@Jenny_Horan so in 2024 what is the alternative of this certification? What certification we should study for and get an exam?

Hi @emrecet35,
The certification and exam are retired and we've just launched a hands-on Applied Skill "Build collaborative apps for Microsoft Teams" that you may be interested in.

@Jenny_Horan it says it’s currently undergoing maintenance. Do you know what timeline will be until we can take the assessment exam?
