    Hello Heather,

    I clicked the link but didn’t receive a form. The tech preview is showing on my dashboard as pending however. Does this mean my interest has been registered correctly?

    Thanks, Alex.

  2. If the Connect dashboard shows pending for Office 2010 Technical Beta Nomination then you are registered correctly.

    You’ll find out towards the end of July if you were approved.

    Dear all,

    I live in Paris, France

    I am a freelance professional trainer on MS Project. Half of my time is spent on MS Project so I am strongly motivated to see the new version of MS Project.

    Best regards

    I have looked at my dashboard and I don’t see anything pending on my dashboard. Can you verify if I have registered properly?

  5. If you are having issues with the Connect site, use the email link above and send me the details of what issue you are seeing.

    Note that if you have applied for access you won’t hear anything until the end of July.

    Also, if you’ve emailed me with issues, make sure your email is setup to receive mail from microsoft.com. I’ve had a few mails bounce back.

    Thanks

    I rec’d an invitation for the Office 2010 technical preview earlier this week. Last week, I registered using the nomunation form, my interest for the new Project 2010. When I go to the Microsoft Connect site, it shows that I am currently participating in the Office 2010 technical preview, however, I haven’t rec’d anything from the Project folks. Will it be a separate process?

    We are part of the Office 2010 Technical Preview but do NOT see Project 2010 in the DL area – we see everything else?  

    Is Project 2010 a separate program?

    Hello,

    I have registered correctly and the dashboard shows pending for Office 2010 – but it’s already August now – when can I expect the status to change?

    Thanks

    I click on the nomination form link and I recieve this error: "The invitation you are using belongs to another registered account. If you believe you received this message in error, please try using another Windows Live ID/Passport account or contact mchelp@microsoft.com for additional assistance."

    Thanks.

    Heather,

    It looks like the provided link is to the "personal" copy of the nomination form (which is already filled).

    Could you provide a link to the empty "public" form?

    Thanks!

  11. Ville says:

    Hello Heather – my Connect site is still showing status pending, we’re now past July – should the status be now something else than pending?

    Are the Beta bits already available for download?

    Thanks,

    -Ville

    Drat!  I think I missed the call for nominations.  

    Oh well, Heather, I hope you got enough suggestions from me at the last conference.  I was the last person in the lab and grabbed you and a colleague to discuss my thoughts.

    Regards,

    Michelle

  14. Sorry everyone, the Technical Preview is full. If you come to the Project Conference you will be able to learn all about Project 2010.

    I am an independent Microsoft Project consultant / instructor – currently developing two sets of instructional materials.  It would be very helpful to have a copy of the Release Candidate.  How can I obtain that?  Thank you, Lynn Frock, PMP and a Registered Partner.
