ManageEngine announced the addition of Skype for Business server reports to Exchange Reporter Plus, its Exchange auditing, monitoring and reporting solution.

Available immediately, these new reports allow Exchange administrators to get metrics on and analyze every aspect of their Skype for Business environment.

While email is still the primary means of workplace communication, many Windows-based organizations depend on Skype for Business for real-time collaboration through calls, conferences and file transfers. Despite giving employees a more efficient way to communicate and collaborate with each other, Skype for Business presents some challenges for administrators. When it comes to reporting, the Skype for Business native control panel is cumbersome and time-consuming to use; PowerShell is a good alternative but only for those proficient in scripting.

"With all the problems that come with native Skype reporting, administrators are looking for a better alternative, one that's faster and easier to use," said Manikandan Thangaraj, director of product management at ManageEngine. "Going forward, we plan to make admins' lives even easier by expanding the Skype for Business capabilities in Exchange Reporter Plus to include auditing and monitoring features."

The new Skype for Business dashboard in Exchange Reporter Plus gives businesses the data they need to plan their network resources.

With Skype for Business reports in hand, administrators can:

- View details about conferences and their configurations, including content storage, grace periods, and maximum file upload size.

- Identify the number of instant messaging sessions and total message count for each user.

- Get comprehensive information about audio and video calls.

- View a summary of all file transfers in their organization.

- Get details about Skype for Business pools, sites, SQL instances and more.
