Reporting for Microsoft Live@edu


Applies to: Live@edu

Topic last modified: 2010-05-27

You can use the Reporting page at Windows Live Admin Center to generate reports about your school's domains. These reports provide domain-level data for the domains owned by your school. Report results can help you identify:

  • The number of mailboxes in a domain.

  • How many users have signed in to their account at least once in a 30-day reporting period.

  • Trends in the number of active mailboxes in each of your domains. A mailbox is considered active if the user signs in to it at least once in a 30-day reporting period.

  • Trends in the number of mailboxes for your school and how many of those mailboxes are active.

What kind of reports are available?

You can generate three types of report for your Microsoft Live@edu domains:

  • Domain Summary   Returns data on general domain activity, such as the total number of mailboxes and the number of active mailboxes.

  • Service Usage Trend   Returns a month-by-month count of active mailboxes.

  • Domain Accounts Trend   Compares the number of active mailboxes to the total number of mailboxes.

You can view graphical-based reports at Windows Live Admin Center or export the results to Microsoft Office Excel.

How frequently is the data updated?

At Windows Live Admin Center, new data for Microsoft Live@edu domains is available at the end of each month. If you enroll a new domain at the beginning of the month, data about that domain won't be available until the end of the month. If you run a report before then, the report won't return any results.
