Useful W365 Cloud PC Intune Filters
Microsoft MVP Mike Terrill has written a great blog post about useful Windows 365 Cloud PC filters.
The Microsoft Intune Team has been busy at work releasing new features. One of those features that was released in the Service release 2301 was the ability to create filters based on the device’s Azure AD Join Type (aka deviceTrustType).
