How can we improve Azure Active Directory?

Eliminate the 15 device CAP on Azure enrollment by a single O365 admin account

There is a 15 device CAP on Azure enrollment by a single O365 admin account. There is a program through Intune that allows up to 1000 devices in a corporate network, but there's a fair gap between 15 devices and an environment large enough to support an Intune account.

Let's say you've been using admin@contoso.com as your global admin account and adding computers to the Azure AD account. Currently, after enrolling 15 devices you have to create another, unlicensed Global Admin Account, such as admin2@contoso.com. Use that to add additional computers until you use up another 15 devices, then create admin3@contoso.com and so forth.

In small businesses where there is only 1 IT admin it makes no sense as it is always the same person setting up and joining the computers. Why have to create unlicenced users as a workaround and simply not remove the 15 device per admin enrollment restriction?

    We have this set to "unlimited" in our tenant, so this capability may have been updated since this was entered. AD | Devices | Device Settings
