Message center posts will include monthly active users (based off the past 30 days) specific to the Microsoft 365 service change being communicated.
This will help change coordinators and IT admins make a decision on which change they should address first vs deprioritize, based on the potential number of end users who could be impacted by a change eg: If the change is about a service which has 0 active users for your organization, you should be able to deprioritize the change.
Note: The monthly active users shown today is platform agnostic. i.e., if the change is for MS Teams, we will show the monthly active usage for the service all up, instead of scoping it to the specific platform of web, desktop, mobile (iOS, Android) and Mac. We are working on enhancing the feature in the future.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 83946.
