Re: Welcome EdX Students!

Sandy,

 

there seems to be no way to contact the instructor.

My edx classes requires a business address (e-mail) to use some Power BI Service functionality.

However, I am disabled and habe no work e-mail.

I cannot  complete the coursework and would like to get some input on what I should do..

 

Would you have some advice for me??

 

Thank you, 

Jan

Hey Jan, 

 

If you are not able to complete this wonderful course only because you do not have work email, the only plausible solution is to create an e-mail account on "onmicrosoft.com".

Re: Welcome EdX Students!

I a new member on the course. I am getting some connectivity issues with my Power BI desktop account.

 

I have been able to create an edx account using my work email. however whenever I try to sign in using this credentials on the power BI desktop, it says its an unrecognized credentials.

 

I even try the workaround of Office365 trial but there also I am unable to create an account with my work domain --username@yourcompany.onmicrosoft.com -- it says "Not available: universityofmauritius. Try a different name." --- where would I get an acceptable company name?

 

Thank you in advance for attending to my concern.

Great Class, excellent content.

 

May someone help me reset the Power BI service sign in account?

I just forgot the password, and when trying to reset it, the website gets unresponsive.

 

Please help me gain acceess to finish labs 4, 5, 6, and 7 exercise 2, and complete the course.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!
