A well researched wish! Thanks for making the suggestion, it certainly is a feature we will consider the next time we review our list of macOS asks.

We're trying to get our heads around the whole DEP/MDM deployment workflow and this is the first stumbling block we've hit. Once we have an account on the computer we can start to run other packages to get our software installed and remote access.
