M365 Changelog: New Group Policy Object for the OneDrive sync health dashboard

MC357841 – Admins may now configure the OneDrive sync client to send health data using the simpler Group Policy Object “EnableSyncAdminReports”, which does not require a Tenant Association Key.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88871.

When this will happen:

The new Group Policy Object is available now for OneDrive sync clients at version 22.060 or later.

How this will affect your organization:

Once you have configured sync clients to send diagnostic data, the preview dashboard allows you to view deployed OneDrive sync app versions, view errors on individual devices and in aggregate, and monitor the deployment progress of Known Folder Move. 

What you need to do to prepare:

This change only affects admins who have opted in to OneDrive Sync health reports and have configured the OneDrive sync client to send health data. The previous Group Policy Object (GPO) “SyncAdminReports” is still supported and will continue to be supported for 60 days after General Availability is announced. 

Microsoft recommends that admins deploy the new GPO now, to ensure a smooth transition when General Availability is announced. As with the previous GPO, Microsoft recommends a phased rollout to minimize network load and to ensure sync clients are correctly configured.
