Microsoft 365 Checklist for Super Administrators

Analytics 365 will import your organization's Microsoft 365 set up. Checking that you have set up Microsoft 365 groups according to Microsoft guidelines (see below) will help you get the most out of Analytics 365. 

Review your Microsoft 365 hierarchy

Check that your Microsoft 365 hierarchy is current and accurate. Add managers for every employee in the admin structure as Analytics 365 will use this information to populate the People directory and identify the organizational relationships. 

Add time zones to each employee

Setting time zones for all employees will make it possible to use the Time filter when running reports in Analytics 365. For example, using the Working Hours and Outside of Working Hours filter is useful to monitor well being and work load.

Review your Dynamic Groups in Microsoft 365

Analytics 365 will import all Microsoft 365 Groups including Microsoft 365 Groups (Teams), Distribution Groups, Security Groups, and Call Queues where Teams Calling is in play. Reports are generated on the activity of users with a collaboration analytics license of these predefined groups.
