To follow up on my original posting, O365 support reached out to see if they could internally extend our trial so that we would have more time to transition or determine what the plans were from MS Tech Community. This request was denied, with the reason being that we had already utilized several years of the trial license.
At this point, our user group is evaluating alternatives. Slack is looking more appealing every day.
