Mar 06, 2014
  1. On the Policies tab, under iOS, click Configurations.
  2. In the New Configuration menu, click Profiles and Settings > Restrictions.
  3. In Restrictions Configuration Creation, on the General tab, enter a name for the policy.
  4. On the Functionality tab, enter the following information:
    Tip: Any option for which you select Allow means that the user can perform the operation or use the feature. For example:
    • Allow use of camera. If selected, the user is able to use the camera on their iOS device. If deselected, the user cannot use the camera on their iOS device.
    • Allow screenshots. If selected, the device user is able to take screen shots on the device. If deselected, the user cannot take screen shots on their iOS device.
    Note: Some of the iOS restrictions options apply only to specific versions of iOS (indicated under the option label), and some options only apply if the device is placed in supervised mode. For example, the ability to allow or block AirDrop is only supported on iOS 7 devices, whereas the ability to allow or block PhotoStream is supported on devices running iOS 5 and later.
  5. On the Functionality tab, enter restrictions you would like to set for iOS devices.
