The Microsoft 365 admin center's Service Health Dashboard shows the Microsoft 365 services’ health statuses. Though there is a separate option to create alerts under the Security & Compliance Center in Microsoft 365, it is not comprehensive. You have an option in the native tool to get email notifications about the health of services and endpoints, but you can’t customize those emails.

With M365 Security Plus by your side, you will never be in the dark about Microsoft 365 service outages and incidents. This Microsoft 365 auditing, alerting, and monitoring tool tracks the health and performance of all the services and endpoints 24/7 and sends out immediate email notifications to the admin once a service outage, incident, or advisory is detected. You can also customize the notifications as required.
