How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Allow multiple Microsoft Accounts to manage a Dev Center Publisher account

For corporate accounts, sometimes there is a need for more than 1 live id to access the dev. center. For example, more than 1 person from development team needs access to the portal as well as the development lead. Currently, all these people need to share the same live-id which is totally impractical as it can be a personal live id of a manager and he is not willing to share it with others. It would be really nice if access can be given to other live ids as well!

        Absolutely unbelievable that this isn't fixed yet. "share an account"? The security folks should have had a fit.

        When will this be done? We have not added any of our titles that are on Android and iOS because of this. Fix this as soon as possible.

        The Apple, Google and BlackBerry Stores all have this capability, when can we expect this on Windows?

        1300+ votes, and it's been over a year since the last MSFT response on this... what is the status of this (popular -- currently rated #6) feature request?

        This is incredibly important for any business that needs to have multiple admins on an account. The lack of this functionality causes a huge bottleneck in our release process.

        Why hasn't this been implemented yet? Seriously, teams need multiple logins. Apple sorted this out years ago. Let's catch up?

        Most Microsoft partners / organizations have multiple developers for different apps etc. If we have one unified store for mobile and desktop apps we surely want to have ability to delegate to other colleagues / Microsoft Accounts permissions to manage apps on official Store as official registered company. Also it would be nice that we can use Azure Active Directy - Organization accounts (Office365 etc.) so we do not have to use private Microsoft accounts for doing company business.

        I just realized this after creating the account. I wont share my account with my colleagues. This feature is a must have for developer teams as several people will be handling the publishing process.

        I just checked my calendar. Its the year 2015 but all things Windows still feel like 1995.

        Just kidding, but seriously though. come on.

        Is this feature implemented yet? That's ridiculous that we do not have this feature yet. For a workaround, I've just reset my password and sharing it with my developers now.......

        For even a small business, sharing account information and passwords has never been a healthy. I agree that this is very narrow thinking and need to be resolved.

        If I understand it well, there can only be one MS account managing a submission ?
        This is ridiculous. No, more than ridiculous, it is pathetic !
