Privacy changes and API support for Microsoft 365 usage reports

At Microsoft, we are committed to both data-driven insights and user privacy. As part of that commitment, we made a change in September 2021 to Microsoft 365 usage analytics to conceal user group and site names by default. Starting on June 23rd, we will conceal the GroupID variable in the Groups Activity section of the Microsoft 365 Active Users report and Microsoft 365 Apps usage report. At the same time, we will be introducing an API to assist global admins to manage data privacy controls for Microsoft 365 Reports. An image providing an example of how to change report settings via the API. The report will only contain a Privacy Setting property. When concealing user group and site names are disabled, admin roles and Reports reader roles will be able to see identifiable user-level information. Check out what features are in development or coming soon on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap. Read more at Source: Microsoft Tech Community Microsoft 365 Blog
