Feature request: force some security settings on Business accounts

We are currently deploying 1Password across our company, and I'd find it useful for owners to be able to force some settings for all employees, such as auto-lock settings, ssh-agent settings, the use of Windows Hello, etc. I understand that "Policies" don't currently govern the local settings of 1Password apps, but in the context of a business use, I think it would make sense to do so! Currently, the only solution is to write down a list of "best-practice / required settings", and hope that everyone will follow it (this is both fragile, and inconvenient for all employees to go through all settings).

(I also understand that a given 1Password app can connect to multiple accounts, incl. personal ones in addition to the business one; and that some settings would apply across the entire application. If we consider this is not ok, one could imagine that the client would make it possible for users to opt-out the automatic application of company settings, and this would only be flagged as such in the admin UI; at least this would cover the majority of use cases.)

I found similar requests that have been closed previously:

    Would MDM better fit your needs? About mobile device management Thank you for the examples. I'll get this before the team on your behalf.

    Thanks @ag_tommy. IIUC, MDM is for iOS and Mac. In our case, the most important uses will be to secure the use of 1Password (1) under Windows (pro devices, but with no "group") and (2) for users' personal smartphones (BYOD...) connected to the 1Password Business account. We cannot control any setting on those personal smartphones, but to me, it still makes sense to have this level of control for the 1Password app (Windows, Android, iOS) from the 1Password admin dashboard since this is about the use of 1Password connected to the business account.

    I would like to add +1 here; that is one of the longest parts of the initial setting for some of our employees at branch locations, where they have multiple computers they switch to.
    Having more settings that we could either default or force them to would make the initial setup much easier.
