We continue to update the usage reports in the Office 365 admin center to provide you with a complete picture of how your organization is using Office 365.

You’ll start noticing the following enhancements over the coming weeks:


New Yammer groups activity report –  The new Yammer groups activity report will help you understand how your users engage in groups in Yammer to connect and collaborate across your organization.

In the graph at the top, you can see how many Yammer groups exist in your organization and how many of those are active – a Yammer group is counted as active if at least one message from it has been read, liked or posted.

In the table at the bottom, you can access detailed information broken down by group so you can understand

  • which groups are the most active
  • what kind of activity is happening in each group
  • what are your largest groups by type of activity

Updated Office 365 groups report – The existing Office 365 groups report will enhanced to include activities across Sharepoint sites and groups in Yammer associated with the Office 365 group.

For SharePoint, the report will include file activities performed by users in the group’s SharePoint site, allowing you to see how many files are active across all groups – any file created, modified, deleted, shared internally or externally and synched to clients is counted as an active file.

For Yammer, the report will include message activity so you can see how many messages haven been posted, liked or read by users in groups in Yammer associated with the Office 365 group.

Please note: The updates will gradually be rolled out to customers in August. Thus, if you don’t see the changes in your tenant yet, please check back in a few days. This rollout is excluded from Office 365 subscriptions in ITAR and German national Cloud.
