Microsoft announces new usage reports for SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Exchange Online


Microsoft today announced three new usage reports for SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Exchange Online, which provide you with additional insights about how end users are using and adopting Office 365. Soon, Microsoft will also add activity reports for Office 365 Groups, Yammer groups, clients used per product, i.e., email or Skype, and Office 365 licenses.

SharePoint Online activity reports:

The new SharePoint activity report provides you with details about how users in your organization use SharePoint Online team sites to store and collaborate on files. You can use the report to see which users are active on SharePoint and engage with files stored within team sites—a file is counted as active if it has been created, modified, deleted, shared internally or externally or synced to clients.

OneDrive for Business activity report:

The new OneDrive for Business activity report enables you to understand which users are using OneDrive in your organization within Office 365. Together, with the already available OneDrive for Business usage report, you now have a holistic view of how your users are leveraging OneDrive to store and collaborate on documents.

Mailbox usage report:

The new Mailbox usage report—together with the already available email activity report—provides you with a complete picture about how your users are using their mailboxes. You can easily see how many mailboxes are actively being used in your organization, how many items are stored in each user’s mailbox and how much storage space these items take up.
