How to create SRV Record for Microsoft Office 365 to the MyDnsCloud

The default instructions contained within Microsoft's Office 365 SRV record have not been updated and aligned with their new SRV Requirements.
As a result of this, creating the SRV records as per their instructions causes the Office 365 SRV validation process to fail.
 
We have documented the correct method of creating the required Office 365 SRV Records by adding the protocol type to the Host Name. 
 
Follow the below steps to create SRV records for Microsoft Office 365 within the MyDnsCloud.
