Work with reports

The Microsoft Intune admin center brings together reporting from several products into a single location to help you monitor, and investigate issues with your Azure AD organization ("tenant") configuration and devices.

Microsoft Managed Desktop has a section in the Reports menu where you can find reports specific to Microsoft Managed Desktop's management of the registered devices. In several locations throughout the Microsoft Intune admin center, you can filter reports from other product groups. You can include or exclude devices that are managed by Microsoft Managed Desktop.

  • Administrators assigned to an Intune role with read permissions

About data latency

The data source for these reports is the Windows diagnostic data. The data typically uploads from enrolled devices once per day. Then, the data is processed in batches before being made available in Microsoft Managed Desktop. The maximum end-to-end latency is approximately 24 hours.

Windows quality update statuses

The following statuses are used throughout the Microsoft Managed Desktop reporting suite to describe the quality update status for devices:

Each status has its own set of sub statuses to further describe the status.

Healthy devices

Healthy devices are devices that meet all of the following prerequisites:


Healthy devices will remain with the In Progress status for the 21-day service level objective period. Devices which are Paused are also considered healthy.

Sub status Description
Up to Date Devices are up to date with the latest quality update deployed through the Microsoft Managed Desktop release schedule
In Progress Devices are currently installing the latest quality update deployed through the Microsoft Managed Desktop release schedule
Paused Devices that are currently paused due to a Microsoft Managed Desktop pause. For more information, see update deployment.

Not Up to Date (Microsoft Action)

Not Up to Date means a device isn’t up to date when the:

  • Quality update is more than a month out of date, or the device is on last month’s quality update
  • Device is more than 21 days overdue from the last release.


Microsoft Action refers to the responsibility of the Microsoft Managed Desktop Operations Team to carry out the appropriate action to resolve the reported device state. Microsoft Managed Desktop aims to keep at least 95% of eligible devices on the latest Windows quality update 21 days after release.

Sub status Description
No Heartbeat The Windows Update service hasn’t been able to connect to this device. The service can’t offer the update to that device.
Not Offered The Windows Update service hasn’t offered the update to that device.
Policy Blocking Update This device has a policy that is blocking the update, such as a deferral or pause policy. Devices are only in this state after the 21-day threshold.
In Progress—Stuck This device has downloaded the update but is getting stuck in a loop during the install process. The update isn’t complete.
Other This device isn't up to date and isn’t reporting back data from the client.

Ineligible Devices (Customer Action)

Customer Action refers to the responsibility of the designated customer IT administrator to carry out the appropriate action to resolve the reported device sub status.

Within each 24-hour reporting period, devices that are ineligible are updated with one of the following sub statuses.

Sub status Description
Insufficient Usage Devices must have at least six hours of usage, with at least two hours being continuous.
Low Connectivity Devices must have a steady internet connection, and access to Windows update endpoints.
Out of Disk Space Devices must have more than one GB (GigaBytes) of free storage space.
Not Deployed Microsoft Managed Desktop doesn't update devices that haven't yet been deployed.

Data export

Select Export devices to export data for each report type.


You can’t export Microsoft Managed Desktop report data using Microsoft Graph RESTful web API.

Endpoint analytics

Microsoft Managed Desktop is now integrated with Endpoint analytics. These reports give you insights for measuring how your organization is working and the quality of the experience delivered to your users. You can find Endpoint analytics in the Reports menu of the Microsoft Intune admin center. To pivot a score to only include devices being managed by Microsoft Managed Desktop, go to any report, select the Filter dropdown, and then select Microsoft Managed Desktop devices.

If Endpoint analytics weren't automatically configured for your Azure AD organization ("tenant") during enrollment, you can do that yourself. For more information, see Onboard in the Endpoint analytics portal. You can enroll all of your devices, or, if you want to include only Microsoft Managed Desktop devices, select the modern workplace device groups for Test, First, Fast, and Broad. These reports might require different permissions. For more information, see Permissions to ensure you have roles appropriately assigned.


To better respect user privacy, there must be more than 10 Microsoft Managed Desktop devices enrolled with Endpoint analytics to use this filter.

Intune reports

Microsoft Intune is one of the services we use to manage devices on your behalf.

In some cases, it can be helpful to use Intune reports to specifically monitor administration of your Microsoft Managed Desktop devices. You can exclude the devices we manage from the report you use to manage other devices. The following reports let you filter capability to include or exclude Microsoft Managed Desktop devices.


Custom Microsoft Managed Desktop roles guarantee access only to the Microsoft Managed Desktop reports. To access other parts of the Microsoft Intune admin center, such as All devices, see Role-based access control with Microsoft Intune.
