Microsoft Intune Room for Improvement

The generic answer to what can be improved is that I hope that the reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.

In the past, I raised some tickets for the enhancement feature, which was missing in Intune. It can take a long time for these features to appear, or maybe they will just never happen.

There are certain things that I'm trying to replicate from AirWatch, and it's not possible.

In AirWatch, we have a launcher, which is like a container. You can choose single-app mode or multi-app mode. But in Intune, for example, you need to factory reset the device and then apply the MDM. If we choose multi-app mode, which is the kiosk multi-app mode in Intune, I cannot lock the application on the screen. For example, in the set mode, you have the option to set the leave Kiosk password. You can exit the kiosk. But if you choose Intune multi-app mode, you don't have this leave kiosk option. For us, it's very useful.

If you have this leave kiosk option in the multi-app, you should also have it in the single-app mode. We need this because we have an application that you run on a tablet in hotel rooms, and we want to lock the application in a single-app mode, but besides the application, we also need to have some background applications running, like we need to do some configurations in Knox from Samsung, and eFolder. 

We have three applications that we need to push, but the guests will only be able to see one. Because I don't have the option to leave the kiosk in the single-app mode, I cannot do any configuration in the background apps. We have one app we cannot migrate to Intune from AirWatch because of this issue. This applies to more than 2,000 devices.

I think we need the leave Kiosk option available for the Kiosk single-app mode, because we are stuck with at least 2,000 devices or more because we want to completely retire AirWatch, but we cannot until this feature is available. The applications that we are using in our hotel rooms are not compatible with Intune. My bosses are not really satisfied because we still have expenses with purchasing a license with AirWatch because Intune cannot really fulfill our requirements.

This option is already available in the multi-app mode. It should not be a new feature. This feature already exists. They just need to apply the single-app mode the same way they're applying the multi-app mode.

Regarding mobile devices, Intune is good, but there are other services that I would say are ahead of Intune from an administration and reporting point of view. These are a few things that could be improved from a mobile infrastructure point of view.

From a reporting point of view, it could use some work. If I need to push a profile, it's a challenge with Intune because first I have to go ahead, remove a user, then add him back; only then does it allow me to push or sync. If it synchronizes, it exits on a cloud-based synchronization time. With AirWatch, there is a function where you can push a profile directly on a device. 

Overall, Intune has improved from MDM. They have become EMM and now they're moving towards Unified Endpoint Manager. They're just beginning to compete in the market from a mobile point of view, but regarding Windows, they're great.

There needs to be more support for Mac operating systems. Support for patching, because we have very few, or minimal options from Intune for patching Mac operating system.

In the next release, I would like to see better compatibility for Mac operating systems — that would be really helpful. Also, if the support for Mac was as flexible as it is for Windows, that would be really appreciated.

Intune, in their port description, for me is still pretty infantile. I will say in the next 18 months to two years, they'll start becoming a bit more major, I hope.

It's pretty straightforward to implement as long as you've got a Microsoft subscription. However, it's kind-of convoluted how they explain it and what you are paying for. Obviously, we know that the more money you pay, the more features you get. I think that they can lay it out a little bit better, sometimes it's pretty hard to follow what their offering actually is.

There's quite a lot of development that they can do within their Intune dashboard. I think there are too many lines hyperlinked to move you around. Others, in contrast, give you a simple dashboard and an intuitive administrative walkthrough.

The solution looks too technical. Even though it is a technical feature, it comes across as too technical to navigate through. They can certainly work on the overall dashboad and the layout, to simplify everything.

They can do a lot more with Enterprise Firmware over here to give it full support.

Coming from a Samsung perspective, they need to comprehensively support the Android provisioning methods.

There are a lot of small use cases where we realized that some technical solution was missing in Microsoft in comparison to other products. For example, it lacks something similar to sensing or location-based rules and configurations.

We would like, for example, integrated remote control or a remote session tool or something like this. You must have TeamViewer and the integration with this is limited and it's extra money. Nothing is built-in. Some functionalities are really limited to fully managed devices and so on. It took a long time for them to integrate the big ECS infrastructure into the corporate devices. This is now done, however, it took a longer time than expected.

Technical support could be h=better.

If you need some restrictions or some integrations or you need integrations with security options, or if your mobile terminals are industry-special or ruggerized, bar code readers, printers attached, this might not be the best option. If your MDM has to be really specific, perhaps Intune is not the better option. You have to consider MobileIron or Workspace ONE or MaaS360 or similar.

They need to integrate more with security options. When the customers want some specific security functionality they begin to think about other platforms.

