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

MUST have this feature.

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
hello i would like to have a report where in i can view all the office installs of the users

How to view the consolidated report of office installs in Windows PC? Is there any way to get a consolidated report of office activations in Windows PC with machine names. At present, we can view the office installs with machine name from the individual users those who had been assigned with E3 licenses. How to generate a consolidated report of office installs with machine names of Windows PC with or without user specific.

Hello. I would like to post the same request as everyone here and ask the O365 Product team to add a PowerShell command which gives the option (for businesses) to supply the devices the Office 2016 or greater have been Activated / installed upon. NCC are looking at this product and this has ben sked about recently.
How long before the product team responds? I'm constantly told "the product team pay close attention to the UserVoice feedback.." What is the vote threshold for when someone will respond?

Being able to have this available as part of a get-msoluser command would be extremely useful! Having both the number of activations (of a given license) and the device it is activated on would be even better! It doesn't have to be real-time...if the data was X days old (say updated weekly or twice weekly) that would be (in my mind) acceptable (I'm sure the it would have to be exported from a different directory of license usage into the directory where the user object sits and so real-time could be problematic). To make it easier, it could use the same "index" pattern as the licenses itself (for where licenses.accountskuid is the E3 license, then licenses.activations would be a value of how many current activations; a bonus would be licenses.devices would show the device names the E3 (O365 proplus) is activated on (PC name, phone name, etc) - not sure what would be the appropriate data type as long as we can decode it. Thank you in advance!

Now there's 500 Votes and here I come with my customer having 60k+ Seats and this thing would be absolutely helpfull! So please get this on the road ASAP. Thank you very much.

Management via Powershell would be great.
We have just had a mix up with shared configuration and switching to device based activation!
Now some internal pcs are counted against user's licence counts.
I have a list so i would like to be able to do this in powershell, delete machine xyz from user abc.
I would rather be able to do this than get the users to do it themselves.
