New Reports – First set of Teams reports is now live

9 Apr 2018 by Doug Davis

Microsoft Teams has rapidly grown into a major Office 365 service, and recently passed the first anniversary of the worldwide launch. Not surprisingly, Teams reports have been one of our most frequent requests recently. Well, the wait is over –  in addition to the Teams Audit Events report, which was released in late February, our first wave of formal Microsoft Teams reports is now live!

Teams Daily Activity Report

Displays the daily number of enabled Teams users and the daily number of active Teams users.

Since Teams has the potential to be a high growth form of communication within Office 365, it’s important to track its adoption and ongoing usage. It can be beneficial to compare the number of users that are enabled for Teams vs which enabled users are active – ideally the two figures should be close to each other if Teams has been successfully adopted and licenses have been appropriately assigned.

Teams User Activity

Shows users that were active during the selected timeframe and the activities they performed.

Since Teams can be a very active workload within Office 365, organizations may want to track how users are utilizing it. The Teams User Activity report provides aggregate data based on statistics gathered on a daily basis. This report gives an accurate sense of the scale and importance of Teams within your organization. For example, you can view the total number of Teams chats or calls. The chart allows you to see how this tracks over time with adjustable time scales. The table has daily entries for all the activities for a user within the given timeframe, which can be used to review particular users.

Teams Tenant Activity

Displays daily Teams activity for the tenant, including totals for type of activity for a given time frame.

View aggregate daily totals for Teams usage within the Tenant as a whole. This report focuses on the four main types of communication models within Teams: chats undertaken in a group chat, private one to one chats, calls made within Teams, and meetings. These core metrics help administrators and management understand how Teams is being adopted and which features may require additional training.

The chart is a trend line of activity within the selected time frame and can be filtered by the type of communication. Dig deeper into the data using the table, which organizes data by the day that it was collected.

Teams Device Activity

Illustrates the types of devices that were active for a given day within a given time frame.

Teams is accessible on mobile devices, as well as computers and laptops. This report shows aggregate data for the types of devices being used within the tenant for a given day. For computer users, the OS is tracked, and for mobile Teams users, iOS vs Android is tracked. The chart shows the usage trends for each device type, and displays which devices are most widely used. This information can be used to inform your security policies. For example, if most of your users are accessing Teams on their mobile devices, you may want to consider using Microsoft Intune for better security and management of mobile devices.As with all of the Radar Reporting reports, this information can be customized, filtered and scheduled.
