Administrative rights define permissions for system authority within the Membership Center. There are two types of Administrators:
Global Administrators have the authority to view and edit all the data associated to their Organization. A Global Administrator effectively controls the Headquarters Location, which then allows the Global Administrator to edit or manage all other Locations (since all Locations are associated to the Headquarters Location).
Location Administrators can change or manage any aspect of the Microsoft Partner program for their Location, and any associated Locations, if any. For example, a Location Administrator may assign MCPs to their Location, submit customer references for their Location, and may order and purchase benefits that accrue to their Location. Location Administrators can add/invite new individuals to their Location, or any Location under their control.
Non-administrators are associated individuals who do not have either Global or Location administrative rights. These individuals have limited permissions in the Membership Center. They can only view and edit their individual profile or MCP information, if any, and access the Partner Program Web site and other online benefits.
There is no limit to the number of Administrators that an Organization may have.
