Microsoft confirmed on its Microsoft 365 Twitter account that the minor outage, which affected Microsoft Teams, also crippled several Microsoft 365 services.
The company explained that the subsequent outage of Microsoft 365 only affected services associated with Teams integration.
“We’ve received reports of users being unable to access Microsoft Teams or leverage any features. We’ve identified downstream impact to multiple Microsoft 365 services with Teams integration, such as Microsoft Word, Office Online and SharePoint Online,” the company said on its official Microsoft 365 Status Twitter account.
According to the Microsoft 365 Service health status page, affected customers include Microsoft Teams (access, chat, and meetings), Exchange Online (delay sending mail), Microsoft 365 Admin center (inability to access), Microsoft Word within multiple services (inability to load), and Microsoft Forms (inability to use via Teams).
Others include Microsoft Graph API (any service relying on this API may be affected), Office Online (Microsoft Word access issues), SharePoint Online (Microsoft Word access issues), Project Online (inability to access), PowerPlatform and PowerAutomate (inability to create an environment with a database), Autopatches within Microsoft Managed Desktop, Yammer (impact to Yammer experiments), and Windows 365 (unable to provision Cloud PCs).
