    Did you check the logs on the device in question?

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    Before reviewing the deployment evaluation process, it's important to find the Deployment Unique ID of the deployment by adding the Deployment Unique ID column in the console.

    Then we may check the PolicyAgent.log to see if we can find the Deployment Unique ID, for common deployment, we should get some log messages like:

    Initializing download of policy 'CCM_Policy_Policy5.PolicyID="{B040D195-8FA8-48D3-953F-17E878DAB23D}",PolicySource=...
    Download of policy CCM_Policy_Policy5.PolicyID="{B040D195-8FA8-48D3-953F-17E878DAB23D}",PolicySource=...
