Investigations into the ongoing Microsoft Office slowness problem continue to be a key priority for UoD IT. As it stands, we still have a temporary workaround available, which has been largely effective in alleviating the symptoms of this particular issue for most people who have reported the problem to us.
Once again, we encourage anyone who is suffering from this issue to inform the Service Desk on firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that their situation can be assessed and the workaround applied if required.
We are currently still heavily engaged with Microsoft and we shall be carrying out some work on our infrastructure this week which they have recommended. We also continue to gather log data for Microsoft and will be passing some updated logs to them for analysis.
In the meantime, I apologise for the ongoing inconvenience and please do not hesitate to contact us regarding this issue.
