The Microsoft Online Customer Portal is scheduled to be offline for upgrades and planned maintenance.
The portal will be offline on Saturday, October 10 from 10:00 to 11:00 Pacific Daylight Time (17:00 to 18:00 GMT). During this downtime, organizations will not be able to set up trial accounts, buy subscriptions, or modify current subscriptions. This downtime will not affect the availability of an organization's online services, such as Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Office Communications Online, so users can continue to access these services as normal.