Microsoft really needs to improve the reporting in Intune. It doesn't come anywhere close to VMware Workspace when it comes to their reports. I am sure that Microsoft will improve but at the moment, they are underperforming in terms of reporting.

There is a feature called dynamic groups, which populates users and computers based on a query that is written, and it runs at some interval. I would like to see this updated more frequently so that the users don't have to fair for too long before computers appear in the group.

I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now. Although it can run in 64-bit mode, I would like to see this supported natively.

Its configuration is fairly complicated. You have to do quite a bit of discovery to be able to deploy it for a customer. You have to ask them a lot of questions. So, its initial deployment is the biggest challenge. They should make it easier to deploy with the use of Wizards or something else. During the deployment stage, there could be profiles for the customers who are particularly wanting to use certain feature sets of Intune.

There are some enrollment features that could be improved, possibly some other tools that do almost the same job with alternative ways to enroll the device. Intune doesn't have those features. Additionally, I think they could try to invest more on macOS devices making it more manageable, and making the management more accurate. A solution like Jamf, for example, gives you the greatest capability - more capability on management, on policy enforcement, wiping devices, locking devices, and many other things. This is the main reason I'm not using Intune for all the contractors now and the reason we're planning to have Jamf implemented at the beginning of 2021.

If they could improve the support on the macOS devices, it would be great. Then we wouldn't need to buy Jamf. I'm not sure it's possible because of the relationship the enterprise has with Apple, but if they could improve the macOS management, that would be great.

In terms of what can be improved, I am looking for better enhancements regarding Apple management, not only on the mobile device, but also on the laptop.

Other than that, it already has good capability with Windows, and it is already very good for the mobile device. The only area that is missing is for the Mac products.

The documentation about the custom image setup could be better. Although Microsoft provides the steps to configure Intune or set up or deploy Intune, it doesn't have much information related to custom images. 

If you ask, "how can we deploy the custom image?" There is no information. The steps they mention ask you to connect to your on-premises environment or create your own image on the cloud itself once there is connectivity. But I needed to go to multiple websites to get all this information. I had to figure out how to upload the custom image if you want to use the on-premise custom image for Cloud PC. If you have the proper subscription, you must have the right access, like global admin or owner. Then you can add your custom image to that. There are no steps mentioned over there.

Microsoft Intune doesn't have Chrome browser support. I would like to have that support because they will want it if we pitch the product to clients.

There could be some more security without compromising productivity. They could provide some advisories that alert you as to whether the device is secure or not. They need to be able to show us if there is something malicious happening or not. It would be really nice to have something there that could protect us from malicious activities or ransomware. 

I'd like more reports and KPIs available. We'd like these to be visible so users can be assured their devices are secure. 

The initial setup is a little bit complex.

One big problem with Microsoft is that they're changing the names of the products quite often, or they're quite consistently doing so. Intune is now Endpoint administration. Constantly switching the user interface or the administrative interface makes it quite hard to keep pace. If you are on a two-week holiday and you come back and look at the same screen you have looked at for the last couple of months, it looks different, which is annoying. Changing things around all the time doesn't make it easy.

There are some elements where the integration isn't finalized. So, for some of the things, you use the user interface, meaning the administrative website, and for some of the things, you have to use PowerShell to make changes, and it's not quite clear why you have to do things at one point this way and at the other point that way. If they could improve that a little bit more, it would be a good thing.

Other than that, functionality-wise, it, more or less, serves our purpose. I'm not really sure what I would wish more at the moment.

It would be better if Microsoft can reduce the cost of the license. as we know the Intune device subscription is licensed per device at a cost of $2 a month. but for the best to enhanced security and feature we must added add-on license or buy/upgrade to bundling license such as M365E5.

The reports that are generated aren't so great. They don't give a lot of meaning so far, but that could be down to user knowledge than the actual reporting side of things. I'm not a big user of it, but I was a bigger user of MaaS360, and we used to be able to run weekly and monthly reports. In the case of any deviations. we'd get a warning immediately. That's not so easy to do or to get in place for Intune. This could be just a user issue, but when I compare both, that's the only thing that's lacking for me.

The most important thing is reporting. They should improve their reporting. They should give a free hand to users. In SCCM, I can create my own reports. For example, in SCCM, I can create an inventory report for my PC or for all PCs, but in Intune, we don't have an option to create any report. Microsoft claims that Intune is a successor of SCCM, but SCCM is more powerful than Intune. So, they should develop Intune more and make it equivalent to SCCM. Then, their product will be great in the market.

If I want to deploy an application, I cannot add multiple schedules. I can add only one schedule, and I need to rely on that. Adding multiple schedules over a period of time is not possible at this time.

