Get an overview of the system
You have been using the Exchange Online service included with Office 365 for some time now, but you are missing some key indicators. If you have trouble answering the following questions, then Promodag Reports can help you.
- How to check the progress of the migration by identifying the users who use the service, and those who do not use it?
- How to measure the adoption of the system through the study of traffic evolution?
- How to determine hourly and weekly traffic peaks?
- Which departments are the largest consumers of the messaging service, and who are their correspondents?
- How to easily inventory users' mailboxes with their archives, mobile devices by model and operating system, distribution groups with their members, or shared mailboxes?
- How to produce statistics of size, number and age of items contained in mailboxes?
Face your legal obligations
Legislation on the use of the computer tool becomes more complex as it is refined, and the messaging administrator is increasingly required to produce compliance reports for decision-makers or human resources. Promodag Reports allows you to verify that the rules in force in the company are respected.
- Easily respond to eDiscovery requests related to the GDPR using keyword-based searches.
- List users who can access other mailboxes or who are delegates.
- Produce compliance reports on individual users' mailboxes to respond to administrative or court requests.
- List the redirection rules that are enabled on inboxes.
- Detect potentially unprofessional message exchanges by filtering specific SMTP addresses or domains.
- Verify that the right to disconnect is respected by counting users who send messages outside working hours.
- Keep a local history of messages exchanged to anticipate your future obligations.
Optimize the use of your resources
The use of Office 365 licenses makes it essential to check the proper use of the resources available to users. Beyond the subscription costs, the maintenance of stale mailboxes leads to a loss of administration time. In addition, it must be ensured that the internal equipment managed through Office 365 is used to the best of its ability.
- List unused mailboxes so you can disable them and save licenses.
- Break down mailboxes by size to assign them the optimal subscription.
- Stop maintaining distribution groups or unnecessary contacts.
- Get rid of public folders that contain outdated or confidential data.
- Measure the response times to messages received by shared customer service mailboxes and view the email exchange history.
- Calculate in just a few clicks the usage rate of meeting rooms or managed devices through Exchange Online.
Get indicators for your daily management
Use reliable indicators to perform your daily tasks, identify future needs, and plan future developments. Identify potential anomalies and long-term trends by consolidating the data you have and comparing it with the data you previously gathered.
- Group the mailboxes by size and easily determine which quota to apply to them. Quantify your backup and archiving needs.
- List and notify users who are about to reach their quota.
- Sort your mailboxes by SMTP domain.
- Show the breakdown of messages by day or hour in local time, not in UTC time.
- View the growth of mailbox sizes over time to highlight their size and percentage fluctuation, and derive basic patterns.
- Automatically send reports to users or their manager.
Manage the content of user mailboxes
With the implementation of regulations such as the GDPR, the management of the content of mailboxes becomes an object of concern. The e-mail administrator is therefore faced with eDescovery requests to ensure that the system does not contain sensitive information about privacy. Promodag Reports can analyze the contents of mailboxes as well as public folders.
- Search for messages by keyword in mailboxes and public folders.
- Show the breakdown of Outlook items by age, size or folder.
- Check the size of standard folders: Recycle Bin, Junk Mail ... to check for regular cleaning.
- View the breakdown and size of attachments by type.
- List the permissions granted on the mailbox folders.
- Extract meetings and calendar appointments, and easily summarize them.
- Detect the email rules applied in the mailboxes, and especially the rules for redirection to external correspondents.
