Widgets on COPE - MS Intune
Unfortunately there are no settings and/or no chance configure Widgets on COPE in MS Intune. There is specific setting in Intune restrictions config profile to allow/disallow Widgets for BYOD method.
Is this problem tied only MS Intune or is this something for Google?
Majority of our 10k fleet enrolled as COPE and it's a big gap not having widgets available for Work Apps.
You mentioned "fully managed".... Are you using COPE or COBO? Which MDM your using? VMware Workspace One or some other?
If it's available for you with different MDM then I think this is something for the Microsoft make it available in Intune as well.
I don't like that description even it's jused a lot, i know.
I differentiate between "fully managed" (work only) which means that the device is entirely managed/full accessable and owned by the company (we only use this currently) but could be re-enrolled by the enduser if needed and "work profile" which means a fully managed device with a private part and work profile installed (what you call COPE).
I left out BYOD here now, because i think this doesn't matter here.
You may take a look into this: https://vmlabblog.com/2021/04/how-to-add-widgets-for-work-profile-apps/
We are using Soti Mobicontrol and as said, only "fully managed" via Zero-Touch for now.
Thank you for your info. I just did further testing and this is the result for Microsoft Intune:
1. Personally-Owned with Work Profile (BYOD) enrolled = Widgets available for WP apps
2. Corporate-Owned with Work Profile (COPE) enrolled = Widgets NOT available for WP apps
3. Fully Managed (COBO) = Widgets available for apps
I will compose a ticket to MS if they have plans to bring setting available for widgets on Corporate-Owned with Work Profile (COPE) enrolled devices.
Hey, We did a DCR (Design Change Request) to Microsoft to have Widgets available for Work Profile app on devices enrolled as COPE (Corporate-Owned Personally Enabled).
According to Microsoft "DCR is approved and is in the pipeline for future releases, however there is no ETA due to our product group taking and completing the requests based on severity."
I'll keep you posted once there is ETA available or DCR completed and widgets available.
Fantastic to see your DCR got approved and that it's in the pipeline for future releases, thanks so much for the update here @jarmo_akkanen.
Would you mind accepting your last reply as 'Accept as Solution' this way it will highlight it if others are looking for something similar.
