Show user dialog with Endpoint Analytics (Smartphone Replacement Tool)

It is not always easy to reach users via email or other channels. When there are projects running to exchange e.g. smartphones or migrations from files from a network drive to an SharePoint it is hard reach the users and get an answer. Intune provides with Endpoint Analytics a very good on board tool to easily reach users via a user dialog. In this blog I will show how you can use this with the example of a smartphone exchange. The dialog and the method can be adapted to many other use cases.

Check Autopilot enrollment prerequisite

Everyone who has enrolled a few devices with autopilot in his life and has encountered errors knows the problem that it can quickly be very cumbersome to find the problem why an enrolment fails. Especially when it comes to network endpoints that are not reachable it can be very time consuming to find them. To enroll a device with autopilot there are also some prerequisites that have to be fulfilled. To check this before the enrollment I have created a script that helps you to check these requirements.

Get teams notification for the Top5 apps with installation errors

It is always important as an Intune admin to have an overview of the environment. Intune offers a lot of reports but as we all know you don’t look into them every day. Isn’t it easier to get a daily or weekly message in Teams and see the top failed app installation. I have already released some blogs with the topic of detecting anomalies in Intune with the help of cognitive services. In this blog I want to show you how to send a report that is already available in Intune to Teams using Azure Automation.

Change Windows 11 Context Menu with Intune

Windows 11 has brought some changes to the Windows Explorer, including the way the context menu looks. By default, the context menu is reduced to the really necessary functions. This is sufficient for most users. However, if you often need functions that are not in the reduced view, then this can be a hindrance in the workflow. In this blog I want to show you how to get back the Windows 10 context menu with the help of Intune.

If you follow my blog, you know that there are two things I really like: helping people with their problems, and automating or simplifying processes.

Use Endpoint Analytics to clean up the disk

I have already written several blog posts about endpoint analytics. In the Microsoft Tech Community the question came up how to clean up the disk using Intune. This is a question that is difficult to answer generically as it is always very specific. Through more and more applications and data moving to the cloud and the storage is also becoming cheaper and cheaper, the amount of storage needed on a workplace devices and the problems with full hard disks are no longer as present as in the past.

In this blog I will show you how to free up disk space on your clients with an high disk usage. So let’s get started.

A default set on assignment Filter

In one of my posts I have explain how you can create an apply assignment filters. Is a very powerful feature to refine the assignment of group. For example, you can assign a config profile to all devices and apply a filter to apply the config profile only on Windows 11 devices within the group. To make it easier for you to start with filters I wrote a script which creates a default set of filters.

Sync Azure AD Group with Kiosk Config Profile

I have already described in a previous blog how to deploy a device as a kiosk device using Intune. This actually works really well. There is only one small thing that is really inconvenient. If Azure AD user or group is selected as logon type (only specific users are allowed to logon on this devices), this policy must not only be assigned to a group, but also the allowed user must be defined in the profile. The option also allows to add AAD users and groups and the SIDs of these objects are also written to the local group but Windows cannot resolve the AAD groups (bug or feature?). The resolution of whether the user who is trying to log in is in one of the groups is done by Windows via Graph when MFA is disabled. it will also work. But if MFA is enabled windows fails to get the token. In this blog I want to show you how you can easily work around this by syncing an Azure AD group with this configuration profile.

Intune Tool Box – Rebuild of Intune in PowerShell

I think everyone who works with Intune on a daily basis knows the situation that they would like to have a simple feature that would simplify their daily work. In order to close exactly this gaps I decide to code my own tool with many small features that would make the life for Intune admins easier. This was the birth of the Intune Tool Box. This tool is a WPF application that is written in PowerShell. The app has the same design as Intune but offers small helpers for the daily work. The good thing is that this app is built in such a way that it can be easily extended at any time. If you have any features in your mind that you are missing in Intune console but is possible to solve this via graph so let me know that I can add this to the app. My plan is to develop the app step by step and bring in new cool features.
