Some tips:

  1. turn off blockers in your browsers (if you have any)
  2. “network issue”… yess, the system is overloaded … refresh & try again, and again ;-)
  3. you see “selected recipe is invalid...” message? Your preview failed (98% network issue). Try again, or just go ahead.
  4. “failed to lock this transform” message? probably the transform is finished (check the dataset) if not, run it again. [yes, the same network/overload issue]

Thanks for sharing these great tips, @BBB! Refreshing the page or trying again indeed usually does the trick.

Previewing the transformation is a best practice we strongly recommend. However, as you’re saying: if there’s a network issue, don’t worry. You can skip the preview step and continue with the course.

Good luck with the rest of the path and the assessment!
