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!
Include the capability to support multiple users in the same account. Today each Dev Center account only supports one users. It needs to support more users to be able to
Can you create multiple dev accounts (all company type) using the same Company details in a particular country? Is there only a dev account linked to a company or you can have multiple dev accountsfor a company?
It would be great if one company could create several developer accounts and link them. This feature will allow to add several developers to the company account and prevent interference in separate projects.
It would be great to introduce a role of an administrator for company accounts. If so, administrators would be able to add developers to the account or remove them as well as assign different permissions to the developers according to their functions in the project.
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 ?
Allow multiple users to submit an app as a team. Microsoft's "Big App on Campus" event is a good example where this feature is necessary. Multiple students work on a single app together, but only one is able to submit it, so that one member must provide the other team members with all of the updates about payments and current downloads, etc. The team submission should allow the users to distribute the money as agreed upon or a default value of even distribution. Each member should have access to the information about the application, even the certification process. I understand that Microsoft wants users to use the business account for this, but at least allow it among student accounts.
this is currently being worked on :)

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

This is a major issue, competition app stores have this.
Brian Wilkins commented
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?
What is the ETA for this Clint Rutkas?
Jim Range commented
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.
David Plans commented
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.......
Farrukh Subhani commented
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.
olivier hergault commented
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 !
Alec Slayden commented
Please implement this. vital for team workflow.
barry chai commented
Wow. Wonderful. It's been a year long.
Dave Kilbey commented
This is a must have for us for Windows dev to be a practical option.
