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.

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!

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.
this is an essential feature for efficient license management
it's available in the admin gui, why not in powershell?
but maybe Microsoft prefers counting and selling ;-(
Still not available?! Also I would be nice to see on what computers and when it was active for te last time...
Report showing each user's machine name that has been activated on our O365 account.
We need a report showing each user's machine name that has been activated on our O365 account.
Can be extracted from AdminCenter:
Reports>Usage> Activations (drop down menu) >Office365 Activations

I can use PowerShell to get a full report of users that have a ProPlus license (https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Get-Office365-usage-f955ade4) that also lists last activity date. I would find it very useful to be able to deactivate with PowerShell (not remove the license) to force a re-activation. This would then allow us to remove the license if the activity date continues to not get updated. I can't find anyway with PowerShell to deactivate ProPlus installations.

this is a basic requirement for any enterprise reporting! Why do we even have to vote for this? Please make this feature available ASAP. thanks!
Come on guys, two years and 350+ votes ... how about giving *us* some feedback?!
Still no progress? It is a simple task from my point of view, but M$ probably looking for $$$ not for satisi´fied admins :(

Is there an update on getting this reporting ability? I need to see who has activated their license and on what machines - and I have over 3500 users.
Tony Waite commented
This is a fundamental requirement that we need to report on for compliance. I do not understand why it is not available? Come on team - please make it happen.
Lots of votes. Any progress on this?

I was looking for a way to expose machine name via any reporting tool(s) (Admin portal, PowerShell, etc.). Is this simply not currently possible?
The weird thing is that data is already available, but you need to go into each individual user on your tenant > go to user properties > Office Installs > then you see a list of his/her activated Machines.
Why not consolidating these data into a single report? or even add a column under Admin Portal Home > Usage > Microsoft Office activation with computer name(s) per user ?
Machine name. Definitely this as a minimum should be added to the Office activations report. The data is sitting there under the user, so it isn't exactly a secret, it's just a short coming of the admin centre that we can't see from the top-down in a report.
