Office 365 - Domain Administrator Access

Office 365 domain administrators are UW NetID accounts which have administrative access to add, delete, and modify accounts in a Office 365 domain (e.g. department.wisc.edu).

Domain administration is controlled by a Manifest group. Each domain will have one Manifest group associated with it. Any member of this Manifest group will have the ability to administer the domain. By using Manifest to manage your group of domain administrators, you have control of the group members and can also use a single group for multiple domains or other non-Office 365 purposes.

Domain administrators will be able to perform the following actions.

Instructions to use Manifest for Office 365

  1. Log into the Wisc Account Administration site with your NetID credentials.
  2. Select the desired domain you want to access from within the "Domains" listing.
  3. Select the Domain Properties menu item from the menu on the left.
  4. At the bottom of the Domain Properties page, there will be a listing of domain administrators. This listing will include the domain administrators Manifest group that has administrative rights over the domain. Make note of this group name to update the group members in the Manifest interface.
  5. Log into the Manifest administration interface and add/remove Manifest group members to provide/remove domain administration privileges.
