Message Summary

Updated June 2, 2022: We have updated the content below for clarity. Thank you for your feedback.

We will be hiding the GroupID variable in Microsoft 365 Usage Reports in the ‘Groups activity’ section of the ‘Active users – Microsoft 365 Services’ and ‘Active Users – Microsoft 365 Apps’ from June 2023.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93308

When this will happen:

We will be rolling this out to all customers beginning in late June and complete roll out by late July.

How this affects your organization:

When this change is implemented, Administrative roles and the Report Reader role will not be able to view Group ID identifiable information in Microsoft 365 Usage Reports. This change will help companies support their local privacy laws.

What you need to do to prepare:

Global administrators can revert this change for their tenant and show identifiable user information if their organization’s privacy practices allow. This can be achieved in the Microsoft 365 admin center by going to the Settings > Org Settings > Services page, selecting ‘Reports’ and unticking ‘Display concealed user group and site names in all reports’. Showing identifiable user information is a logged event in the Microsoft 365 compliance center audit log.  

You are receiving this message because our reporting indicates one or more users in your organization are using or have access to Microsoft 365 usage reports in the admin center.
