Walkthrough: From a detailed report to an insight

Let's walk through the flow from a detailed report to an insight and actions. This is an anti-spam and anti-malware example.

  1. We begin with Security & Compliance Center reports. (Go to Reports > Dashboard.)

    In the Security & Compliance Center, go to Reports > Dashboard

  2. We choose a report to get a more detailed view. (Choose a report, such as the Threat protection status report.)

  3. We notice an insights indicator in the chart as well as below the report. Positioning the mouse pointer on the insights marker gives some additional details. (Hover over the insights marker to see additional details.)

  4. Clicking either the insights marker in the chart or the insights widget about malware below the chart opens a details pane. (Below the chart, select the insights widget.)

    The details pane provides information and recommendations to consider, including reviewing policies, conducting further exploration, and editing status. (Learn more about anti-spam and anti-malware protection in Office 365.)
