    Hi All,
    Firstly allow me to apologise if this has been asked elsewhere (site search yielded no results)

    Is there a way of creating a Powershell script that will generate a report of Office installs per user?
    This can be seen in the office 365 admin panel under:
    Active Users >> select user >> Office Installations: Edit >> Microsoft Office

    Many thanks in advance

    So, the only way to check how many activations exists for an user, is through the Office 365 admin portal. I would suggest to up-vote this on the uservoice website. There is already an idea suggested:
