Default Bad Links?

Is there any indication when or whether the links in this book will be fully functional? Most of the links I have tried result in HTTP 404 errors (e.g., http://aka.ms/ScrumGuide - the first link from Ch. 12).

Thanks.

Hello TknoGeek,

My apologies. I've fixed the link you provided and will check the rest of the book links today.

Thank you for your support.

Hello there,

Thank you for you post.

I apologize for the link errors.
I've corrected the bad redirect link and will review the others.

Sweet! I tested several of the links that were problematic and they're working now.

Thanks for the quick response!

Default All links still not working

These links still don't work:
http://aka.ms/MSFAgile13
http://aka.ms/AgileDOD
http://aka.ms/MSFCMMI13

These just so happened to be three I tried from chapter 11. You should probably search the text for all aka.ms links and verify them. They appear to be hit and miss, or in my case, miss and miss. On a good note, the ScrumGuides link does work.

Thanks

Thank you. I'm on it.

Brian

Update: I've checked all the links so they should all be good.

However, due to the way the redirect tool works as well as some URL changes, the best URLs for the following items are now as follows:

http://aka.ms/CustomizingProcess is now http://aka.ms/CustomizingProcess13 is now
http://aka.ms/ReportPerms is now http://aka.ms/ReportPerms13
http://aka.ms/TeamProjectUpgrade is now http://aka.ms/TeamProjectUpgrade13
http://aka.ms/TFPowerTools is now http://aka.ms/TFPowerTools 13
http://aka.ms/tfpt is now http://aka.ms/TFPowerTools13
http://aka.ms/TFSExcel is now http://aka.ms/TFSExcel13
http://aka.ms/TFSProject is now http://aka.ms/TFSProject13
http://aka.ms/TFSQueries is now http://aka.ms/TFSQueries13
http://aka.ms/TFSReports is now http://aka.ms/TFSReports13
http://aka.ms/TFSWebAccess is now http://aka.ms/TFSWebAccess13
http://aka.ms/WICustomLinks is now http://aka.ms/WICustomLinks13

We apologize for any inconvenience.
