The problem is that there is no standardized way to do this, so people do it in different ways. One common approach is to send an invitation such as "Jon Out of Office" for 7:00 AM, and invite everyone in the group. Team members can then accept it, but it ends up pinned to 7:00 AM on the calendar instead of showing as an all-day event.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Another approach which works is to create an invitation for an all-day event, send it to everyone on the team, but have it show as "Free" instead of "Busy" or "Out of Office" on the calendar. That way, it won't book co-workers' time for the day, making my day off show up as Busy on their calendars.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>This approach works....but it's basically a workaround. You have to create a second calendar entry to actually block the time on your own calendar. It'd be great if Outlook had some native functionality for this. Other ideas would also be very much welcome.&nbsp;</P> Thu, 16 Sep 2021 01:32:53 GMT JonathanToyota 2021-09-16T01:32:53Z scientific numbers in excel sheet <P>I have a set of data in excel sheet which has 25 digits in each cell.

Since I had never done the full 100/200/300 exams, I thought it would be fun to do those before the changes in June, which I did (and it was fun). I was quite surprised that my transcript then showed me being double certified, i.e. I had an active certification for both my old and new exam passes.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Ok, but that was good, since it meant I could try the new Learn certification renewal for my old certs, right? True enough, before summer I got emails for the expiring certifications with links to Learn. I thought I'd postpone those until after the vacations, but now when I go to Learn my old certs show up as:</P><UL><LI>Microsoft Certified: Azure Developer Associate (Legacy)</LI><LI>Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate (Legacy)</LI><LI>Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert (Legacy)</LI></UL><P>Their links have a suffix -erlr: <A href="#" target="_blank">,</A>&nbsp;which gives 404. Going to the /renew urls show my cert expiring in 6xx days, which is of course the expiration date for my new certifications.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Before summer I checked that I was able to launch the renewal for my old certs in Learn (got screenshot to prove it), so I trusted that I can return to that now in the autumn. That seems not to be the case anymore, so is this a bug or did I blow my chance at trying the new Learn renewal? Is it possible to enable the renewal for my old certs, since I would like to familiarize myself with those professionally (Azure advocacy and guidance in my org)?</P> Wed, 18 Aug 2021 18:54:27 GMT Antti Seppälä 2021-08-18T18:54:27Z Login Problems partner university <P>Hi,</P><P>I need to take an exam in Partner University for an Azure certification.

