As a tenant admin, you will be asked for reports and information about the users in your tenant. One of the basic requests is around the number of users. A basic user export provides all this information and much more. In this recipe, we'll obtain that from the Microsoft 365 Admin Center.
The user creating the account must be an admin with the appropriate role (such as Global Admin, User Admin, and so on).
How to do it…
- Go to the Microsoft 365 Admin Center at http://admin.microsoft.com.
- Select Users > Active users.
- Click Export Users:
- A dialog box will appear—click Continue or No.
- A CSV file that provides several columns of information on each user will download to your PC.
How it works…
You used the Export Users button to pull down a CSV report of active users that can be sorted, filtered, or shared.
