How can we improve OneDrive's security, policy and administration experiences??

Dashboard of All OneDrive Client Statuses

When looking at users who work in many locations across our organization, it would be helpful to have a centralized dashboard to look at what clients are syncing and include the following information: last time client synchronized, are there files that are failing to upload/download and the status of the client (sync pending, sync complete, etc.).

    We use a client desktop backup tool to bridge this gap, but it would be nice to have a dashboard so we can get rid of the need for this backup tool. It's expensive to cover the "Broken sync" client scenario. Not end of world since another layer of protection is always good, but would be nice to have one less product to maintain.

    I highly agree with this feature. I really hope this gets implemented. Shouldn't be hard to do.

    I agree that a dashboard is important. I've had to deploy Resilio Sync on top of Office 365 instead of using OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online.

    However, I think fixing their client and sync engine should be the real priority instead of a dashboard.

    Desperately needed.

    Staff think they are synching to the cloud when the client has actually failed (common problem on both Mac and Windows). Data loss potential is real.
