Windows Intune today received a number of enhancements to the multi-account dashboard that improves its usefulness and versatility. According to a Windows Tune member "there is now a 'summary' status symbol displayed to the left of the account name, so you can quickly scan your list of accounts for those with potential issues. The summary status represents the most negative status of all of those displayed on the right of the account name."

"You can now click once to select an account in the list and display more detailed dashboard information in the lower portion of the screen. As shown in the example (pic 1), the 'Blue Yonder IT' account is selected and you can see that the agent health, policy, updates, and software statuses are all green, there are two alerts displayed (one critical and one warning), and that one computer requires follow up. Clicking on the next account in the list displays its detailed status (pic 2)," explained Windows Intune team:

"Double-clicking on an account will now take you into that account so you can respond to any issues displayed in the account detail pane. When you are in an account, you can easily go back to the account list using the 'Switch to another account' link in the upper right corner of the Windows Intune console."

For those with a large number of accounts, "filters have been added to allow you to display only the accounts that meet certain conditions. You can also perform searches for accounts using full or partial search criteria," the Windows Intune team stated:

"If you have access to multiple Windows Intune accounts, then you will have seen the multi-account dashboard. To have access to multiple accounts, the Live ID you use to log into Windows Intune must have been added as an administrator to more than one account. The multi-account dashboard displays a summary view of all those accounts, and allows you to easily move from one account to the other. This is especially useful if your organization has more than one Windows Intune account, perhaps for licensing,organizational, or billing reasons, or if you are a managed service provider who is using Windows Intune to manage a number of your customers' IT environments."
