When opening the exercise pane, the example is supposed to be an exercise to work on an Expenses case. Upon logging into the Design Studio sample login (Developer01), the only case available is the Candidate Case.
This is seriously hampering my training if I cannot actually work on the correct sample. I have tried clearing the cache and several browsers to see if there is a compatibility issue. Please advise as I have limited time before the entrance exam (7 July) and I am just getting started.
You are posting this in the "Pega 7 Fundamentals" forum so I'm assuming you are doing this course? I'm also assuming the "entrance exam" you mention is the Certified System Architect exam? If it is then Pega 7 Fundamentals is not the right course to prepare for the exam!
As for the reason why you don't see the Expenses case, it's because you will need to create it as part of the exercise for the lesson "Creating a New Pega 7 Application". If you had not done so then you will obviously not be able to see the Expense case.