I cannot evaluate any setting before deploying anything. In SCCM, we have the Compliance Baseline feature. If I want to check any service or anything else, I can do that, but in Intune, that is not available. There are very few compliance policies. They say whether your device is compliant or not, but if they don't provide enough and better compliance policies, why should I be compliant with those policies? They should give more options for the compliance policies so that we can choose something better, and we can make our devices comply with those policies. 

It lacks in terms of analytics. Analytics and all such things are not good, which again comes down to the reporting part. It should be better in terms of analytics and reporting. 

It also lacks in terms of automation. If we want to automate some of the things, we need to spend more time on automation. Other tools in the market are giving better automation graphically. So, they can work on that part.

Their support should also be improved. They don't know about their own product.

It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.

In terms of some of the reporting, I find that it takes too long for some of the reports to display actual data.

We haven't really gone through all the features of Intune. We are just discovering them. Every day, we see a new feature that we want to apply, but what will be great for Intune is to be able to deploy apps in a simple fashion. We should be able to easily install various apps on the Windows platform, iOS, and Android. Currently, we have to write some scripts. It's not as straightforward as we would like it to be. It should be simplified so that we can do it just with three clicks—next, next, finish—without needing to write a script.

Solution Lead Engineer at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

There are many things that could be improved in Microsoft. Reporting and troubleshooting for the application deployment could be better. It's very difficult to understand. 

It's also very difficult to monitor where exactly the error is and the kind of scripting we're trying to deploy. PowerShell scripting is even getting a delay compared to other applications or policies. Usually if we deploy the configuration profile, there is an immediate sync and it will be applied to the devices, but it's not happening on PowerShell. This is an apparent option for PowerShell that is not working properly, so that again needs to be rectified. The reporting is a major drawback in Microsoft in Intune. They're not properly reported on the console.

I expect Microsoft Intune to have more features in the cloud because there are two major functionalities that we need to be added. This is software metering and license management. These functionalities, for now, must be on-premise. For this purpose, we have set up a SQL Server and I hope that in near future this option will be in the cloud in Microsoft Intune.

Ayesha Imtiaz - PeerSpot reviewer

They need to add more group policies. I know that they are already working on it, but this is something that I would like them to do quicker. Intune currently does not have many group policies that you can deploy. It is quite limited in terms of group policies. For example, if I want to disable the password manager on my browser, I can get support in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Edge, but not with Firefox. It would be ideal if they can add some of these things.

Its reporting, which is very limited at the moment, also needs improvement. I can see basic information, such as how many devices are enrolled, but I can't get customized information. It will be great if they can add report customization.

Its stability needs to be improved. Sometimes, when you register a device in Intune, it doesn't show up instantly on the engine portal on the admin side. There are sync issues between the admin side and the user side.

They need to provide better support for complicated issues. They also have a long turnaround time for resolution in regards to overall escalation.

There is improvement needed in integrating with the installed Office solutions versions, such as Office 2019. The Office 365 integrates fine. 

While using the solution, you have to test and validate a lot. This is not really a solution issue but more of a configuration issue but still worthy of noting.

We have experienced an issue while deploying a Windows 10 machine, once you get the user profile applications installed, it does not always integrate well with third-party multi-factor authentication solutions. This is something that can be improved in the future.

This type of question may be premature because we have just started rolling it out now. We have not had a chance to work with it to capacity at this stage. I think, so far the implementation is all a bit shaky and should be better planned and better supported. The deployment seems to not be as simple as what I would have hoped that it would be considering it is a Microsoft product.  

When it is fully rolled out, we will see where the other shortcomings actually are. However, this difficulty in rolling the product out is a significant stumbling block.

What it lacks in terms of content management, is the addition of a few more features. When it comes to new or updated devices, I believe Microsoft is still falling short. It lacks the features necessary to integrate these types of devices, such as handheld added devices, which are commonly used in the eCommerce industry. For example, RF guns are used for scanning. They are commonly used to scan eCommerce packages, which Microsoft Intune needs.

Intune is behind the game, but it has been catching up in terms of the capabilities and features that it now has to offer.

Mobile security needs to be improved.

There should be more focus on mobile device security and integration.

I see room for improvement with respect to China and Android devices. If we get Intune for China for the Android devices, it would really be a win-win situation. The devices we are using to manage devices in China are partial MDM and not complete MDM.

China blocks Google and Google Play Store, which makes installation challenging. Microsoft Intune is a company software, which has to be installed to the app portal or Microsoft Software Center.

With barcoded scanners, it works really well in countries where Google is not blocked, but again, it's a challenge when we have to install Microsoft Intune where Google is blocked.

