      • Intune email alert to admins on user device enrollment

        Provide ability to create email alert to admins when a user enrolls a new device in Intune. This will allow admins to be notified and then make sure the device has been added to the proper Intune policies. It will also allow for security tracking on new devices that are being added to the environment for accessing Office 365.

          Changing status to Noted since Heena is a PM on the team. Also, bumping her question so it will go out to supporters:

          Can you please elaborate on how Admins plan to target policies to these devices? Will they do user targeting or device targeting? If user targeting, can they target these policies to the user group prior to any devices being enrolled?

        • Allow installs to be repaired

          Too often it seems that "one or more agents are not installed properly" on my client computers. The client computers don't seem to be aware of this though, as trying to install the software on them reports that the software is already installed.

          It would be nice to be able to "repair" an install of Intune without having to go through the whole process of uninstalling and re-installing the agents.

          • Add device name and linked user to malware email notification

            You have got to add the ability to send an email every time a user gets malware. The email needs to have the Computer name and Linked User in it. Right now I can only see the Malware name.

            • Provide an Operations Manager management pack for Intune

              Provide an Operations Manager management pack for Intune. The inability to provide any Operations Manager monitoring for Intune is a significant gap in the Microsoft story and directly opposed to the stated direction that Microsoft will have a management pack for all products. The cloud based solutions need to be able to be monitored!

                It’s been a while since I worked on a management pack – I wrote the docs for the SMS 2003 MP – so my memory isn’t all that great. But I’m pretty sure management packs are to tell you what’s happening on your server infrastructure. And with Intune, well, you don’t have any servers; we have all the servers and they are in the cloud. So . . . .what would you be monitoring? I think the problem you are trying to solve is knowing when the service is down, and I think what you’re asking is for the service alerts to show up in the Ops Mgr console, since that’s where you’re already looking for issues. Is that accurate?

                Also, just curious, are you using Intune standalone, or attached to Configuration Manager?

              • MDM mail profile management, no duplicate password prompt/remove app password requirement

                When a mobile device (specifically iPhones tested at this point) is enrolled into 365 MDM, you have the option to control the mail profile on the device.

                When this option is ticked, after enrolling the device through the company portal app, we would expect the mail profile to be complete and require no further interaction from the users.
                This however, is not the case, and the user is prompted for a password from the native mail app on the phone.

                When MFA is not enabled on the account, the standard account password works.
                When MFA is enabled on the account,…

                  Hi, James, I see your comment. I sent you mail out of band using the UserVoice “contact subscribers” feature, but that doesn’t show up in the conversation on the public site. But if you’re having problems reading that mail, here’s what I said:

                  Have you already opened a support case on this? If so, can you reply to this mail with the support case number so I can look at the case notes? If you haven’t opened a case, that’s what I’m going to suggest next, so they can look into what’s happening.

                • Ability to search apps from the store instead of pasteing URL

                  Like some other MDM's it would be helpful if admin could just search the app from the app store (inside intune) and select it. App metadata should be inserted automatically too.

                  • No option to disable hotspotting

                    Data use by employees is a big concern. Our employees currently need managers approval before we turn on hotspotting.

                    I don't see an option to manage hotspotting in InTune. This is definitely something that needs to be added as it can lead to very high cellular bills if employees use it when they aren't supposed to be.

                    • Integrate access to portal in Office 365 Apps menu.

                      When you click in the Office 365 menu box (Top Left) it would be great to have the Intune Company portal as an option.

                        We need clarification :-)

                        First: Are you saying when you click the “waffle” icon in the upper left corner of an O365 app like Mail, Calendar, etc that you would want to see Company Portal listed along with all the other apps? (and yes, we really call it the waffle here.)

                        Second:
                        We have some Intune features built into O365, without you even needing to buy Intune. Let’s call this “Intune Lite” even though we don’t really call it that.
                        We also have a “better together” story with )365 and an Intune subscription. Let’s call that “Intune Full”.
                        Intune Lite can’t deploy apps – you need Intune Full for that.
                        Since the Company Portal is primarily for distributing company apps, would you want it listed if you have only Intune Lite? Or would you want it only if you have Intune Full?

                        Please keep the comments coming!

                      • Simpliy enrollment process - provide better user experience

                        It would be great if we can reduce the steps necessary for enrollment in Intune somehow. Having all this user interaction is not good. Instead of having to confirm various user dialogs it would be great if a user can trigger the enrollment process - e.g. by specifying username and password - and the devices enrolls without a need for the user to confirm anything else.

