Exchange Outlook Web Access (OWA) is a webmail service that helps users on the move to access Exchange mailboxes using mobile devices. With such flexibility comes additional responsibility in monitoring the login and logoff details of Exchange users closely. To aid in monitoring OWA activities, Exchange Reporter Plus provides basic OWA reports, which offer actionable data like:
The suite of OWA reports doesn't end here. OWA logon information can be further drilled down to the level of monitoring and tracking individual department-wise logon information. The OWA Department Reports category is designed to provide these in-depth specifics by tracking the traffic information from the OWA logs.
Report on and audit Exchange Online using Exchange Reporter Plus.
This report lists the various departments in the organization along with the total logon count per individual department. Monitoring department-wise OWA logins can help administrators fetch the login details of each department and understand the OWA usage in their organization.
The Logon Count per Department report lists the aggregate OWA logon count for a department. This report goes beyond the surface level by listing the individual users of the department who have logged on using OWA along with their logon count. This gives a more clear picture of the OWA usage pattern of each department across the entire organization.
This report shows the detailed logon specifics of users of a department, like the client IP address OWA was accessed from, the browser used along with its version number, and the date of OWA logon.
All Exchange administrators need to do is schedule the OWA reports. Once scheduled, all the OWA login information across the entire organization is generated, and the administrator can export the reports to formats like CSV, PDF, XLS, or HTML.