Want M365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate cert? <P>&nbsp;</P><P><EM><STRONG>I have had rigorous and comprehensive IT training in CompTIA A+ over the years</STRONG></EM> (from mid-2016 to mid-2021 today) from another learning website that helped me obtain it successfully (; I started out on my path to obtain my CompTIA A+ initially at PC Age Career Institute in Iselin, NJ (where I completed 8.0 credits for about $4,000 through a government grant in mid-2016) to prepare for the two exams needed to obtain the cert (just before they were changed and updated; so I was in a race to pass the two exams before they were replaced). This is where I was introduced to the before mentioned learning website ( as they used it to facilitate the learning process. I did great on both exams through self study after my courses ended and became certified in mid-2019; though it took quite some time because at some point I worked a part time job outside of IT and I wanted to ace the exams none the less.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I first became aware of Microsoft’s support website from a past contract job years ago, that lasted a little over a year, as a desktop support technician where I would use their knowledgebase to aid in solving issues end users had with their OS and apps.&nbsp;At some point afterwards I found it hard getting a job in IT so it was recommended by my career counselor that I get a certification to aid in finding employment.&nbsp; However, I did have a <STRONG>bachelor’s of science in BMIS (Business Management Information Systems)</STRONG> which helped me land the job that I mentioned above but the type of work I wanted to do now was requiring certification more and more. So, I pursued my first cert&nbsp;(CompTIA A+) as mentioned earlier .</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>With that being said, I stumbled upon "Microsoft Learn" not too long ago while increasing my skillset in Active Directory, among other Microsoft product offerings, using Microsoft docs (home for Microsoft’s technical documentation) and joined and become an active member. That's how I found out about Microsoft Learn looking for ways to learn more about how to use Microsoft products, which I am a big fan of (my fav), in the work force. They also have a majority share of the market in regards to end users as their products are used all over in businesses today.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>With that being said, now has a new offering (as of 2021) to aid in passing Exams MD-100: Windows 10 and MD-101: Managing Modern Desktops to obtain the Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate cert. I’m seriously considering taking their newest offering as it would be a natural continuation or progression for me from their previous CompTIA A+ offering. Or should I obtain the&nbsp;fundamentals certification&nbsp;Microsoft 365 Certified: Fundamentals first?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I have used Microsoft Learn to get started on their path to the MS 365 cert, unknowingly though, getting into advanced topics of their product offerings relating to administrative tasks but I am still figuring how to use their platform to help obtain the cert. As, I am already familiar and thrilled with and its true to life simulations, instructional videos, text lessons, quizzes, and certification exam prep materials. <STRONG>However, Microsoft Learn will definitely be an essential part of the process (they give the exams and offer learning paths).</STRONG></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>So, in closing, my questions for the Microsoft Tech Community are:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><UL><LI><STRONG>First</STRONG>, most importantly, was anybody like me whom had their CompTIA A+ cert first and wanted to get their Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate cert next as it has no proposed prerequisites and it certifies you to do desktop administrative tasks among other things: to engage in and retain gainful employment, stay current and be future-ready, and secure an in-demand job in the current job market as the COVID pandemic unfolds?</LI></UL><P>&nbsp;</P><UL><LI><STRONG>Second</STRONG>, has anyone obtained their Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate cert already and if so, what learning resources did you use to obtain it successfully?</LI></UL><P>&nbsp;</P><UL><LI><STRONG>Third,</STRONG>&nbsp;should I obtain the&nbsp;fundamentals certification&nbsp;Microsoft 365 Certified: Fundamentals cert first before I consider obtaining the&nbsp;Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate cert? Which I'm now considering doing.</LI></UL><P>&nbsp;</P><UL><LI><STRONG>Or fourth</STRONG>,&nbsp;can I get the cert with average past work experience in IT, though not specifically in tasks covered in the cert, and rigorous training and self-study in CompTIA A+ (a foundational cert in IT)? Or, is it only recommended for someone who has a current job doing some of the said tasks covered in the cert before they try to obtain it? As, I want to acquire it to be able to do the tasks that it covers and hopefully land a doing them.</LI></UL><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I’d appreciate the community’s honest and thoughtful feedback as this is a cert that interests me.&nbsp;</P> Mon, 16 Aug 2021 23:53:23 GMT AndrewITPro 2021-08-16T23:53:23Z Cannot access from Lab virtual machine <P>Hi everyone.</P><P>Within the Learning path "Explore computer vision in Microsoft Azure", part of the AI-900: Microsoft Azure AI Fundamentals, in the Unit "Classify images with the Custom Vision service" there is a Lab Virtual Machine from which <STRONG>when trying to access the training images from <A href="#" target="_blank"></A> the Edge browser displays this error message</STRONG>:<BR />The connection for this site is not secure<BR /> sent an invalid response.<BR />Try running Windows Network Diagnostics.<BR />ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Is there any configuration to modify in the VM not mentioned in the Lab instructions?</P><P>Is it something wrong with this VM?&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I could not follow the exercise.

You can find the info about the article right below with the following link:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>First of all, thank you Microsoft and Microsoft Learn for giving me/us this opportunity!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A few weeks ago I received the first email from Microsoft that I can renew the AZ-500. A few days later I received the email that I can also renew the AZ-104. Of course I wanted to take this opportunity as soon as possible!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>But I don't know about you, are you still top informed about the exam topics? Honestly, I'm not 100%. Sure, I produce a lot of videos on YouTube, for example on the AZ-104 exam, but that doesn't mean I read through exam topics every day.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For this reason, I have chosen the following strategy:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>1. From both exams (AZ-104 and AZ-500) I have read the latest exam topics quite carefully!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>AZ-104<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Skills measured AZ-104<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>AZ-500<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Skills measured AZ-500<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P><BR />2. With this information in my "luggage" I was able to get an up-to-date overview. With this knowledge, I then went on to the Microsoft learning paths to close the gaps in my knowledge or to renew my knowledge. Of course I didn't have to work through all the modules but nevertheless, I will list all the links to the modules below:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Learning paths for the AZ-104<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P><BR />Learning paths for the AZ-500<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P><BR />3. Another source of information that I would definitely recommend is <LI-USER uid="278133"></LI-USER>&nbsp;'s website. A professional who works at Microsoft and provides super helpful information.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank"></A></P> <P><BR />I know you've probably read and heard this many times: read the exam questions slowly and accurately. Well, that was the key to success for me. It's the details that make the difference between success and failure.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>One final tip: When you have learned something new, try to explain what you have learned to another person (whether or not they know your subject). If you can explain it in your own words, you understand the subject. That is exactly how I do it, except that I do not explain it to another person, but record a video for YouTube!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Once again, a big thank you to Microsoft and Microsoft Learn for providing us with this renewal opportunity!</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>I hope this information helps you and that you successfully renew the exam. I wish you success!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Kind regards, Tom Wechsler</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Mon, 05 Jul 2021 12:59:05 GMT TomWechsler 2021-07-05T12:59:05Z Error in Power Bi <P>I recently started using Power Bi.
