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!
I had asked below question on msdn forums. i was advice to add it here.
Lets say two developers, working on same WP8 app, wants to upload/publish beta app on marketplace for testing purpose.
They should be able to do that using their own live id.
So lets say company already has an live id account. But can there be other, limited, administrator email addresses tied to this account ?
this is currently being worked on :)

Please fix this. It is strange that this is actually an issue.
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?
You need to fix this!

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.
Dick Jones commented
Is this for real?
Joon Choi commented
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 !

This is a must have for us for Windows dev to be a practical option.

This is a must for company account. It's too basic and too mandatory. Please it has to be done ASAP.

So it takes 1 year to mark this obvious issue as "under review" and more than a year to actually do something about it... Microsoft could have at least fixed this issue for the Office App Store which is brand new!
Still nothing, how wonderful. This is the exact reason our Windows Phone app has gotten significantly less updates than our iOS and Android version

One would think MS is a small company without resources. This basic functionality should have been there from the beginning, let alone two years after it was rolled out. Apple, Google, and even Amazon have this. It just doesn't make sense.
Unbelievable!! It is a very basic feature. Windows Phone Store is horrible :-(
