Customer asked for usage report for SharePoint online site collection. What i see in Site Usage report is data is provided for last 7 days. but user would like to go for last one month. Would like to know if there is any configuration settings available where i can change the date or do I need to build a custom application.

I followed this microsoft article but it only explains the feature https://support.office.com/en-us/article/View-usage-data-for-your-SharePoint-Online-site-2fa8ddc2-c4b3-4268-8d26-a772dc55779e

should be able to get full month by going to:

site collection level:


or site level:


it only gives you the old format of how many and not who in an excel spreadsheet.


The above tool will have the option to export/browse the site usage metrics for a longer period.


Please follow the steps below to use it.

  1. Settting up the SharePoint Online Management Shell Windows PowerShell environment by following https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fp161372.
  2. Download the GetSPOTenantStroageReport.ps1 to your desktop.
  3. Start the SharePoint Online PowerShell as administrator and run cd c:\users\username\desktop.
  4. Run the command “Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted” and input y for confirmation for allowing the computer run script
  5. Run the following command: .\GetSPOTenantStroageReport.ps1 -searchCenter https://.sharepoint.com/search -admin -password -adminSiteUrl https://-admin.sharepoint.com Note: Replace with your own tenant domain and replace and with the admin credentials.
  6. After the script is completed, a SPOTenantStroageReport.csv file will appear on your desktop. All the site collections’ usage will be listed.