                          Enrollment is a process that varies widely among platforms and enrollment methods. This suggestion is pretty vague, so I doubt we’d ever be able to call it “complete” – I’d encourage you to spin up more specific feedback on particular elements and move your votes to those. However, I did want to let you know that with the updates we’re releasing the week of Nov 6, we now have:

                          New enrollment status page for Windows 10 enrollments
                          You can now configure a greeting that appears when your users enroll Windows 10 devices. Use the Enrollment Status Screen to configure a custom message and a hyperlink to be displayed to your end users when they enroll their Windows 10 devices. The Enrollment Status Screen will also give end users a view into the progress of policy settings that are being applied to their device.
                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/whats-new

                          Hopefully you can make the experience…

                        • When adding an app you need to download an attachment

                          When adding an app it triggers a download that you have to open to get the upload wizard. That is problem one.

                          Problem two is that every time you finish adding an app, the window closes and if you want to add another app you have to download and open the same file every time.

                          Solution: figure out a way to not have an extra download and to add an option for "save and new" so the window doesn't close if you want to add multiple apps.

                          Very annoying to have to continuously reopen that window.

                            Asked around on this one and confirmed, we have to have the separate app to upload other apps for security reasons. But it shouldn’t have to download the new app every time, just when there’s been a version change.

                            If you are using Chrome or Firefox, I’ve been told downloading every time is the default behavior, but you can download the setup.exe and save it, to launch when needed.

                            If you use IE, it’s supposed to launch off the locally stored cache.

                            It’s definitely on our list of things we know are painful for customers.

                            • Microsoft Certified Trainers(MCT) should have easier access to Intune while teaching classess that demo Intune

                              I was asked by Intune support to post here. I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer that teaches the 20697-2 Windows 10 course. That course has a lot of Intune content. The course calls for teaching Azure, Office 365 and Intune. There is more Intune material in the course than any of the other cloud topics. As an MCT it is pretty easy to get access to Azure and Office 365, but VERY difficult to get access to Intune without having to go through support. And even after getting access, it is only for 30 days. Which means that when I…

                                Hi, John, I totally hear you. I was an MCT before I came here, back in the old days of newsgroups – maybe we ran into each other in the virtual cafe. I’ve had conversations with the training group, and with the engineering group about the overall difficulty of labbing in the cloud environment. It’s not just the subscriptions, though that definitely a pain point. It’s also being able to reset to a clean environment without having to build it all from scratch every time. I don’t have anything to report, but know that I bring it up every chance I get.

                                Title says it all.

                                Runnign Windows 10 enterprise latest build, fully updated.

                                Just downloaded Silverlight and installed it again to ensure it was up to date.

                                Still getting the error that states you must have Silverlight installed.

                                Come on guys.....this is silly.

                                  Yup. Edge decided not to support Silverlight. Intune admin console still uses Silverlight. We’re working on a change but nothing to report yet. I’d merge this into “replace Silverlight with HTML version” but you’re already a supporter for that one in the Ideas forum.

                                    We understand that having full UI would be preferable, but the reality is this is the best we could do with the time and resources we had. We know that importing and exporting would also be better, and we’d like to do that when we get a chance. In the short term, it was important to get something, even though it’s not ideal. On the plus side, it’s now possible to copy and paste the URI paths instead of manually typing them in. We’ll watch this one and see how much traction it gets with the rest of the community – having lots of votes definitely gets more attention.

                                    • Task to reset local Windows user password to default

                                      It would be very useful, if we could send a task to a device (like reboot the device), to reset the password of a pre-defined local user. It should be possible to define the user (e.g. Administrator) and the password.

                                      • Control roaming possibility on per app basis

                                        Microsoft Intune should at minimal level allow policies controlling use of roaming. Depending on what is technically possible one of the following would alone enable the business case for implementing MDM

                                        - Control what apps are allowed to use data with Roaming
                                        - Control max-data transfer allowed with Roaming

                                          To confirm, are you talking about roaming like when your cellular service is charging you more? Windows Phone already has data sense.. Are you asking for policies to control that on WinPhone? I don’t know about iOS or Android – do they have anything similar that you want control of, or is it a concept that doesn’t exist for them?
