You need to pass another prerequisite: Passing Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate or Passing: Microsoft 365 Certified: Teamwork Administrator or Passing: Microsoft 365 Certified: Security Administrator Associate or Passing Microsoft 365 Certified: Messaging Administrator Associate

    1. Thanks for the update. I’ll update the post as well. This was written months ago during beta so I imagine some things have indeed changed. I appreciate it.
