    Dear Insights Team…
    There is an issue with accessing the today’s quiz. Even without attempting once, it says that I had already attempted and hence can’t give it again. Also I haven’t got the issue of non-accesibillty of a quiz after an attempt ever before..
    Kindly suggest how to get access…
