Microsoft Intune isn't perfect, but over the last two years it's evolved to solve so many time-consuming challenges for IT pros.
In my first level support days, my customers experienced many Android-related issues, that today, can be resolved by simply enroling the device in Intune.
I remember one of the marketing team members couldn't see his calendar on his Samsung phone's mail app. If he had come to me today, I wouldn't have even bothered with troubleshooting. I'd just enrol his phone into Intune and install a pre-configured selection of apps onto his phone.
And that brings me to my favourite thing about Intune, avoiding the marketing team (they spend enough time hassling me about webinars as it is 😅).
How to configure and package applications in Microsoft Intune.
Application packaging is a lifesaver when you want to deliver a consistent experience to your organisation-owned mobile phone users.
Here's how you do it:
- Select your app: Log-in to the managed play portal in Microsoft Intune.
- Approve the app: Not sure what I can write here it's in the description... 😆
- Assign the user group: When assigning the apps, you can make it either a mandatory install for all registered users or you can make it available for them to download as people want. After that all you need to do is push out to your list of registered devices.
- Presto! Your app is configured and packaged.
Videos are way more fun.
