The last weeks I had time to play a little bit more with Windows Autopilot especially White-Glove and the Companion App example from Microsoft.
First of all, one of the bad things is, that the app is not published to an Store. But I hope I can change that in the future. At the moment you can download the APK, MSIX and APPX from Github. Additionally, I have extended the app to include more functionality:
I added more spaces and rearranged especially the Device page and hide per default not used properties like GUID’s. This should simplify the navigation through the app.
Manage Group Memberships
Initially Intune introduced Device Categories to assign different Configurations per device, but most of the customers rely on Azure AD groups. Therefore I added the possibility to add a Autopilot device to a AAD group.
This simplifies device ordering process by not relying on the device manufacturer setting the correct order id or group tags.
Added User Search
When assigning a user to a Autopilot device in the example app, you have to scroll through all of your users. With a big directory, this is nearly not possible.
I added a search box and only request the users which match this pattern.
Allowing to press the Enter key to start Device Search.
Questions and feedbacks are welcome.
