Stuck? Maybe you need to update permissions. Here's how!

Are you stuck, and you don't know why? It could have to do with the steps, but it could also have to do with updates to Learning Lab. 

 

Sometimes, GitHub makes updates that add more opportunities for apps like Learning Lab. If Learning Lab wants to use those (things like webhooks and permissions), then Learning Lab explicitly needs your permission as a user.

 

You might get stuck and not know why! This is typically because the app is missing a permission it needs. You should have received an email saying Learning Lab was requesting additional permissions but I know those can be easy to miss. You can fix this by:

 

1. Going to https://github.com/apps/github-learning-lab

2. Click *Configure*

3. Select the account from the list

4. Scroll down to the Permissions and Repository Access section and look for a notification that permissions need to be accepted.

 

Once you've done this, you should be able to disable and then re-enable pages to move forward in the course. If you're still having troubles after doing this, let us know in another post.
