The Navigator may contain a series of previously loaded or generated projects with each project representing a separate data collection.  The projects specific to Essentials Administrator are defined by a bar graph icon Administrator2 and contain the data from all previously run data collections.  Inside these projects will be the locations that were included with this scan, be it multiple site collections, OneDrives, sites, and lists.

Report Selections Menu
