Introducing a quick and simple page where you can see the update status for the devices in your organization. The initial launch of the software updates page in the Microsoft 365 admin center will focus on Windows and Office updates.

Focus on security
Keeping devices current with the latest security updates is an important part of an IT admin’s role. The software updates page in the health section of the Microsoft 365 admin center provides a high-level summary view that informs you of devices that may be behind on taking the latest updates released by Microsoft.
In both the Office and Windows tabs, you’ll be able to see whether devices are current on the latest build or not. We know that it can take a little while to get updates deployed in your environment and so we differentiate between being a single security update behind or being multiple security updates behind.
This is Preview
There may be some rough edges, but we want your feedback. As all the presented data is based on required diagnostic data, which is generally best effort, there may be some inconsistencies in the device count data. We do expect a day or more of latency in the data that is presented to the IT admin.
Is the data accurate enough to be useful to you? Is the latency tolerable? What would you like to see additional information or features on a page like this? Let us know in the comment section below.
