      <blockquote><em><a href="#425299">In reply to lvthunder:</a></em></blockquote><p>The public Azure Status page says all regions are experiencing network infrastructure issues except for Azure Government.</p>

    <p>The running joke for Azure services…. down to Office '358' now so far in 2019. We're expecting it to be in the low 300's by the end of they year!</p>

    <p>Still having issues this morning. Ironically, on my calendar is a training event for Teams at work….. and none of us can join while at work. I’ve been using my Galaxy S10 hooked up to the monitor via DeX and probably will continue to have to today….. :/</p>
