Hi All

Are there any Device Compliance / Configuration settings capture templates etc available?

Or is it just case of either putting all Device Compliance / Configuration settings into a spreadsheet and confirming with clients what they want etc. Or showing them the settings in the Portal?

I'm trying to make this process less tedious and not have to go through every single setting, if it can be avoided.

Info appreciated

Hey @Stuart King,

 

I wouldn't go through all settings, never. This is exactly the kind of approach I've seen in the past with GPOs and that lead most of the customers to set thousand of settings. End result was they couldn't manage it and generated a lot of compatibility issues and later on nobody really knew why something was set. The key word here is light management and focus on the settings what is really important like security.

As a first start for security settings I would use the Security Baseline and then re-configure it to the customer needs. Then talk about productivity tools they are going to use and then discuss what is needed with them. Like OneDrive for Business Known Folder Move. Typically you want to talk also about some corporate branding stuff like logon background images for example. New technology, new strategies and new possibilities.

 

best,

Oliver
