Appliance

New Feature

Mobility Dashboard

A new Dashboard got added to the Teams Analytics section where details about device usage for accessing MS Teams are visualized. Although several questions are already answered on that page (see titles), customers can ask your own questions against this data source with the power of Metabase.


New Feature

Azure Sync Simulations Dashboard

A new Dashboard called  Azure Sync Simulations got added to the Ops Analytics - Monitoring section. This information is an addon to the existing Azure Sync page which allows you to filter and play with all the collected data. This is for instance helpful in terms of SLA Reports.


Improvement

Azure AD Application for the Appliance

Whenever you setup OE the very first time, it requires an Azure App to have in place.
There is now an automatic way to deploy the necessary Azure AD Application for the Appliance with few mouse clicks (you can still use the manual way if you like).
Instead of configuring it manually, the app as well all the necessary permissions get deployed into your Azure Tenant on the fly (including  grant consen).

Note: this is not valid for the other Azure App for Bots! (for this the manual task is still valid)


Improvement

UI Menu look and feel

The menu got a bit optimized in terms of coloring/structure.

Improvement

Teams List

Active Users columns have been added which provides an immediate view on user activity for each MS Team. There are four categories: 7days, 30days, 90day and Total.


Improvement

Service Status Page

Those Service Status cards which indicate an issue (red) are now clickable with a redirect to the Admin Portal: https://admin.microsoft.com/AdminPortal/Home#/servicehealth


Improvement

Obfuscate User Names

We have optimized the obfuscation, which was introduced with v2.0.

Instead of seeing the real user name, [  Anonymized User - ID: xxxx ] is visible whenever obfuscation is active.
Aggregations on department/location/country level is still possible even if obfuscation is active.


Improvement

Dataminer update

DataMiner got updated to latest version 1.3.4 covering some important improvements and bugfixes. (e.g timezone support in columns)


Improvement

Storage Impact Page

A search filter has been introduced where one can filter the entire page for certain Teams (Team name filter). Based on the search criteria the scatter plot and all the other cards will show relevant content which one can use for comparison.


Improvement

IE 11 Support

The OfficeExpert UI supports now IE 11
