Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, August 2022 – by Daniel Engberg
I hope you’ve all had a great summer and are feeling rejuvenated! It surprised me how much Microsoft and the community have provided during the summer. I can’t wait for the fall!
This month’s major updates and focus have been Windows 365, with tons of updates from Microsoft and the community.
At Recast, the team recently interviewed Sami Laiho for a new series, Q & A with SysAdmin Superstars. Sami is an 11-time Microsoft MVP in Windows OS and a renowned speaker at tech conferences globally.
See you in September!

Workplace Ninja Summit 2022 (wpninjas.ch) – Monday-Wednesday, September 12-14, 2022 in Luzern, Switzerland
This month, Microsoft released a new version of ConfigMgr, version 2207, with much news from previous technical previews.
For Intune, importing custom ADMX templates is now possible, which is fantastic!
There has also been a lot of focus on Windows 365, with the Endpoint Analytics for Windows 365 going GA.
The last item is that a preview version of Microsoft Dev Box is now available.

Every month, we cover updates to the tools, scripts, and software provided by the major hardware vendors related to enterprise client management. Check out the ConfigMgr Manufacturers page for a complete list of tools, blog posts, and information about the vendors.
** Much of this information is provided directly from the vendor, so when you see “we” think of it as, “Vendor Name,” and not Recast Software.
- Dell Command Update – version 4.6.0, A00

Due to the sheer amount of community content, I have decided only to include one post per contributor, to keep the size of the endpoint management recap down. Great work everyone with providing so much to us for free!
