Office 365 Upload Blocked?

Feel free to read my witty account, or jump right to the bottom for the directions on solving this issue quickly!!


Okay, so here's the scenario. So you open a Word doc or Excel spreadsheet and you notice a yellow band running across the top of the program. Within the band it says something like this "UPLOAD BLOCKED You are required to sign in to upload changes to this location." But it appears you are signed in. You look up at the top right of the program window and there's your name. You click on it and yep, sure enough, you're signed in alright. What the heck!! You decide, well I'll just sign out and then back in. That should do it. But...nope. That didn't work either. Well, how about restarting the computer. Maybe by some Microsoft magic, that will solve the problem....nope. "UPLOAD BLOCKED You are required to sign in to upload changes to this location." GRRRRRRrrrrrrrr.





Maybe like me at this point, you send a message off to Microsoft Office 365 Support, and ask them to give you a call asap because you don't have the time, energy or patience to wade through their universe of cryptic forum posts. When they call you back you spend the next couple of hours on a screen share, with a nice/cordial technician that is trying every trick they know in the book. As they direct you to copy and past the 10th code into Power Shell they say, excuse me one moment and put you on hold. Then come back and say let's try this.....
