Office 365 is one of the most used services worldwide.
Users are using it for simple tasks like writing a Word document, or for complex presentations in PowerPoint, and they count on Office to deliver the same experience every time.
But sometimes, you can encounter all sorts of issues and bugs with it, despite the continuous development done by the Redmond giant.
If you deactivate the licenses for any of the Office services, you may bump into unexpected problems.
