Transition Period for Redirecting Old Test Links and Account IDs
Why are old Test Links and Account IDs being redirected to a new 2023 version?
We are committed to providing the best possible user experience for our candidates. As a part of this commitment, we have decided to redirect old version test links to a new version on 9th October to offer improved features, enhanced performance, and a more seamless testing experience.
When will this redirection start, and for how long will it last?
The redirection of old Test Links and Account IDs to the new version will commence on October 9th. This transition period will last for a limited duration of 2 months. We recommend to start using the new test links by clicking INVITE button soonest to avoid delays and any issues.
What will happen when a candidate uses an old test link during this transition period?
During the transition period, if a candidate accesses an old test link, they will be directed to a temporary view. In this view, candidates will have the option to choose from one of your enabled test texts to type. Their results will appear only in the New Admin Panel . Your old admin panel only has the older data.
How the Test Link Redirection Works
Your test link in the format xyz.TypingTestPro.com will be 301 redirected to xyz.typingtest.com/migrated/
Basically this means that your old link goes to the new 2023 version and it is not possible to take tests with the old version any more.
Q: Will the old version test link still be active even after logging in to the new version?
A: Yes, the old version test link will remain active for 2 months if you login into your new Admin Panel.
This means that previous test takers can continue to use the familiar old link to take the test.
Q: Why should I use a new test link?
A: To ensure that your new candidates start using the updated version, it is important to send them a new test taker link or Test ID. Otherwise, they may continue to use the outdated version. Please note that the old Admin Panel version will only be available until October 9th. The data migration is only done from the old version to the new one. It means that when you share a test link of the new version to your candidates, their data only appears in the new version.

Q: What is the difference between Account ID and Test ID?
A: Both Account ID and Test ID are unique identifiers used to reference organizations and tests, respectively. The main difference between them is that Account ID is used in the old version of the system, while Test ID is used in the new 2023 version. If you're using the new version of the system, you should use Test ID instead of Account ID when referencing specific tests.
