Possibility of detailed reporting of mailboxes
Exchange Reporter Plus provides seamless access to an extensive database of mailbox reports, such as their size, attachments in them, and even keyword searches. The reporting function also allows you to verify resources such as public folders, remaining disk space and OWA & ActiveSync reports. As a result, each of the generated reports can be sent to a CSV, PDF, XLS or HTML file.
Audit of events on servers and Exchange monitoring
The system also includes an event auditing function for Exchange and Exchange Online servers. When generating a report, the user can select a specific period, domain, and events captured during or outside of working hours. Each of the reports can be added to a cyclical schedule and then sent to a selected path on the disk.
Audit function of changes in authorizations, DAG and databases
An important aspect is that the system has a module for alerting about user permissions, DAGs and the database itself.
