Yammer Device Reports in O365 Admin Center


See below for a copy of the message posted to the O365 Message Center yesterday.


Updated Feature: New report in the Office 365 admin center
To provide you with a complete picture of how your organization is using Office 365, we continue to include more reports in the Office 365 admin center. Today, we've begun rolling out a “Yammer device usage” report. This rollout should complete by the end of January, 2017.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 70928.

[How does this affect me?]
The report shows devices used by users to interact on Yammer. The report includes breakdown of activity across web and mobile clients, and lets you see the device types commonly used by people in your organization.

[What do I need to do to prepare for this change?]
To access the report please click “Usage reports” from the Admin Center homepage and choose the “Yammer device usage” report from the dropdown list at the top of the page. Please share your feedback by using the feedback button in the lower right corner of the admin center.


Additional Information


This is a positive step for Yammer reporting. However, the device chart is misleading with the sliding scale. On a bar chart, 2000 is about the same size as 10000 and is confusing. Hope that MS is working on improving this.

The scale on that chart is definitely weird.
Agree, common across all the reporting. I'm glad its not just me, bar charts are for seeing the size of columns, and log scales should have no part in that.

Thanks for your feedback. I've shared it with the engineering team. Please use the feedback button at the bottom of the admin center to share any additional feedback going forward as this directly lands with the right team.



Out of curiosity does anyone know if this report will evolve to add a category for the new desktop clients?


In the meantime can we assume that traffic is captured under "Web"?
