Microsoft 365 suite is one of the leading productivity apps used today in organizations.
Torii integrates with Microsoft 365 and syncs the following:
- List of users
- Licenses (assigned and unassigned)
Furthermore, you can automate Microsoft 365 onboarding and offboarding using Torii workflows and use Torii to perform the OneDrive Migrate User Files action. This action can be used as part of the offboarding process to migrate off-boarded users' files (personal drive) to their manager.
Permissions needed to view usage data in Torii
* Microsoft Teams Exploratory license is required
To view usage in Torii, you need to change the default MS365 settings to show identifiable user information.
Open MS 365 Admin console and go to Settings > Org Settings > Services from the left menu.
Select Reports from the list.
Under Choose how to show user information, uncheck the statement "Display concealed user, group, and site names in all reports," and then save your changes.
The users who connected Office 365 integration must have a "Reports reader" role or "Global administrator" role.
To assign the role:
- Open MS 365 Admin console and go to Roles > Role assignments from the left menu.
- Select Reports reader from the list.
- Under the "Assigned" tab add a user who connected the integration.
Once the role is assigned, usage data will be fetched in the next account synchronization. You do not need to reconnect the integration.
How usage data is synced
Once the default settings are overwritten, Torii will sync usage for Microsoft 365 suite and its child apps - Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Teams. Torii syncs usage from all platforms on which the apps were used - desktop, web, and mobile. The data will be fetched 28 days back with a delay of 2 days (as provided in Microsoft 365 admin center reports).
Pay attention that you will see each of the apps above as a separate app on the Torii platform. The usage will be displayed on the app level and summed up to the total usage of the MS365 suite. Teams app is an exception and will not be summed up, standing on its own.
