We are using the basic Office 365 Mobile Device Management and last week it started blocking half of our devices (mix of different iphones and android), including my own. There was no change made to the security profile or the mobile devices. I was in con

AFAIK, you don't need to be an admin to do this...I have just tested it with a regular user in one of my tenants and it works as expected

Hi, in our tenant we don't have the option showing to "edit home page" in the Admin center.  Usually there is a pencil icon next to the "Home" page title, but we don't see this. This is the same for all of our Global Admin accounts.

Yes, customization of Admin Center Home page disappeared for us as well. Have no idea if it's possible to switch it on.

Same issue here: For our tenant the OneDrive report is missing a lot of data as well. Most users do not appear in the report while they áre using OneDrive.

In my tenant the OneDrive and SharePoint Usage reports on Office 365 Admin Center (newest version) is displaying GUID links and GUID username rather than the human comprehensible data.


Example: "Site owner" : "[PII:H101(TLQB7b12eF+wrhXUxljRIasPiZTFmQiRjm0

Hi everyone,

Our DLP reports still show the GUID instead of the file location in Sharepoint and the Last Modified user.  Are others still having any issues with the GUID?

For my part, this was resolved as part of SP92913 - SharePoint and OneDrive usage report issue on Feb 8, 2017.
Hi, has been like that for a long time? Propably an update unfinished or gone wrong. Give the MS Team a headsup. Also could you make a screendump for us?

Yeah, I'm seeing the same for the ODFB report. Looks like the "Display anonymous identifiers instead of names in all reports" setting is taking effect even though it's di
