Andrew Taylor  -  May 17, 2022

Welcome, in this post I’m going to look at the Monitor tools in Devices within Intune, an icon I’m sure you’ve all seen, but rarely clicked on: What lies inside these icons I hear you ask, well, it is a wealth of information covering the vast majority of settings within Intune, although it’s a bit...

Andrew Taylor  -  May 12, 2022

Windows 11 has been out a while now and I’m sure most of you have been testing and are nearing the point of looking at deploying to your userbase. As we all know, however, the requirements are a lot stricter than they were for Windows 10 (or even 7) so you may find yourselves needing...

Andrew Taylor  -  May 10, 2022

Greetings one and all. For this post I’m going to review the various options available today for managing Azure AD Joined devices with admin rights.

Intune Group Tags, Scope Tags – What are they and why do I need them?

Andrew Taylor  -  April 26, 2022

Demystifying Intune Custom App Detection Scripts

Andrew Taylor  -  April 19, 2022

I’m sure everyone reading this has deployed many applications within Intune using the win32 format and most likely used an MSI code or a file/registry detection method to monitor for a completed install (and why wouldn’t you, they work perfectly) Sometimes however, you might come across an application which is more tricky to detect, or...

Proactive Remediations 101 – Intune’s hidden secret!

Andrew Taylor  -  April 12, 2022

As I’m sure some of you know, I’m a big fan of Powershell scripting and find most tasks can be done far more quickly with a script than manually.

Andrew Taylor  -  April 11, 2022

Sometimes when working with an Intune environment, I find myself needing to assign all of the policies, apps etc. to a new Azure AD Group (new UAT group, changing from All Users etc.) Currently, this is a VERY manual process, clicking on each in the web portal and then assigning, but thanks to PowerShell and...

Andrew Taylor  -  April 5, 2022

Following on from the previous post on environment backup, how we’re going to look at the users own data. I’m sure we’re all following the 3-2-1 rule for our infrastructure, but what about user data on the device.
