Microsoft Teams app usage report
The Teams app usage report in the Microsoft Teams admin center provides you with insights about which apps users are using in Teams. You can gain insights into the apps activity in your organization for different microsoft (Viva learning, Shifts etc.), third-party (Polly, Trello etc.) & Line of Business (LOB) Teams apps.
You can use this report to understand where exactly different apps are getting used and deep dive into per-app utilization data.
The data represented in this report provide answers to the following questions:
- How many installed apps do users in your environment have?
- How many apps have at least one active user in your environment based on type (Microsoft, third-party, and LOB)?
- How many apps are being used per platform (Windows, Mac, web, or mobile)?
- How many active users and active teams are using an app?
Usage for Side loaded LOB apps is not included in this report.
