    I don't have the app so didn't even notice. Important things can come to me via email. Why would you want the app in the first place?

    continuous integration / continuous delivery

    In this case, continuous delivery of unwanted notifications to users, because someone probably screwed up the coding of a loop, and it completely escaped the notice of whatever insufficient testing was in place before it got deployed.

    I guess somebody will soon be coding the check to make sure a user only gets sent one message. Just another example of how silly little errors like this no longer just occur on single systems within one company, but can now affect the whole world due to the wunderfulness of big cloud.

    Put More And More On Our Cloud

    I'm last to learn, as per, but I was told recently that as of Excel 2016, Microsoft encourages users to put shared Excel files on OneDrive

    ( rather than share them in-house ).

    How backward of users to think they should only use OneDrive when absolutely necessary.

    Just look at all the problems you get when you keep your stuff geographically local.

    Do they even have a rollout process?

    Do they even have a rollout process? Honestly, to me it seems inconceivable that someone within Microsoft wouldn't have tested this first, been spammed by notifications, and not rolled it out further. Oh well 8-)
