Intune Newsletter – 19th January 2024

Welcome to what is a special newsletter for me as today is the day my book is finally released after many months of hard work. If you want to learn all about automating Intune, you can find links to it here:

Community Content

We start this weeks community content with a script and thorough instructions from Simon Skotheimsvik on how to create and use Group tags with devices enrolled using offline JSON

Next, Mattias Melkersen Kalvåg shows how to deploy M365 apps packaged as Win32 in a way to make sure the deployed app is always the latest version

If you want better control over when your devices restart after an update, this script from Ľuboš Nikolíni will prove very useful!

The discovered apps functionality is a useful way to inventory your devices. Peter van der Woude drills into it more to look at how it works

Next, Steven Weiner demonstrates how to set a lockscreen on your Windows pro licensed devices

We have a second video from Steve, this one showing how to get started with Log Analytics which is in my opinion, must have knowledge when looking at reporting (and something I need to brush up more on)

We also have the next episode of Steve’s podcast, this time joined by Jesse Weimer looking at custom reporting with Graph

We now have two videos from Chander Mani Pandey, the first of which shows how to use logic apps to export Intune reports into SharePoint
