At Microsoft, we’re committed to both data-driven insights and user privacy. As part of that commitment, we’re making a change to Microsoft 365 usage analytics on September 1, 2021 to pseudonymize user-level information by default.
This change affects the following products and APIs, and will help companies support their local privacy laws:
- Microsoft 365 Reports in the Microsoft 365 admin center
- Microsoft 365 usage reports in Microsoft Graph
- Microsoft Teams analytics and reporting in the Microsoft Teams admin center
- The reportRoot: getSharePointSiteUsageDetail API (1.0 and beta) for SharePoint site detail
Learn more about the change and how to revert it here. This product change will bolster privacy for users, while still enabling IT professionals to measure adoption trends, track license allocation and determine license renewal in Microsoft 365.
