Microsoft brings MyAnalytics work tracker to all Office 365 users

Microsoft brings MyAnalytics work tracker to all Office 365 users

Microsoft unveiled MyAnalytics for Business Premium E5 users in October 2016. Now the company also brings the tracker to all Office 365 users, as well as users of Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Business Suite with Exchange Online. That’s what VentureBeat reports.

MyAnalytics is called the “fitness tracker for work” by Microsoft. The service is a personalized dashboard that provides a summary of the hours a user spends on certain tasks. These include meetings, the use of e-mail, “focusing” and overtime.

In addition, suggestions are given on how a user can reduce non-productive meeting times and overtime. It can also use artificial intelligence to analyse e-mails. Based on this, the service can automatically add tasks to a to do list, based on appointments made in messages.

Outlook and Skype

The summaries of MyAnalytics are currently mainly based on the use of Microsoft Outlook and Skype for Business. Later this month, insights from Microsoft Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint will also be available. In the next two months, more MyAnalytics functions will be added to the suites.

The aim is to prevent users from getting a burnout at work. By adding support for more apps, users get a better idea of how they spend their time at work. However, this requires the use of the dashboard, as well as background monitoring and weekly emails from MyAnalytics to analyze the workflows.

MyAnalytics was unveiled for Business Premium E5 users in October 2016, after it came from Delve Analytics. Microsoft says it hopes to “balance working days around the world” by making the tracker available to millions of additional customers. The service is available not only for Office 365, but also for users of Business Essentials and Business Premium E1, E3 and E5.
