You can apply Windows 10/11 feature updates using Intune. A feature update profile can be created on Intune admin center > Devices -> Feature Updates for Windows 10 and later.
Once you’ve assigned the feature update deployment profile to your devices, the feature update will be rolled out based on the deferral policies and deadline settings defined in the Update Rings policy.
After the upgrade process has finished, you can generate a report to check whether the devices have been updated to the selected feature update version. We’ll explore various methods for checking the feature update version on all devices and show you how to export the report in a CSV file.

1. Export Feature Update Report from the Intune Admin Center
Follow these steps to generate a Feature Update report:
- Login on Microsoft Intune admin center
- Click on Reports.
- Click on Windows updates (preview) under Device Management.
- Click on the Reports tab.
- Click on Windows Feature Update Report.
- Within the Feature Update policy, choose a feature update profile. This profile is the one you set up to update devices to a specific feature update version
- For Example, let’s say you created a Feature Update profile named “Enforce version 21H2” and deployed it to all your devices. Now, click on the “Generate” button to create a report.
- After generating the report, you’ll find information on the Update State, Update Substate, Update Aggregated information, and details like Device Name and User UPN. To save this report as a CSV file, simply click on the “Export” button at the top of the page.
Below information relates to Update State and Update Substate:
- Service-side data:
- Validation – The update can’t be offered to the device because of a validation issue with the device and Windows Update.
- Scheduled – The update isn’t ready to be offered to the device but it’s scheduled to be offered.
- On hold:
- Admin paused – The update is on hold because the Deployment being paused by an explicit Administrator action.
- ServicePaused – The update is on hold because of an automatic action by Windows Update.
- Admin Cancelled – The update offer was canceled by explicit Administrator action.
- Service Cancelled – The update was canceled by Windows Update for one of the following reasons:
- The end of service for the selected content was reached and it’s no longer offered by Windows Update. For example, the device might have been added to a deployment after the content’s availability expired, or the content reached its end-of-service date before it could install on the device.
- The deployment content has been superseded for the device. This can happen when the device is targeted by another deployment that deploys newer content. For example, one deployment targets the Windows 10 device to install version 2004 and a second deployment targets that same device with version 21H1. In this event, 2004 is superseded by the 21H1 deployment and Windows Update cancels the 2004 deployment to the device.
- Removed from Deployment – The update offer was canceled because it was removed from the Deployment by explicit Administrator action.
- OfferReady – The update is currently being offered to the device by Windows Update.
2. Export Feature Update report from Update Rings Profile
If you have an existing update ring profile and applied it to all your devices, you can discover the feature update version on those devices by accessing the “End User Update Status” in the “Monitor” section of the Update ring profile. To save this report as a CSV file, click on the “Export” button.
3. Export Feature Update report from Microsoft 365 Apps Admin Center
To get a report that includes the Feature Update version, you can enroll your devices in the Microsoft 365 Apps admin center Inventory Service. Once enrolled, you can export a report with various details, including the Feature Update version.
You have the option to filter the report and retain only the Device Name and Feature Update version, simplifying the report. The report provides a lot of information beyond the Feature Update version, such as Device make and model, OS Version, Microsoft Office version, Office Add-ins, User Name, User Email address, and more.
To check the Feature Update version of any device from the Microsoft 365 Apps admin center, follow these steps:
- Login on Microsoft 365 Apps Admin Center
- Navigate to the “Inventory” tab on the left-hand side.
- Data Insights > Devices, click on Show all devices. [Direct link].
Select any specific device, and a pane will open on the right-hand side. In this pane, you will find all the information about the device, including the Feature Update, which is labeled as the OS version.
3.1 Export Feature Update Report
You have the option to export an Inventory report in CSV format, providing information about the device, Office versions, and the OS version, which is essentially the Feature Update. Additionally, you can filter the report and remove any unwanted columns to customize the report to your preference.
