For students using Piazza's Network, the optional, opt-in feature to connect with employees may in some instances be inaccessible. This is not a required feature to participate in class.

Piazza is aware of these issues with the Network and is working on an update that will be instituted soon. We will update this KnowledgeBase document accordingly.
