Hi Diane, 


Yes, we can merge accounts. Can you PM me a link to each account and let me know which one you would like to continue to log in to?


Thank you!

So I have yet to receive a single email from this network.  It appears my settings are configured correctly to email me, and nothing is turned off.


This is a personal microsoft account (gmail) rather than an Org ID

This is a gmail account. No mail is in the spam folder at all. It is not in my account anywhere.

Hey @Brent Ellis - please check your junk folder. Our team is aware of the SPF check issue and it is being addressed. Let me know if you still don't see the emails.

Anyone else noticed this? I get this on multiple PC's. I'm always signed into my O365 account, other services such as yammer and OWA will just load, but every day open "Microsoft Tech Community" I'm "signed out" until I click sign in.


Just me?

When I click on alert.JPG I see a drop down list of notifications. So I review the list but the notification count does not decrease or go away.

Came here to post about this very thing. Glad to hear a fix is being investigated. It's pretty annoying :-)


Please clear the alert count once opened the drop down.

Also, as of now (not intended), to clear the count click on "See All Notifications" at the bottom. You do not need to click on every notification item. 

We're aware of this and working on a fix ASAP! Thank you!

I'm not seeing where to upload images, per the directions in the Avatar link. Says its in my profile but I'm not seeing it. Help please!

Not sure if this was reported or not as I was using IE11 on Windows 10 I noticed this message referencing IE10 and older. :-) - for now I need to jump on Edge or another browser to use the site. It worked in IE11 on Win 7 by the way.

I have several tenants and so now have at least two accounts here on the technical community. Is there any way to combine or some guidance on which account to use?

Anyone heard an update on this? I have two, and I'm getting confused.
I decided to use a personal account so that I won't be affected if a tenant account closes or I change jobs.
