SharePoint admin center: New homepage insights dashboard

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC256460 · Published May 14, 2021

As an authorized Microsoft Partner, experienced SharePoint development group and Office 365 expert, QuixTec’s’ custom online or on prem solutions include the latest Microsoft updates throughout initiatives that we custom develop for you.

Message Summary

In the SharePoint admin center, you will now have an all-new home page dashboard that enables administration at a glance with actionable charts and insights as cards. This new dashboard is customizable—you can add, remove and rearrange cards to suit your needs.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68812

When this will happen:

  • We will start rolling this out to Targeted Release in mid-May and expect that phase of the rollout to be completed by late June
  • Production rollout will begin in late June and will be complete by late July.

How this will affect your organization:

As a SharePoint or Global admin , you will now have access to the new home page dashboard. This new dashboard is an upgrade to your existing home page. You will see the existing information along with new cards such as:

  • SharePoint storage usage
  • SharePoint site usage
  • SharePoint file activity
  • OneDrive usage
  • OneDrive file activity
  • Search active sites
  • Sensitivity labels
  • Term store operations

You can also add relevant cards from the Microsoft 365 admin center to the home page in the SharePoint admin center, such as:

  • Service health
  • Message center
  • Microsoft 365 active users report

In addition, features or actions that will help you manage your intranet better will now be surfaced as a ‘recommendation’ on the home page. These recommendations are tailored to each organization and will help you learn about improvements that you may not know about.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your SharePoint admins about the new dashboard and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
