Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune December 2012 Release

Reports overview

Windows Intune reports provide information about the software, and hardware and software licenses in your organization and can help you confirm current needs and forecast future spending. The Windows Intune Reports workspace lets you do the following:

  • Create a new report

  • Print a report

  • Export a report

  • Save a report

  • Save a modified report

  • Load a saved report

  • Delete a saved report

ImportantImportant
To ensure that you can view reports in the Windows Intune administrator console, if you are viewing the Windows Intune administrator console with a web browser that has a pop-up blocker enabled, you must configure the pop-up blocker to allow pop-up windows from Windows Intune. If you do not do this, you may be unable to view reports or complete other tasks in the Windows Intune administrator console. For information about other tasks that require Windows Intune pop-up windows to be allowed, see Release Notes for Windows Intune.

Report types

Windows Intune provides the following report types:

  • Update Report An update report displays the software updates that succeeded on computers in your organization, in addition to the updates that failed, are pending, or are needed. Filter updates based on criteria such as update classifications. For more information on software updates, see Configuring Windows Intune Updates.

  • Detected Software Report A detected software report displays software installed on computers in your organization and includes the software versions. Use this report to plan software purchases and to understand the software needs of uses in your organization. For more information on software distribution, see Using Windows Intune to Distribute Software Applications and Non-Microsoft Updates.

  • Computer Inventory Report A computer inventory report displays information about computers in your organization. Use this report to plan hardware purchases and to understand more about the hardware needs of users in your organization. For more information on working with managed computers, see Deploying and Enrolling Windows Intune Client Computers.

  • License Report There are two types of License reports:

    • License Purchase Reports display the software titles for all licensed software in selected license groups, based on their licensing agreements. You can use this report to find gaps in coverage for the license agreements in your organization.

    • License Installation Reports compare installed software on computers in your organization with your current license agreement coverage. Use this report to determine whether your organization has sufficient license agreement coverage.

    For more information on licensing, see Managing License Agreements in Windows Intune.

    noteNote
    Reports are for your use only. For information about Microsoft privacy practices, see the Microsoft Online Services Privacy Statement.

    If license information has not been refreshed in more than 24 hours, it is refreshed when you generate a license report.

    A license report should not be considered an exact calculation of software titles that are being used or proof of compliance with agreements. The report is a tool to help you make licensing decisions for your organization. Windows Intune might not detect some products that are able to have a Microsoft volume license.

noteNote
