Assign Intune device category based on users department property

macOS devices enrolled via Apple Business Manager don’t have the option to be enrolled to Intune with a group tag like Windows devices. With a group tag you can create a dynamic device group and then auto assign a scope tag to those devices. So it would be nice to think of something so macOS devices also could be added to a dynamic group and then auto assign a scope tag to those devices. In order to achieve this I created a PowerShell script with Intune Graph to auto assign a (department) category to the macOS Intune managed devices based on the users department property. You can read my post to find out how you can achieve this.

Deploy Microsoft Project and Visio (Click-to-run)

I got a request at work if I could create the deployment of the latest versions (Click-to-run) of Microsoft Visio and Project and set the Monthly update channel. The deployment of the applications should be made available in the Company Portal for users that are a member of the Entra ID synced Active Directory group to which the Visio and or Project Online plan licenses are assigned to.
We still run a 32 bits MS365 Apps on devices so got a mix of 32 bits and 64 bits MS 365 apps. The deployment should automatically detect the MS 365 apps architecture and then install the correct 32 or 64 bits version of Project and / or Visio. In this post I will show you how I did this. I will also provide all the sources and scripts you need to accomplish this.

Change Intune device category with PowerShell and MS Graph Intune module

I tried to find a way to be able to change the category assigned to an Intune device without having to use the Intune portal. I found a lot of information about it and even working scripts. But these scripts didn’t do exactly what I wanted. So I used some scripts and information about PowerShell and the MS Graph Intune module and merged them into my script. Some results I wanted to accomplish were to change an Intune device category by using the device name and the category name not the device ID or category ID. I also build in some checks. I wrote this post about it and I hope you find it useful.

Deploy the Company Portal with Intune

In this post I will show you how to deploy the Company Portal App from the Microsoft Store app (new) with Intune. The company portal is an essential app you should deploy on the devices you want to manage with Intune. With the Company Portal users can securely access their company apps and data, install or reinstall applications, check if the device meets compliancy and more.

You can install the company portal on Windows 10/11, macOS, Android and iOS, but I will cover the Windows deployment in this post.

Setting up Co-management MECM (SCCM) *Part 1*

A lot of company’s are still managing there devices on premise with domain joined devices and with MECM (SCCM). But with the pandemic most employees are working at home on there personal device or on a domain joined mobile device. Managing the domain joined devices that are being used at home is quite challenging. Off course you can deploy your applications and windows update with MECM and an active vpn connection.
But still how often do employees connect with the vpn application? If they don’t the device will become unsecure because of missing windows updates and missing application updates. You want these kind of devices to be updated and managed even without an active vpn connection. To be able to do this we can setup co-management in MECM.
