We sync users desktop and documents with OneDrive sync, I would like to report on when each user had synchronised last to ensure that the company has a recent backup of files and data.

Can this be performed inside of the O365 admin environment? if so can we have an alert if files aren't synced for a duration or a listing of all users and the DateTime last performed?

Hey @ColinRichards ,

 

Unfortunately, it has been a pain area for admins for so long now. Here is a similar discussion talking about some alternatives but none as much promising as one would expect :

There is some hope though that MS is working on it, and may be in first quarter of 2021, we might see something:

Thanks

@harveer singh , appreciated, will try the Powershell for the moment
