When I click the "Admin Guide" link it just takes me to https://education.microsoft.com/en-us/resource/ddc1e300

My experience is the same as Tony; the guides do not appear, it just takes me to a general resource page.

Thank you for commenting @Tony Derricott and @Steve_Landry. We are working to resolve this issue and remove the duplicate link and apologize for the confusion. The IT and Educator guides are the same and are combined in the PPT deck linked to the Educator guide above. You can also use this link to download a PDF version of the guide. Thanks again!

@Tony Derricott  @Steve_Landry The IT admin link should work now. Please let me know if you can't access the pdf. Sorry for the issues - that was totally on me for not getting the file published correctly. :shaved_ice:
