Intune Newsletter – 29th December 2023

Welcome to the final newsletter of 2023, I managed to squeeze in one more in the downtime between Christmas and 2024 as there is still content coming from this incredible community!

We also have a second post from Michael looking at the community versions of get-windowsautopilotinfo and the associated module

Next, we have two posts from Gowdhaman Karthikeyan, the first supercharges WUfB reporting to filter based on scope tags

The second post from Gowdhaman covers optimizing dynamic group membership rules

We now have two videos from Steven Weiner showing how to enrol Windows devices into Defender for Endpoint and then moving onto devices running macOS

Steve has also recorded the third part of the podcast, this one looks at Microsoft Graph with Logan Lautt

As mentioned by Michael above, this video from Johan Arwidmark‘s ConfigMas 2023 (it’s worth checking them all out too) looks at using autopilot for existing devices and the fixed region functionality
