As of the week of August 27, you can use a template to control how the machine will be automatically named. So not exactly static, but gets you away from total random. From the discussion, sounds like not total random was good enough for some, but not all, so I will switch this back to “noted”.
more detail about what we released in August:
When you create an autopilot deployment profile, you can designate a name, which must be 15 characters or less, and can contain letters, numbers, and hyphens. Names can’t be all numbers. Use the SERIAL macro to add a hardware-specific serial number. Alternatively, use the RAND:x macro to add a random string of numbers, where x equals the number of digits to add.
It’s only available with the Windows Insider build for now.
For us, static is a requirement, the machine name is used as a 'friendly name' for our asset management.
For now, I meet this requirement using a powershell that contains the pairs of serial # and computernames and is deployed using Intune's device configuration, http://blog.therookie.nl/2018/02/enforcing-computername-using-intune-powershell/
Yes please !
In lieu of this functionality, I've written a simple PowerShell script that fixes this ;)
As of the week of Nov 26, 2018, you can choose which apps are tracked on the enrollment status page. Until these apps are installed, the user can’t use the device.
Does that give you what you want?SteffanH shared this idea ·
Thanks, @Nathan. If there’s consensus that Known Folder Move meets the requirements of this request, I can call it “started”
“We are working to integrate the ADMX/ADML packages KFM with Windows Intune later this year.”
It would be great if KFM also allowed configuration of which of the Known Folders to move.
In our environment we, for example, do not sync the Desktop or Downloads folder
An update on this – this feature in flight but we are going to take a bit more time before we make it publicly available. Should be early in 2020. Thanks for your patience!
You can deploy AirPrint settings for Mac and iOS – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/air-print-settings-ios-macos
You can configure some printer settings under device restrictions for Windows 10 – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/device-restrictions-windows-10
But I’m hearing from a few people that this still doesn’t really help users get to local printers, and that seems the original intent. (@Henrik, if you’re getting this, please weigh in!)
We won’t call this one complete. I’m switching this to “noted”, meaning we know you want it. Thanks again for the feedback!
