Office 365 - Request Group for Administrative Access

This document explains how an administrator would request a Manifest group which will be used to collect/group NetID accounts to administer. This can be used in conjunction with making a domain request or when a specific set of people need to administer a NetID account.

As an example, you may use an administrative group to administer NetID accounts in the Wisc Account Admin site (assign alternate email addresses, set forwards, etc...) after users have granted you that administrative access. For more information on requesting and granting administrative access to NetID accounts, please check out the documents linked in the "See Also" section, at the end of this article.

Important: If you are a domain administrator, you already have access to a domain admin Manifest group which can be used for this purpose - learn more.

Note: If you're trying to administer a service account, please see Office 365 - Managing Authorized Administrator of a service or resource account document.
