  1. Since this feature was discontinued then what are we supposed to use for Email notifications? has this been replaced by the o365 Admin app? can the app be configured to notify when those changes occur (Degraded, SErvice Restored, Restoring service, e,t,c?

      1. Why was this discontinued? Is there another way to get this feed information? I’m wanting to create a gadget in Service-Now so our IT Helpdesk can monitor O365 health status. This would be nice.

        1. If you have Systems Center Operations Manager, you can use the Office 365 management pack to pull the information in and then generate alerts and notifications as needed.
