It is not always easy to reach users via email or other channels. When there are projects running to exchange e.g. smartphones or migrations from files from a network drive to an SharePoint it is hard reach the users and get an answer. Intune provides with Endpoint Analytics a very good on board tool to easily reach users via a user dialog. In this blog I will show how you can use this with the example of a smartphone exchange. The dialog and the method can be adapted to many other use cases.
