• Post any PII information (email addresses, names, company addresses, MPN IDs) in forums or groups. If needed you can connect with Microsoft staff via direct messages. Identified PII content will be removed by admins. • Use the Microsoft Partner Community as a sales channel by posting content to solely promote your own products and solutions. Any solution created by our Partners, ready for sale, should be found on Azure Marketplace or AppSource. • Post technical support questions. Microsoft Partner Community is a destination for partners to engage in business discussions. The best place to get Microsoft support is the Microsoft Tech Community. • Post solicitation, spam, and/or content free posts not related to Microsoft partners or products. This is a place for all of us to learn and discover each other, not a place to reach customers. Violators may be banned from the network. • Be negative. Constructive feedback is good, but avoid personal remarks, sarcasm and blame. • Use crazy fonts, profanity, or ALL CAPS. All caps and strange fonts are annoying. Not only does it look like shouting, it makes others want to use profanity. • Wander off topic. No posting about sports, religion, politics or other things that don’t belong here. • Share content from a private group. Respect your colleagues and our acceptable usage policy. • Harvest user data. Some members may share personal information here. If you spam members from this network, Microsoft may take legal action.
