Pretty surprising this is still not available.
This is one of my biggest complaints, plus since you have to go to the group first, how are you supposed to add a specific device if you have 50 of them named “iphone”?
This really isn't something MS needs to fix with Intune, you can already use Intune to do this. Just block the app store using the blacklist, we had this issue too until we changed to blocking the appstore via the blacklist. Once only blocked through blacklist all installed apps will stay up to date, assuming you have Automatic Download - Updates setup.
Here's the code for it:
The ability to do this, if implemented as the requester stated, might be problematic for corporate owned device environments, and should be optional and configurable for admins if it were. Such as if for some reason this advances beyond users just being able to change the device's "nickname". If the user was able to change the actual device name simply through the Intune app it will make it potentially harder to identify in the Intune admin console and assuming corporate owned, users would have access to veer away from corporate standards on their own. Almost like if you allowed users to change their Windows computer name on their domain joined computer which would be a huge no no.
I can confirm that we have this on our plan for early in 2020/ Thanks for your patience!
This would be a great feature for us. Our 2nd level technicians do not need full access to everything in the Intune console, but it would be nice to be able to give them access to the retire/wipe feature as they are the ones that have first hand knowledge of when this needs to be performed on a device and responsibilities to make sure that happens.
As of the Oct 2018 release, when a device is not compliant, you can create an action on the compliance policy that locks the device remotely. This is supported on iOS, as well as Android, MacOS, Win10 Mobile, and WinPhone 8.1 and later.
Does that get you want you need or is there something else still missing?Anonymous shared this idea ·