It just doesn't handle software updates well at all by itself. You need to be a scripting wizard to make those happen properly, or you use third-party tools. The Windows feature updates are very difficult to implement.

Mostly the pricing can be improved. If you are using the solution with EMS E3, then it's very expensive, but if you are using it in combination with a lot of products, then it can be cheap. Microsoft doesn't sell Intune separately. That's another consideration. The third thing would be how to view the use case because Microsoft doesn't release any documentation on how to view it when you adopt Microsoft EMS. 

Their technical support could also be improved.

That is subjective because I haven't used anything other than Intune for MDM and MAM. We were fairly satisfied, I would say, but there are always a few things that our customers mention, such as this was simple.

Compatibility is another point raised by the customer. Microsoft is always a little behind when it comes to compatibility.  For example, Microsoft does not support Linux. or, any other platforms offered by other vendors.

The remote screen support and remote assistance were two features that we greatly missed in Intune. According to our customers who use Workspace ONE, it is available. For example, you can get remote assistance for an iPhone, which is somewhat reliant on a third-party solution, for Microsoft. We were not able to do that for testing purposes, we faced some challenges. We had to purchase an additional subscription from Teams Viewer.

Microsoft Intune lacks the ability to provide seamless remote assistance or remote control.

The biggest improvement could be in the implementation, the ease of the implementation of it. They should make it easier to order it, however, that's generally true for everything from Microsoft.

I'd love to be licensed in Microsoft. I'm trying to do that, however, I can't find a training program that will fit with my schedule. Everything requires you to be on-site for a week, as opposed to on-demand training. A big improvement would be having some on-demand training that is quality and not just a sales pitch.

Currently, for a new customer or when a device refresh occurs, I can introduce Microsoft Intune as a unified endpoint management solution. However, for an existing customer who has an SCCM it would need to be upgraded to an MECM first before I can introduce Microsoft Intune.

Microsoft even recommends it as a co-management solution because even if I need to go for UVM as a unified endpoint, I need to rebuild all the missions, which is not practical. So, they need to look into it and provide an easy and flexible moment to UEM.

The enrollment in Microsoft Intune is based on user accounts and not devices. It can be different to maintain different profiles for the same user. It cannot work together with other solutions. For example, if you have a normal user having a mobile phone, and they also have a tablet that they use that is managed from another MDM solution, such as Airwatch, the two can not cooperate if you are using the same Microsoft account on those two devices. They need to allow enrolment through the device IDs.

The closest Microsoft Intune can be to GPOs, the better. There needs to be more granularity on application deployments. However, they have done better recently with the application deployments.

The main disadvantage seen today is regarding Linux clients. We have a lot of development resources that have Linux on their clients, and we can't manage them on the same platform, as we do with other clients such as macOS and Windows. So, it should have support for Linux clients. It should also have better support for macOS.

There can be some added features, such as an improved dashboard. Any new feature that could be a benefit to our customers would be good.

Team Lead Information Security Control at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees

There are differences in protecting the data on a mobile device and on iOS. When you protect the data on iOS, you protect the entire device.

From an Android, you can select certain applications to protect. What this means is that the employee who uses Android devices are protected only from emails, and the personal data on the device is not protected. When the employee uses the iOS they control all of the devices, which is not convenient.

There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.

They can improve their MAM policies a little bit more and make them more granular. They should include more granular group policies. They are there, but they need to be more granular.

Its stability should also be improved. It is not very stable. Sometimes, it shows some inconsistencies across tenants.

The user interface should be improved because it is a little bit slow.

It does not have support for containerization.

There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.

There is no option to do end-to-end macOS management. The second thing is that the actions or policies don't get applied immediately, so there should be much faster way of implementing the policies. If you wanted to implement some actions on the device, it doesn't happen very quickly. 

I'd also add more flexibility with the mobile device management part of it. At the moment, it's very limited compared to other MDM providers, so there should be more options.

It's a developing product, so there's lots of room for improvement. There's a lot of stuff we couldn't do because Google and Apple prevent you from doing a lot of the stuff you'd like to do. 

Microsoft documentation is a bit hard to get around, so having more control over devices would be good.

The major problem with this product is that there can be delays in the deployment of new policies.

The configuration and pricing can be improved. It would also be better to meet with people in the country and teach us how to manage personal information because we will not look at or touch any personal information. They should teach us about managing personal information and make it really easy for us.

I find the solution quite old school with not many features. Managing devices is a little complex when they are not Microsoft projects. Additional features I'd like to see would include Wi-Fi and network security.
