In the current BPOS every time we need to manage a particular clients tenant we need to login seperately for each clients MOAC's site.
I know there is a PARTNER ADMIN CENTRE available but only to a select number of partners that meet a certain criteria.
In O365, will this issue be corrected so that any partners can access and manage client's tenants from any a single interface and the ability to login to this tenants with a single login for administering them?

Thanks for the feedback.
Abby & Justin,
Thank you for the source on that "Office365 Partner Portal" information. I was able to get a definitive YES that there will be a Partner Portal made available. It is being planned for a much broader scope than the BPOS version.
No solid word on criteria and it will not be available during open beta, but it is coming.
There have been many requests for a "partner portal" in Office365, but nothing has been announced at this point.
I aggree with the need to streamline admin access for partners, but there is a significant liability issue to be overcome in order to accomplish this.
I am sure there are and I most say very strongly that Microsft needs to find a way as I find the current management of BPOS portals to be a big annoyance and incovinience. Moreover, as I mentioned above a solution is currently available in the current BPOS but not accessible toall partners.
I suggest that Microsoft uses this module and expand its capabilities.
So can someone explain what the partner portal that is referenced in the partner experience module of the 365 Airlift actually represents? I was under the impression that this enabled a partner to manage all their tenants from a single portal?
Also, can someone explain how and when this will be available to partners, and what the criteria are to gaining access please?
Is there an update on the Partner Portal now that we are in GA? This is becoming vital as I move clients to paid status.
I agree. It is not viable manage clients by creating an admin account for each of them. I hope that a single dashboard, with access to all functionality will be available soon.
