Want to know more about reporting in Skype for Business Online?

In Skype for Business Online, a peer-to-peer session is a communication session involving just two users. The report also displays the number of peer-to-peer sessions that included modalities such as IM, video, application sharing, or file transfers. The total number of sessions will typically be lower than the combined total of the different modalities; that’s because any given session might use more than one modality. For example, suppose a peer-to-peer session uses audio, video, and application sharing. That’s a total of three modalities, but, overall, it counts as only one peer-to-peer session.

Although it's easier to use the Office 365 admin center, you can also use the Get-CsP2PSessionReport to create this Skype for Business Online report.
