I’ve tested most of the “features or Mobile Device Settings or policies” mentioned in the following table on Windows Phone 8.1. This post is continuation of my previous post”List of Unsupported Platforms in Intune plus SCCM 2012 Mobile Device Policy Settings“. In this post, I’m going to provide the list of (Intune + SCCM 2012) policy settings that will work on Windows Phone. This list of supported policy settings for Windows Phone will get changed every now and then as loads of new features are getting added (every month) to standalone Microsoft Intune and to hybrid scenarios (Intune + SCCM 2012). So please DO check the CI wizard or Technet article for Supported platform vs Features. I would recommend to check SCCM Configuration Item wizard.
Apart from the list of supported policies or settings, this post would also be act as “How To” guide to disable/enable features/settings on Mobile devices. We need to follow same steps which I mentioned in “How to Disable Copy Paste in Windows Phone Using SCCM 2012 and Intune” post. Note that you need to select respective “Mobile Device Setting Group” and Policies/Settings to disable respective features. I’ve deployed all Mobile Device Setting groups to Windows Phone 8.1 (physical device Lumia 530) to get the below results as I’ve shown in the screen captures of Windows Phone 8.1 mobile.
In the following screenshot, I’ve selected all the Device Settings Groups and policies available in SCCM (ConfigMgr 2012) + Inutne hybrid scenario.
