It would be great to support a downtime landing page.  This would go hand-in-hand with the downtime message that we can send to users in the system prior to the outage.


During an outage, there is no way for users to understand that the system is offline on purpose.  A simple static page showing the downtime was planned would be helpful - not everyone reads their email or was in the system prior to the downtime notification.


Something simple such as this elegant 404 page:

Thank you for your feedback.

This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap. We plan to add an incident/outage communication dashboard in Lifecycle services to begin with and we can look at extending that to the Finance and Operations app.

Sincerely,

PM,

Microsoft.

Mentioning this again. Its been an idea since 2017 and it is still not implemented. Our new system looks pretty unprofessional when you navigate to it during downtime and get 'An error occurred at (UTC) 11/22/2021 11:12:46 PM. RequestId: eff13854-bbfe-41cd-abfb-ee1d32b94ba3'.

Since you're allready planning this, you'll better be planning a publicly available status page as well!

This is very important, as users must be able to understand the diffrence from a system crash, and a planned outage.
