A new approach for Office 365 Planned Service Changes

There haven’t been any updates to the Office 365 Planned Service Changes posts in quite some time…essentially, since the pandemic started. The pandemic certainly played a significant role, but there were also other factors including the time required to monitor, compile and update the existing blog posts with the latest information. As a result, the process has been streamlined by using a wiki approach to sharing this information. As of August 5, 2020, all of the Planned Service Changes information will be posted and updated at the Office 365 Weekly Wiki. Notes: The Update Log has the latest additions and changes from August 5, 2020 – October 7, 2020. The primary Planned Service Changes posts have been updated with a link to the new site. If you have any feedback about the new approach, site, etc., please reach out via email – contact [at] office365weekly.blog.
