      Since this has a lot of moving parts we’d like to get more detail on this.
      1) • Do you want end users to be able to access corporate email only through Outlook app on iOS/Android/Windows10?
      2) • Do they want to block all email access from any other 3rd party or native mail clients on mobile devices?
      3) • Once the Intune mail profile goes down to the device – do you want to block the user from creating any manual profiles?

    • Contacts in Local Phone

      The Team of Intune and Outlook did a great job but we believe that there are still some limitations to overcome:
      - We need the capability to sync determined objects to local OS native apps/phone without limitations, like Contacts through Outlook for iOS. Outlook for iOS, for example, is a good application that provides mail and calendar features. However, since the contacts are not synced to the native OS phone, calls/SMS are not recognized.
      - We know we can use ActiveSync for contacts, however, in case of MAM, we wouldn´t allow ActiveSync in our mobile devices.

        • Support for deploying App-V packages

          Right now people have to use the MSI packages generated by the App-V sequencer, rather than having native handling for the .AppV package format as SCCM does. This means that people have to resort to powershell scripting, or squeezing scripts into MST transforms in order to use App-V features such as custom configuration files or connection groups.

          Also the MSI packages are very unreliable since they were mainly created for test scenarios rather than live deployments - for example they fail to uninstall when an application is in use, and you have to remove the previous version manually before installing…

          • Sync Exchange contacts with local device contacts

            To allow the use of SMS and caller ID,contacts contained within the Exchange ActiveSync contacts configuration needs to be accessible to the local device, the ability to configure a profile to just allow the synchronizing of contact or the export of contacts from the outlook managed app to the device is necessary. Email access cannot be allowed outside of the managed apps.

                • add ability to view log files

                  Troubleshooting Intune is frustrating because admins can't see what is happening in the cloud. It would be easier if we could see detailed logs.

                  • REST API to upload packages to Intune instead of web browser

                    As of now, it seems not possible to upload apps/packages to Intune, using sth other than your web browser (I am not talking about the horrible Silverlight-based Intune Software uploader, which has no place in this world in 2017...).

                    We use automated tools in our company to build or rebuild 3rd party packages and test them, and also to package our own home-made apps. Reliying on a "human" to only upload MSI files or similar, to Intune is just not scalable at all and error-prone.

                    Please offer a REST API to upload apps/packages from "customers local repos" to your "mmcswdb01.blob.core.windows.net"-like…

                      I checked with our apps guys, and they say you can do this using the Graph API. If you’re specifically asking for REST, the answer would be to use Graph, so I’d mark this declined. If you’re OK with using Graph, I can call this “we already have this”. Will Graph do what you need?

                    • Push encrypted content to device

                      Hi. Like as AirWatch has Secure Content Locker, please add this same ability for an organization to push out content (new, updated) to a user's device(s) and computers. There should be additional parameters, like length of time the content will be on the device until it is automatically deleted. Additionally, the content should be encrypted, and decrypted in memory when accessed (unlike AirWatch on none iOS devices). File types include PDFs, Word documents, MP3 files, and so on.

                      In looking at OneDrive, I don't see this functionality, or this functionality integrated with InTune. So I am submitting this feature request.

                      • intune mam user status report detail

                        Intune MAM User Status needs a detail report to list which users are included in the graph. Would like to know which users have 'no policy' and why - is it an OS restriction or a policy deployment failure or an unsupported app?

                              I want the ability to block updating to the newest iOS version. I have users who don't listen when I send out an email blast to not update their devices but I still get users who either don't read or just ignore the email. I want the ability to set the highest version that I want available and to disable updating to the newest version until I release it. Same type of deal as when I have to approve Windows updates.

                                We always have problems when it comes to updates and mobile phones because unlike desktop OS, the carriers have most of the control and the platform vendor has the rest.

                                What we do offer now is the ability to use Conditional Access to block based on min or max OS version, so if they upgrade (even when you tell them not to) they can be shut out.

                                There’s a brief reference in this blog post to releasing it in hybrid, https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/microsoftintune/2016/01/06/coming-soon-support-for-new-windows-10-features-apple-vpp-for-business-and-more/ and standalone went live in the latest updates.

                                What do you think – would you call this complete based on having some admin control, or would you hold out for the PC-like experience of blocking updates, even if it’s something that would have to come from someplace other than Intune?

                              • Manage iOS updates via MDM

                                Manage iOS updates via MDM. Apple has supported managing iOS operating system updates since iOS9 was released. Please add this functionality to Intune. Without the ability to manage the iOS updates we have no way to ensure devices are kept up to date and are adequately secured with the latest iOS security and bug fixes.

                                • 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.

                                    As of today, there's no option for admins to view the currently installed apps on devices. only the ones that were installed via Intune. black\white listing doesn't really help because they are only after users has enrolled their devices. everything that happens before the enrollment doesn't show up.
                                    this area requires an improvement

                                      I’m moving this into ideas, since it’s something that doesn’t exist and could be considered. but one of the problems we run into is whether or not the operating system will let us tell what apps are installed. The OS can consider that privileged information and it may not let the management service know what is installed outside it’s sphere.

                                      Then there’s whether the OS will let us actually prohibit an app as opposed to just telling you which devices have apps you’ve blacklisted. We work very closely with the manufacturers of the mobile OSs – we can ask, beg, tell them how much it hurts users – but at the end of the day, the OS manufacturer still makes the final call.

                                      (This includes Windows and Windows Phone, by the way – even though we are “One Microsoft”, we are still different groups and priorities can vary when it…

                                      • Configure lock screen/wallpaper on iOS devices at enrollment (as per Configurator)

                                        In Apple Configurator, part of the enrollment profile is the ability to set options for the lock screen such as what information is displayed, and set a lockscreen wallpaper. In a school environment, being able to display the device name and brand the lock screen with a custom background would be increadibly useful, and this currently is not able to be done via InTune/ConfigMgr.

                                        Add this functionality please.

                                        • Option to deploy Office 365 desktop applications with Intune

                                          Deploying the click-to-run Office 365 applications via Intune is a pain. Please add predefined deployment packages to the Intune console that just need to be assigned to target users/computers

                                            Today we released support for assigning Office 365 ProPlus apps to devices that run Windows 10. Does that count as “adding predefined deployment packages”? Or is there something we’re missing here? If you think we covered it, I’ll mark it complete.
