PowerShell Grid view is “sooo” much better than Exchange 2010 Tracking Log viewer in browser

Exchange 2010 tracking log viewer is great, but you can copy/export the results or even sort the results for different needs. So far Exchange admins are run the get-messegetrackinglog in power shell and export to CSV file using export-csv cmdlet. It’s great, but greater idea is grid view.

I found Power shell grid view is fantastic tool to view the tracking log results. The grid view results are sortable, filterable and copy/paste-able (to Excel).


To use the grid view simply pipe the get-messagetrackinglog results to out-gridview like this below.

get-messagetrackinglog –Recipient:xxx@company.com -Server “Exchange-HubTransport-Server” -Start “3/1/2012 7:40:00 PM” -End “3/4/2012 7:50:00 PM” | Out-GridView

Try it, you may end up liking it.
