Custom Terms and Conditions

This week I’m back in ConfigMgr and I’m back with custom Terms and Conditions. A few months ago I did my latest post about custom Terms and Conditions. That post was completely focused on Microsoft Intune standalone. Starting with ConfigMgr 1511 it’s now also possible to deploy custom Terms and Conditions through Microsoft Intune hybrid. Custom Terms and Conditions can be deployed to end-users to explain how device enrollment, access to work resources, and using the Company Portal affects them and their devices. End-users must accept the custom Terms and Conditions before they can use the Company Portal to enroll and access their company data. In this post I’ll show how to create, deploy, update and monitor custom Terms and Conditions in Microsoft Intune hybrid. …

The new ability on iOS devices to send diagnostic information

This week a short blog post about the new ability in the updated Microsoft Intune Company Portal app, for iOS, to send diagnostic information. Before it was always fun to explain somebody the method to get the Company Portal Diagnostic Information, as it would require the end-user to open the Microsoft Intune Company Portal app and simply start shaking the device. Actually, this is still a possibility to get the Company Portal Diagnostic Information. New in the latest update of the Microsoft Intune Company Portal app, for iOS, is the ability to send the Company Portal Diagnostic Information via the menu of the Microsoft Intune Company Portal app. This is a new Microsoft Intune Company Portal app ability and is not related to the iOS …

Multiple custom terms and conditions for device enrollment and company access

And we’re back in the Company Portal app. Not just because I think that the Company Portal app is awesome, but also because there’s a new Company Portal app related capability added, during the August 2015 update, to Microsoft Intune. That new capability is that it’s now possible to deploy multiple custom Terms and Conditions for enrollment and company access. A while ago I did a blog post about Custom terms and conditions for using the Company Portal of Microsoft Intune and this post will be an updated version of that post. However, this post will not go into as much detail about the use of different versions, of a single custom Terms and Conditions, as that part is still applicable in the same manner. …
