For those having troubles with the installation of their Office 365 subscription, Microsoft just made life a lot easier with a new and interesting tool: the Support and Recovery Assistant for Office 365.

The Support and Recovery Assistant for Office 365 is an easy-to-use app that asks you some simple questions, tests for some of the most common Office 365 support issues and attempts to implement resolutions on your behalf. While the current version is focused on some the more common scenarios people encounter with Outlook, the Support and Recovery Assistant will gain new troubleshooting and resolution capabilities in the future. The Support and Recovery Assistant is built to automatically update itself as these new capabilities become available, says Microsoft via its blog.
