On July 28, 2022, at ~12:40PM EST, Microsoft communicated via tweet (@MSFT365status) that they've received reports from some admins in North America that they're unable to access the Microsoft 365 admin center.
For IT pros or system admins, additional information can be found under MO406459 in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
Less than an hour later, Microsoft shared an update that these issues are affecting admins outside North America:
"On Thursday 21st July 2022 at around 1am UTC, users of Microsoft Teams started reporting that they were unable to access Microsoft Teams. Users were unable to connect to the Microsoft Teams Desktop, Web client and Mobile clients. If users were logged in, some Teams features didn’t work.
Some People reacted on Twitter with the hashtag: #TeamsDown with mixed reactions, evidently it was pleasing for some people to have an excuse not to work.
The Importance of Office 365 Monitoring
