New to the Partner Dashboard

Partnering with Microsoft gives you access to new opportunities to transform your business. On the Partner Dashboard you can purchase and renew the Microsoft Action Pack and you have easy access to information about competencies and how to achieve them.

We're gradually inviting partners to manage their membership in the Partner Dashboard at their MAPS or Competency anniversary date, as well as when key Partner Dashboard capabilities are available and proven to meet the needs of their business. For now, plan to renew and manage your membership in Partner Membership Center (PMC) until you receive an invitation to move.

Get your MPN ID

To do business as a Microsoft partner, you need an MPN ID number. This indicates that you have formally enrolled with Microsoft in the Microsoft Partner Network. Also, you use your MPN ID to enroll in the Cloud Solution Provider program and other partner programs as well.
