particular device

  7. Disabling Notifications

    On behalf of a customer:

    They would like to remove certain notifications for App-Block.

    Currently one can change the setting for all notifications.

    Settings -->Application Manager ---> Sophos Mobile Control and unchecking the show notifications box.

    Doing so would disable all notifications.

    For an effective App-Block Sophos has already stated a need to ensure that the Process is not killed by a task manager.
    Due to the sticky notification the process needed cannot be killed effectively.

    Another advantage is that the user does not forget about the block.
    E.g.: the blocked app is installed 6 months after the app was…

  8. Streamline App Protection password input when I open a protected app

    Currently, when the App Protection password screen pops up, I have to (1) tap once to bring up the keyboard, (2) type the password, then (3) tap OK to open the protected app. Any way to eliminate (1) and (3) to streamline? I.e., when the App Protection screen pops up, so does the keyboard; when the password is identified as correct--rather than redundantly "OK'ed,"--the app just opens? Two keystrokes eliminated, but it would speed up phone use considerably! Thanks!

  11. Start Activity or Service remotly

    Hi,

    Like Tasker, it would be interesting to configure some actions in profile to start Activity or Service on clients remotly.

    Example: Click on "Start Chrome" on SMC console -> push message to SMC client -> start Chrome via a Intent.

    Thanks in advance,

  12. Enable encypted SMTP for use with Gmail

    A lot of companies are using Gmail for their email solution. Gmail requires a TL S connection over port 465 for SMTP to allow encryption of traffic. There is no option to use TLS in Sophos Mobile Control, which is a feature I think should be added.

  13. Allow 'X' number of Apps per User

    SMC should allow 'X' number of Apps per User. With Exception of the Apps in the Blacklist, alls Apps can be installed.

    For example Setting the maximum number off allowed Apps to 20 will block App Installation once 20 Apps have been installed by the user.

  15. F5 VPN dial on demand support

    Implement a way to enable support for F5 VPN dial on demand within Sophos mdm with domain/host url matching (similar to what is found inside the iPhone configuration utility)

    This option does not seem to be available within the console

  17. Import photos on iOS devices into SSW

    Due to an OS restriction, SSW is not offered as a target in the "Open with..." dialogs in the iOS image viewer app. To support importing images, please provide a solution to import anyway, e.g. by offering the images as an internal storage provider

  18. iOS Supervised Mode Compliance Check

    "Supervised Mode" should be a compliance check in the iOS device policy. If the user is recovering a backup on the iOS device, "Supervised Mode" gets overwritten.

  19. Show the user name besides the MAC address in UTM for non-compliant devices

    Currently, we show only the MAC address, which makes it hard for the admin to resolve issues. Adding the user name, if known, will improve the usability for the admin
