To support your efforts to deliver and deploy updates to the Windows devices being used by remote, onsite, and hybrid workers across your organization, and manage those devices effectively, we are continuing our series of weekly "office hours" for IT professionals here on Tech Community.

During office hours, we will have a broad group of product experts, servicing experts, and engineers representing Windows, Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune, Configuration Manager), security, FastTrack, and more. They will be monitoring the Windows servicing space and standing by to provide guidance, discuss strategies and tactics, and, of course, answer any specific questions you may have.

Next event:  Thursday, November 18th - 8:00-9:00 a.m. Pacific Time - ADD TO CALENDAR

How do office hours work?

Note: On November 18, Windows Office Hours will be part of Tech Community Live! Post questions up to 48 hours early here. We'll resume office hours in the Windows servicing community in December!

Simply visit the Windows servicing community and click Start a New Discussion. At the start of office hours, we'll pin a post outlining the individuals on hand, and their areas of expertise.

Have an issue or question you'd prefer not to discuss publicly? No problem. Simply click on the name of the person you'd like to speak with, then select Message in the top-right corner to send a direct message.

Can’t attend at the designated time? Again, no problem. Post a question in the Windows servicing community up to 48 hours in advance and add the "Office Hours" label. We'll make sure we review it during office hours.

How do I participate?

Office hours are text-based; there is no audio or virtual meeting component. To post a question, you just need to be a member of the Tech Community. If you haven’t already signed up, click Sign In in the top right corner of this site to join the Tech Community today.

Where can I find out about the next office hours event?

We'll continue to host Windows Office Hours every third Thursday. Bookmark this post (or https://aka.ms/Windows/OfficeHours) for the latest dates. We look forward to answering your questions!
