This post from Joost Gelijsteen gives an excellent set of instructions on deploying a Windows 365 machine via Intune, something I personally am eager to test!


This post from Damien Van Robaeys uses PowerShell and MS Graph (two of my favourite tools) to grab BSOD error codes from a device to help with remote troubleshooting

The next post is from Rudy Ooms on the different ways of deploying M365 apps during autopilot. Well worth a read for everyone using Autopilot.


This next post from Florian Salzmann shows how to add a webhook into an application deployment script to display the output into Teams. For anyone managing multiple deployments at any one time, being able to see the output quickly and in one place it’s life-changing!


I’m sure by now you will have heard of Windows Autopatch, but if you’ve somehow missed it, here is the official word from Microsoft on it.

Next up is an excellent post from Anoop Nair comparing the different Windows patching methods. If you are still using any on-prem patching tools, it’s well worth a read.

And finally for this week, we have a post from Jitesh Kumar explaining the Bulk Device Actions tooling built in to Intune. With support for up to 100 devices, these will cover smaller estates without a need for custom MS Graph scripts and commands.
