Sign up for Windows Known issues Email Alerts



The Windows release health page, located within the Microsoft 365 admin center, provides access to up-to-date information regarding known issues related to both monthly and feature updates for Windows. These known issues are problems that have been identified within a Windows update and are impacting Windows devices. By accessing the Windows release health page, you can stay informed about these issues and leverage this information to help troubleshoot any problems that your users may be experiencing. Additionally, this resource can help you make informed decisions about when and how to deploy updates within your organization based on the scale and severity of the known issues.

This feature provides an advantage to IT teams when troubleshooting Windows-level issues. Previously, we had to check each endpoint to see which update was recently installed and then search for known issues related to the update. However, with this new approach, we can proactively receive information on all known issues related to the selected product in your inbox. This enables us to take a more efficient and effective approach to troubleshooting.
