ms teams were sorry weve run into an issue

Organizations in the XXIst century rely on communication now more than ever, especially in a world where your staff is located not just in another building, but maybe even another continent altogether.

As such, tools that can improve the level of collaboration between employees can be crucial. That is where having a good collaborative tool can be extremely helpful.

One very good example of such a tool is Microsoft Teams, a free collaborative tool that comes bundled with the Microsoft Office Suite, but it can also be downloaded and used separately as well.

However, with all of its great features and toolsets, even Microsoft Teams is prone to the occasional issue.

For example, users have been reporting getting an error message whenever they try logging into it:

Microsoft Teams won’t sign in this morning. I just get the message that says We’re sorry-We’ve run into an issue. There’s a button to Try again. Also it says If That doesn’t work, try signing out and back in again. The Try again button doesn’t work.
