    • More noticeable push-notification

      Currently, It's only possible to send a push-notification to a smartphone, that is showed in the notificationbar. Maybe It's possible to implement the ability to send a push-notification as a messagebox, which requires interaction of the user.

              • Android: Protect SMC client from being uninstalled

                Sophos Samsung Plugin is well protected from being uninstalled by the user (can not be unticked from within the device admin menu). Is there a chance to carry this protection over to the SMC client?

                • Protect MS Surface Pro with SMC

                  At present it is not possible to protect Microsoft Surface Pro devices with Sophos Mobile Control. The request is to allow these to be brought under
                  the SMC boundary allowing, in particular, ActiveSync to work via the Sophos Active Sync proxy. Active Sync is used by the native Mail application to talk to Microsoft Exchange

                    • Allow Multiple "password types" in password policies

                      Especially for Android as it works more or less fine as is for IOS.

                      Android you can only set "Any" password type which does mean a password is required BUT it only supports pattern, password or PIN. Android uses want Finger prints enabled also.
                      Also using Any means you cannot set any other policies such as the ever important lockout period or idle time etc.What is the point of setting a password if the user can set it to only require one after 1 hour?

                      When specifying a password type. You cannot select multiple methods. notwithstanding the issue with no…

                              I want to see some more columns under Inventory / Devices. The columns should be selectable from the Fields I can see under Deviceproperties. For me it's essential to see the Batterylevel of all Devices. The columns should be sortable (low to high or vice versa). Or I need to see for e.g. the wifi macaddress.

                                When I enroll a bulk of 30 new iPads with the apple configurator I have 2 big disappointments. One is that I have to choose the country, the language, confirm the configuration via my MDM-Server and accept some texts and then I can start over. 6 klicks per Device.
                                Then I find the new iPad in my Sophos Mobile Control but the name is not the name I have given to the device but some strange construction of serial number and whatever. Please: Just give the device the name I've given to it via the apple configurator. I have to…

                                        • Find a way to sensible shorten the filenames in SME

                                          With corporate documents, you upload corporate documents and make it available in SME. For docs with longer file names, the names might be shorted to a point, where they are no longer sensemaking.
                                          Please implement a way to shorten in a reasonable way and/or to show the full name per user action
