Microsoft 365 admin center's Service Health Dashboard (SHD) shows the Microsoft 365 service health status. The absence of real-time alerts compels IT admins to keep an eye on the SHD to know about service outage, incident, and advisory that might occur any time.
With M365 Manager Plus by your side, you will never be in the dark about Microsoft 365 service outages and incidents. It monitors the health and performance of all the Microsoft 365 services 24x7, and sends out real-time email notification to the admin once a service outage, incident, or advisory is detected.
