Office 365 - Reporting on User Policy Compliance via Policy Groups (Departmental IT)

This document explains how departmental IT staff can request reports on policy compliance for all users that are members of the department's policy enforcement group. This report informs departmental IT staff so they may assist users to achieve policy compliance.

Note: A few volunteer departments are working closely with UW-Madison's Office 365 Team to test and refine the use of policy groups. It has yet to be determined if the use of policy groups will be opened to campus. Please contact the DoIT Help Desk for more information.

Requesting a Compliance Report

Once you've taken the steps to create and populate policy groups for your organization, you'll be able to take the steps below to run compliance reports:

  1. Log on to the Wisc Account Administration site.
  2. Click Tools.
  3. Click Requests to expand its menu, and then click on Request O365 Compliance Report.
  4. From the dropdown, select the group on which you'd like the compliance report run and click Submit Request.

You will receive an email with your compliance report attached after some time. Note: only users who are non-compliant will appear in the report; fully compliant users do not appear in the report. Additionally, the more users you have in your policy groups, the longer it will take for the report to be generated and emailed to you (a good rough estimate is about 5 seconds per user).
