Q: Should I add the “Microsoft.com” site to the compatibility view settings in the Internet Explorer browser?

A: No, you should not add the “Microsoft.com” site to compatibility view settings in the browser. If it is added, the Learning Path site will not function as expected.

This should resolve the issue.

Q: I find that the training courses are not loading when I am trying to expand the learning paths. I refreshed the browser and it still does not load. What should be done?

A: First, check if you are using IE 10 or IE 11. If you are, remove “microsoft.com” from the compatibility settings list of Internet Explorer. This should resolve the issue.

Q: Who can create and edit company learning paths?

A: Only the partner users who have requisite privilege can create and edit company learning paths. If you need to manage the company learning paths for your organization, you should contact your organization partner administrator to grant you the training administrator privilege in the Partner Membership Center.

Q: How do I create learning plans for my team?

A: On the Learning Paths home page, you will see a link for “Create a learning plan for your team”. Click on that link to go to the Learning Plan application.

Through the Learning Plan application you can,

  • Create and edit team plans.

Q: In the Learning Plan application team plan step 3, will the assignee name fields accept special characters?

Q: How can I view the team plan progress and send reminders to the team members of the plan?

A: The plan creator needs to navigate to Learning Paths. Once logged in, click on the link for “Create a learning plan for your team”. Then click on “View all plans” and select the “Track Progress” button next to the specific plan to view the progress.

Q: Where can I see the assigned plans and also create my own individual training plans?

On the Learning Paths home page, when you are browsing the different learning paths, you can also use the “Add to Plan” option to add the specific learning paths to your own plans. These plans will also be listed along with your assigned team plans.

Q: I do not see the assigned team plan after I log in. Why?

A: You will see the plan only after you have accepted the plan. To accept the plan, open the assignment mail you received from plp@microsoft.com. Click on the link in the mail to go to the agreement page. View the acceptance terms and click on the “Accept” button to complete the acceptance of the plan. You will then see the team plan in the list of plans assigned to you.

Q: I clicked on the link in the mail, but I get the following error message: “Either you are not authorized to view this plan or the plan has been deleted from the system”. What does this mean?

A: This error comes up if the team plan completion date is past or if the plan creator has deleted it from the system. Check with your plan creator.
