What’s new in Intune – release 2004

What’s new in Intune – release 2004

Another blog post in my what is new Intune release 2004 series! Don’t forget that I have a strong focus on Windows 10 management and won’t be touching the Android/iOS/macOS updates a lot.

You can find the ‘What’s new in Intune’ page here.

The most interesting parts for me about the 2004:


1. Group targeting support for Customization pane

You can target the settings in the Customization pane to user groups. To find these settings in Intune, navigate to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center, select Tenant administration > Customization.

Added value here for me is when you are doing implementations for Enterprise organisations. It could be nice to have more branding depending which department gets targeted.


2. All devices page column entry changes

On the All devices page, the entries for the Managed by column have changed:

  • Intune is now displayed instead of MDM
  • Co-managed is now displayed instead of MDM/ConfigMgr Agent

The export values are unchanged.


3. Trusted Platform Manager (TPM) Version information now on Device Hardware page

You can now see the TPM version number on a device’s hardware page (Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center > Devices > choose a device > Hardware > look under System enclosure).

Great new feature!


4. Microsoft Edge security baseline is now Generally Available

A new version of the Microsoft Edge security baseline is now available, and is released as generally available (GA). The previous Edge baseline was in Preview. The new baseline version is April 2020 (Edge version 80 and later).

With the release of this new baseline, you’ll no longer be able to create profiles based on the previous baseline versions, but you can continue to use profiles you created with those versions. You can also choose to update your existing profiles to use the latest baseline version.

More info coming soon, the new Edge baseline is still rolling out…


5. Microsoft Endpoint Manager tenant attach: Device sync and device actions

Microsoft Endpoint Manager is bringing together Configuration Manager and Intune into a single console. Starting in Configuration Manager version 2002, you can upload your Configuration Manager devices to the cloud service and take actions on them in the admin center. For more information, see Microsoft Endpoint Manager tenant attach: Device sync and device actions.


6. Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus rename

Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus is being renamed to Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise. To learn more, see Name change for Office 365 ProPlus. In the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center, you can find the apps suite by selecting Apps > Windows > Add.

The new name will appear in Version 2004 onwards, starting on April 21, 2020.


I’ll update the what’s new Intune release 2004 blog post weekly with the newly released features!
