Microsoft launches Windows release health section for IT administrators to improve management efficiency
Today, Microsoft announced the Windows release health dashboard to subdivide and categorize various issues, allowing administrators to filter all devices by tags.
This feature is only available to subscription companies in the Microsoft 365 Management Center. If the company already uses this feature, the administrator can use these new features.
Windows release health section supports all supported Windows operating systems, including but not limited to Windows 10 and Windows Server.
Administrators can also learn about the latest known issues of Windows 10 and Windows Server directly through the dashboard, including fixes provided by Microsoft.
For unresolved issues, known issues will display the details of the issue, such as problem symptoms, temporary solutions, mitigation steps, original update and repair status, etc.
Windows release health section also adds a filter to the operating system version label. Administrators can directly use the filter to check only the issues related to the version used by their company.
Companies usually don’t upgrade their operating systems frequently based on stability considerations. After all, Microsoft’s current operating system update often has various serious problems.
In fact, Windows release health is that Microsoft wants to provide administrators with more detailed instructions to facilitate the administrators to assess whether related issues affect the normal use of the enterprise.
If there is no problem, the enterprise administrator can perform the upgrade in batches through other management tools, or select some devices to upgrade for testing, etc.
Microsoft stated that Windows release health is designed to inform you about known issues, so you can troubleshoot and temporarily fix the issues encountered by users.
At the same time, you can also determine when your organization can deploy these updates and at what scale. For details, please visit the dashboard for details.
