Force Application/Policy Updates
I need to be able to force application and configuration updates on devices, and not wait for the timers. Even through a "Sync" button was put in place, it still doesn't seem to invoke any immediate update to the devices.
Since all of our devices are supervised and we control apps via VPP, if for some reason they don't get an app update, I have to either set the app to uninstall for the group and then reinstall, or reset the device (and then wait for the device to reconfigure).
A "Install Now" button that will immediately go out to the device and push the install.
A "Force Policy Update" button which will immediately go out to the device and update it's configuration/compliance policies.
I would like this feature when application show status "Failed" and it is indeed not installed, while the package is installing fine on other devices.

Even worse in Android Work profile as users can't even delete the app and reinstall required apps from the Work App Store as those required ones aren't showing. I miss AirWatch.
Agreed! This is a major flaw when dealing with individual devices in a group.
