When will we be able to control macOS updates (forced, or prevented upgrade to Big Sur) for macOS devices enrolled in Intune?
Autopilot allows device name based on serial numbers using templates like %SERIAL%.
When will this be available for macos ADE ?
Intune ADE enrollment: required app installation it works on High Sierra, Mojave, and Catalina, but not Big Sur. Microsoft Case #: 22986799 has been open since Nov 2020. Is there a resolution in sight? Why are only some customers having this problem?
When will MFA be available during the setup assistant for IOS devices so not to need the guided access mode that causes alot of issues.
One thing I forgot to ask.
Intune ADE macOS enrollment, Native Office M365 install:
after initial enrollment/install, Run one of apps, say Word, and activate office, Help, check for updates: Microsoft AutoUpdate shows 5 updates, over 4Gb.
And, "Automatically keep Microsoft Apps up to date" is unchecked.

What can I do to push the current version of office, rather than this old version that needs to be updated? And configure Microsoft AutoUpdate by default to "Automatically keep Microsoft Apps up to date" ?

Thanks,
Ed
