MC217998, Plan For Change, Published date: Jul 7, 2020
Action required by Aug 7, 2020Major update: AnnouncementApplies To: All
As we advised in MC195889 in November 2019, we are getting ready to retire Classic usage and popularity reports and these will no longer be available after August 7, 2020. Instead, users will be able to find site usage data through the modern Site Usage report.
- Major: Retirement
- Timeline: August 7, 2020
- Action: Review and assess
How this will affect your organization:
If you use classic sites and require usage data, you can download historical data for all these popularity reports until August 7, 2020. Users will no longer be able to download usage data for Classic sites after this change is implemented.What you need to do to prepare:
After this change is implemented, you can get site usage data from the modern Site Usage page. To see the page, select Site settings > Popularity trends > Usage. You can access usage data for the last 90 days. The data that’s represented in the modern Site Usage report includes data from both classic and modern sites. Also, the modern Site Usage page will start supporting download of data in Excel before the classic reports are removed.
You can learn more about the capabilities of the modern site usage page here.
In case you want to get usage reports for individual items (list items, documents), you can use the GetItemAnalytics Graph API.
