ManageEngine O365 Manager Plus Vs. Native Office 365

Adoption of Office 365 has picked up in big and small businesses, and it is mandatory to monitor them continuously to keep your Office 365 setup secure. Office 365 comes with its own set of pre-configured reports, which only manage to graze the surface of the happenings in your Office 365 environment. The management features provided also lack the knack of managing Office 365 in a simplified way. Another obvious shortcoming of the native Office 365 is the lack of a scheduler to automate generation of reports, and mailing them to administrators at fixed intervals. Native Office 365 also do not provide any auditing reports to audit the happenings in your organization. The audit logs have to be perused without any filter features to retrieve the data you want.

This document compares the following Office 365 administration features provided by both O365 Manager Plus, and Office 365

Office 365 Auditing and Alerting

It is a good thing to have your Office 365 setup audited. You need to know who meddled with which file, who purged the emails out of a mailbox, and other activities. Office 365 console does not provide any audit reports. You have only the following two audit logs,

  • Security and compliance audit log
  • Admin audit log

The woes of these logs are that, it is difficult to filter data based on the actions. It allows you to filter data based on the type pf user (admin, user, non-owner, external owner). This is where O365 Manager Plus comes to the rescue.

With O365 Manager Plus, you can generate reports for each and every action separately while you have to peruse the audit logs for required action in native Office 365 reports. You can create your own report views, profiles, and make use of advanced filtering features to retrieve the required data.
