Find and assist customers
Topic Last Modified: 2011-12-09
As an authorized Microsoft partner, Microsoft Online Services can help you build your list of customers by maintaining a database that tracks your customer details. You can assist your customers by administering their account, creating and submitting service requests, and resetting passwords.
When you want to contact a customer, you can locate the account by searching on user name or domain name. If you are a delegated administrator for your customer’s account, you can search for any domain name that is associated with the account.
To find and assist a customer, do the following.
In the header, click Partner.
On the Partner Overview page, click Look up user or domain.
When prompted, type either the complete user name (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the domain name (contoso.com).
The name you type must be an exact match, including the complete email address for users. Partial names and wild cards are not supported.
When a match is found, a results page appears with action links at the top of the page.
