The New ConfigMgr Report “Lifecycle 05A – Product Lifecycle dashboard” that Microsoft just released is now…

As some of you know, “and that would be the people that read the what’s new for the recent current branch release” or “the people that discover it later down the way“. that Microsoft released a new default report titled “Lifecycle 05A – Product Lifecycle dashboard“. This report shows the state of the Microsoft Lifecycle Policy for Microsoft products installed on devices managed with Configuration Manager. It also provides you with information about Microsoft products in your environment, supportability state, and support end dates. Starting in version 1810, this report includes details for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager and later.  Not going into details about the report, you can get that here.

The look and feel and improved a bit, the columns are stretched out to provided more room for the data values to show on one line. Added a Status column to provide a clear indication of how many days are remaining. This helps when viewing multiple reports across various categories, due to the fact report can be customized even further.

But what I will add is that I took this report and improved it a bit. See the before and after screenshot below…
