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.

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.

agree that machine name would be a nice add. the information is visible to the user. Make it visible and reportable for admins.

One of the issues is the data from the Admin Reporting Activation's Aren't accurate: it says for several users they haven't activated an Installation where I am very sure they have (Because I staged & Configured the PC's or either Installed & Activated their Installation)
While on the other hand I Pulled the assigned Licenses with Powershell (with a distinguished value for E1 & E3 (AccountSkuId))
All I would need to know is which users have activated an Office Installation (obviously they'd have an E3)
The users might have received an E3 but might not have activated an Installation, if I we're able to have Accurate intell on that I would be able to Reassign them to an E1 license and not waste an E3
I am glad to see MS has exposed installs of ProPlus on PC's in the Admin portal but there is still no visibility of installs on mobile devices. This leaves 10 potential installs of Office completely unmanageable except for removing the ProPlus license all together.
I don't care where a user has installed, but I would like to be able to get a list of the users that have installed office.
We can do a report of users, that shows how many installations they have done, and what type of device. It would be extremely helpful to add another field showing which machines the user has installed to.

Customer asking for that report...
Also need to get a report of installs by user

Agreed the ability to deactivate licenses from a central admin account would be nice!

I'd put an accent on manageability: there should be an option to deactivate installations! See thread: http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/148/t/350311.aspx
