Admin console settings for battery health and telemetry

Through settings in the Admin console, Gopher for Chrome can collect and report on device telemetry data (battery health and storage in particular). With the new Battery Health Report, you will need to enable a few settings in the Admin console to start using this insightful report.

If you cannot get battery health data for devices, the following may be true:

  • The Admin console settings may not be configured properly.
  • The manufacturer/computer type does not share information about the device. 

The settings are located here:

Devices > Chrome > Settings > Devices > Device settings ~ User and device reporting

  4. For the Report device Hardware Information setting, select Enable all hardware information reporting.
  5. Click Save.

Caution: It is possible to select Customize for the Report device Hardware Information setting. With that selected, you also need to check Power status and Storage status in the customize list.
