Accessing the new support widget can be done in one of two ways:

In the widget you will be offered two options:

  • Find solutions to common problems
  • Open a service request

Find solutions to common problems

The “find solutions to common problems” option includes articles that might be related to the question you may ask. Just start typing the question in the search box and articles related to your search will be surfaced.

In case the suggested articles are not sufficient, you can open a service request.

Open a service request

This option is available by clicking the icon that looks like a headset.

You will then get the following page to submit your support case

On this page, you fill in a title and description for the issue you are facing, as well as a phone number and email address where Microsoft may reach you. You may also include up to five attachments that are relevant to the issue in order to provide additional context for the support case. Finally, you select your time zone and an alternative language, if applicable. The request will be sent to Microsoft Support Team. Microsoft will respond to your service request shortly.

What you need to do to prepare:

This new support process will start to be rolled out as of July 20, 2020. When the roll-out is completed, the option to submit cases from the portal will not be possible.
