Mac Profiles Suggestions
The ability to manage Mac Profiles was added in version 6.4 but I would like to suggest a few improvements:
1. Ability to view the uploaded .mobileconfig file - Once the file is uploaded to the appliance there is no way to view the file that I can see. It would be great if I could view the file to see what it is setting.
- Notes - Add a notes field to each profile so that technicians can indicate what the profile manages.

In addition to these two I will now add:
3. Ability to perform an advanced search in the inventory for installed profiles.
4. Re-work how profiles are managed and distributed to be more like Managed Installs. The issue with using the scripting engine is that I can't always guarantee when machines will be on when the script is scheduled to run. A managed install works better for configuration management because it will check for the desired state during each check-in instead of running on a given schedule.
