  1. Hi,

    I bought the januari version and now I would like to update to the march version.

    Its extremely hard to figure out if I can update monthly for free. can you clarify this?

    1. Hi,

      We cover this topic in the FAQ:

      Q: Are updates to Office 365 for IT Pros free?

      A: ​Updates and corrections to the current edition are made available to subscribers of that edition free of charge. For example, the subscribers to the 2020 edition (published in July 2019) receive updates for as long as that edition was current. Our current plan of record is to release the 2021 edition in July 2020.

      So, yes, you have free upgrades until we release the 2021 edition.

  2. I’m unable to download this edition, as well as the 7th edition. I also wrote to you when that was released. We’re stuck at the 6th edition when we log in to Gumroad. It’s pretty frustrating!

    1. Issue handled in email. Basically (for others), if you have problems downloading the book and your have a valid Gumroad account, you should contact to resolve the issue. Gumroad are the only people who can solve account problems.

  3. If I originally purchased this book on Kindle, but can’t get an update even after contacting Amazon support, can I get a copy from Gumroad?

    1. Sorry, but no. This is the kind of problem that causes us to recommend that people buy the EPUB/PDF version. We have zero control over what Amazon does and no relationship with any customer (we don’t know if you bought a book). Amazon takes 70% of the book cost to have it on their platform and keeps all the data to themselves.
