Problem with Applied Skills

Steel Contributor

Hello everybody.

What's going on with Applied Skills? I can see that many assessments are not available; yesterday I've also found an Applied Skill related to Microsoft Purview, but today it is not available anymore.

Thank you.

The issue you're experiencing with Applied Skills is due to a technical problem that was discovered during system maintenance. As a result, the Applied Skills assessment labs are temporarily unavailable. The Microsoft Credentials Team is aware of this issue and is working to resolve it as quickly as possible.

Create and manage automated processes by using Power Automate  applied skills exam is still in maintenance along with others.  This has been ongoing for months. Should we just expect Applied skills are not going to be working for the foreseeable future and stop checking on the status?

Hey @JamieNatley 

 

I totally understand your frustration with the ongoing maintenance of the Applied Skills assessments, especially when it's been dragging on for months. It can be disheartening to see them still not fully functional despite the initial estimates.

However, I'd say there's still some hope on the horizon. It's encouraging to hear that 10 assessments have been restored and updated recently. While it's true that there was a post indicating it might take up to 3 months, it seems like progress is being made, albeit slower than anticipated.

In the meantime, I'd suggest adding the assessments to your favorites and checking on them once a week. That way, you're staying informed without investing too much time and energy constantly checking for updates. And hey, considering these assessments are provided for free, it's definitely a gift worth appreciating, even if it's taking a bit longer than expected.

Hang in there, and let's hope for smoother sailing with the Applied Skills assessments soon!

Br,

Pete
