MAM Policy 'Allow data transfer MAM Policy enabled' is not allowing dialing from Outlook
When the MAM policy Allow App to Transfer data to other apps: is set to 'Policy Managed Apps' it disrupts the ability for phone numbers or meeting conference to be dialed. When it attempts to pass this data to the dialer a error message comes up that IT group only allows content from this app to open in other managed apps. Disabling this policy allows it to function but then exposes data to other application that would be a potential security risk.
It appears to me that its a all or nothing with dialing from Outlook when MAM policy is set to managed apps only. This has been a bit of a show stopper for us. Microsoft please address this for those who are used to dialing from calendar as it makes life so much easier.
A few posters have agreed that this UserVoice item is complete with the availability of data transfer exemptions for iOS and Android.
Thanks so much! Please go use your votes for other things you want to see!
Agree this is now possible via Protocol Exemptions.
I believe this has been resolved with the "Exemption" feature within the MAM policy - Android: com.android.phone - Native phone app; IOS: tel; telprompt
See this link for iOS: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/app-protection-policy-settings-ios#data-transfer-exemptions
This is a real pain for us too. and not just in Outlook but other MS Office365 mobile apps, e.g. Yammer.
Experiencing the same behaviour on Android phones having enabled 'Prevent any sharing across boundaries' and not configuring copy/paste. Doesn't affect iOS devices though.
Any updates on that topic? or untouched since longer than a year?
This is a significant burden for us as well. We have lots of users complaining about this lack of functionality. Users want to be able to call someone at a number listed in Outlook, while we still ensure they cannot take data out of the policy managed apps.
Please resolve. It's forced us to allow data to be removed from policy managed apps until there is a fix. Seems like a basic feature.
