The version 8 training environment is different relative to the system shown in the course videos. First difference noticed is in navigation. For example, in exercise to create new propositions, the menu options in course documentation and actual cloud environment are different. I noticed the discrepancy from start of course.
After selecting Proposition Management, the Student Guide (L-6854) indicates there should only be one Business Issue, Sales, and that under Sales there should be a Group called Phones. In the environment, there are multiple Business Issues, and no Group called Phones under the Business Issue called Sales.
People taking the course can probably continue on, and learn with these differences. However, since the content is new to most users, the differences can cause issues moving through course.
Thank you for taking time to provide feedback on the Pega Marketing Consultant course.
We are aware of such minor differences in the UI between the product versions. However, we believe that when a student completes the associated exercise, which is on the latest version of the product, and which also comes with a solution video, these minor differences will be clear, and the student can successfully meet the learning objective.
We constantly look out for any major differences in functionality between the versions, and when needed we upgrade the demo videos accordingly.
