Office 365 Periodic Table

As you know Office 365 is not just Word, Excel, Powerpoint and email service

Now Office 365 is a full SAS platform (Software As Service)

Like the Periodic Table of Elements’ way of organizing elements by similar chemical properties, my Periodic Table of Office 365 is organized by families of apps. It shows everything available in the O365 ecosystem, regardless of extra cost or license type, plus a little taste of what it does.

New Service Health Dashboard for Office 365

Finally Microsoft has updated the Health Dashboard for Office 365 , lets first see how the old Health board look like

The old Health Board was actually annoying and doesn’t provide so much information, beside it wasn’t a user friendly dashboard

Now let’s have a look at the new Health Dashboard

The new Service health dashboard provides you with more relevant incident insights and features a new view that separates major business critical outages from others and splits them into two categories: incidents and advisories. This new view makes it easier for you to identify the issues relevant for you that you might want to act on immediately.

The biggest improvements come to light after you click on an incident or advisory to see more information. A summary is presented, with just enough detail to let you know what’s going on.

The “Show details” link takes you to a full history of the incident, with a timeline of updates as Microsoft investigates and resolves the issue.

You still can go back to the old Health Dashboard if you like “which i doubt” by clicking on “Go to the v2 Service Health page” on the New Health Dashboard

v2

This change has been rolled this out to First Release customers, and will begin rolling it out to the rest of Office 365. This roll out will be completed by the end of February.
