Nicolas PilonConsole, Intune, SCCMLeave a Comment

This month, SCCM 1610 was released with a bunch of new features, including exiting Intune features. One of these Intune feature is to send sync request directly from the SCCM console. It’s a new remote actions that Intune administrators will use daily. For example, you can send sync request to a mobile device that is having deployment or client health issue. In fact, each mobile devices managed by Intune need to communicate with Intune to get the latest policy and compliance state. Normally, the Intune client synchronizes every 6 hours for iOS and 8 hours for Android. Additionally, there’s a scan every 15 minutes in the first 6 hours of enrollment. The mobile device can be synchronized as well from the Company Portal application. Take note that Send Sync Request is unavailable for the moment in Intune standalone. Maybe one day!
