How can we improve the tenant admin features O365?

Enable management and reporting of Office ProPlus using Admin portal and/or PowerShell. What version? How many installs? etc

I would like to report installs by user. Similar to Telemetry dashboard with how many installs a user is using vs remaining installs. Machine name (because I have seen duplicates using 2 licenses on 1 machine). Usage. Is the user a heavy Excel user, PowerPoint, Word, etc.

        Please add this feature. It would be a lot easier than going to each user or running the report.

        This seems like a no-brainer. The data is already there. Just make it available for reports.

        Yes, please Microsoft! This is such a small feature... should already have this available!

        would like to see this feature added as well. I work for an MSP and it would be nice to compare Office 365 activation reports against client installs reported in our RMM utility.

        *3* years and nearly 900 votes now. No comment from the uservoice team. This is pathetic. This service costs a small fortune per user and there is no tool for managing licenses.

        The fact that a standard feature in the Admin GUI is left out of the PowerShell functionality seem like an odd omission. This seem a fairly major management feature that has been overlooked.

        With a large organization, the ability to detect unused activations and repurpose them will be critical to license management. This means the ability to search for and manage activations, most likely using PowerShell. If the admin panel REALLY gets to the point of supporting this, I will be very impressed.

        It is very frustrating to instruct a user who never uses the Web Portal how to fix a "Too Many Activations" message when they get handed a new PC.
        And to ask them to give you the password so you can "Fix" it is a violation of our security policy, which is required by our government contract

        Please enable this functionality. This is a paid for service that we'd like some reporting capabilities on.

        The ability to use PowerShell to report on and potentially alert administrators when a user is approaching or has reached their limit of Office activations would be extremely useful. It would enable administrators to take a proactive role in license / activation management. In large environments, using the GUI is terribly inefficient.

        Manipulating this data through powershell will be extremely useful.

        Need to get a report for all activated PCs using PowerShell for all users
