Microsoft 365 Suite Outage: MO222965

MOSTLY RESOLVED as at 29/09/2020 10:45

This morning there was a widespread outage across all Microsoft platforms which appears to be getting back to normal now.
Please advise your staff that they may still see glitches as Microsoft complete the rest of their service restoration.
If you wish to follow direct on MSFT’s site then is your best place.

We expect services to be available though there may also be some performance degradation as traffic is re-routed around problem systems in Microsoft’s Cloud infrastructure.

We can confirm that as of 10:45am this morning we have tested Outlook Emails, Access to, Teams, Teams Calling (phones), Outlook Online, SharePoint and OneDrive with satisfactory results.

If you continue to see issues then please restart your computer and retry your systems before creating a support ticket via email to Service Desk or via web form
