Nova Report Center

Microsoft has several different interfaces for tools used to perform Office 365 management, reporting, and auditing tasks. In contrast, Nova users perform that work in a single user interface.


To achieve this, Nova gathers reporting and auditing data from Office 365. Reporting data is collected about every 24 hours and auditing data is received from Microsoft when it becomes available. This data is stored in Nova for as long as the organization remains a subscriber, which is much longer than Microsoft typically stores this data in Office 365.


The flexibility and power of the Nova Report Center is ideal for organizations with custom reporting needs that can not be fulfilled by the standard reports available in Nova. To create a report with the Report Center, you specify:


1.How you want the report to look. You decide what sections the report contains. Will it have charts, graphs, maps, or tables that will display the information?

2.The types of data the report will display. These are called data sources.

3.Any filters you want to apply against the data sources. For example, your data source might be a list of Azure AD users. You might want to filter that list, so your report only shows users in North America or a certain department.


Just like other Nova reports, the reports created using Report Center can be saved, scheduled, and shared. If you do not want to build an entirely new report, you could even clone an existing report and customize it to meet your new needs.


Below is an example of a report built using Report Center.



Report Center terminology

If you are just getting started with the Nova Report Center, you may be unsure of some of the words and phrases that you encounter. Below are some common words and phrases related to Nova Report Center, along with descriptions.


It is important to differentiate what is meant between a section of a report and the report itself.

·A Section of a report are the individual charts, graphs and tables themselves. You can have one or multiple sections in a report.

·A Report is where individual data sections can be created, modified and stored.

Data sources

Data sources drive reports. They are the sets of information used to build reports. Choose a data source that is representative of the type of data you want to display. If you can not decide on a data source, you can clone one of the system reports to get started. To see more on data sources, click here.


You can narrow the scope of your report to a specific organization within your tenant.

Organization Group

Select an organization group to further narrow the scope within your report.

Add Aggregation

For table reports, you can aggregate fields to get a specific count for that field. For example, let us say you want to quickly see how many Azure AD users have been assigned to each department within your organization. You can do this by selecting Department as your table field, then select Add aggregation, then choose Display Name with Count as your operator. The amount of users within each department displays. This is useful if you need to know the number of objects within a data field.

Add Filter and Add Sorting

Filters and sorting are explained above. Note that you can use up to 5 filters within each section of your report. To learn more about filtering, click here.


Set the starting record by applying an offset.


This is the highest number of results shown within the report. For example, if you have a limit of 20, then 20 entries display. Note that if you choose to download your report, the limit will be ignored and all data is shown.

Enable Paging

Useful for large data sets, paging allows you to see a select number of results per page before you need to move to the next page for more results. If this is disabled, all data displays in one table without having to page through results. If the report is downloaded, it will not be organized into pages.


It is likely that your pie/bar chart will have a lot of data to show, resulting in a complex report that's not easy to analyze. Overflow aggregates calculations outside of your limit into one specific bar or pie wedge. For example, if you have a limit of 6 wedges or bars, any data from outside of your 6 biggest wedges or bars will be calculated and formed into one bar or wedge.

Customize and organize reports

Nova reports can be customized and organized.

Customizing reports

There are several ways to customize reports so they are specific to your organization. You can customize a report's sections and layout. You can customize the data source and fields used in each section. And, you can customize how information displays in each section by applying sorting and filters.

Searching reports

You can search for reports based on the title or description.

Cloning reports

You can clone any of the reports. After you give the new report a unique name, you can customize the new report by adding/removing sections, fields, and sorts/filters, so the new reports show exactly what you want to see.

Sharing reports across the organization

Organizing your organization's reports is easy, too. For example, you can share reports with the other Nova users from your organization.


Scheduling reports

You can schedule reports to be sent one time or periodically to stakeholders.

Importing and exporting report definitions

And, you can download a report definition, storing it for safe keeping. This is helpful in case the report definition gets edited by someone in your organization and you want to restore a previous version of the report. Here is how you can download a report definition:

Data sources

Reports built using the Nova Report Builder contain information from from various data sources. For example, reports might contain data related to Microsoft Teams, Yammer, Skype, and more. Additional data sources will be added over time.

A data source is a specific subset of data fields that are collected into a grouping for report creation.

Here is an example. In the menu, data source categories are shown in blue and the actual data sources are shown in black.



As you see in the image above, data sources are separated into categories. Here is more about each category:
