How to View and Configure the OneDrive Sync Health Dashboard
For small businesses to large enterprises, the Health Dashboard is the single place to gather information and take action on sync app adoption and health. The Health Dashboard is a great feature for admins looking for a high-level view of how OneDrive is working for their team.
From the Sync health dashboard, admins have the ability to check the sync status and sync app version of individual devices, monitor Known Folder Move roll out, and track sync errors. The insights range from a high-level executive summary to a drill-down of sync status per device, to be used in various administrative scenarios. Here’s how you can set up the dashboard and begin leveraging its benefits.
In the left pain under Health, select the downward facing arrow (1) and then select OneDrive Sync (tab has a “PREVIEW” tag on it) (2).
Select “Enable preview features” to accept the license terms.
4. Once the dashboard appears, select “Settings” in the left pane.
5. Copy the Tenant Association Key. If it is empty, select “Generate new key. Copy the key which will be used in the next steps. Note: This screen may take a while to load before becoming visible.
