Microsoft Action Pack subscriptions provide cost-effective access to full-version Microsoft software for internal use, technical communities, training, and marketing tools—benefits of membership that help you build your practice around Microsoft products and technologies. For more information about the Action Pack and your benefits, select “Microsoft Action Pack subscriptions” from the Membership menu on the partner portal.
Start using your internal-use software licenses for three key Microsoft products today and start talking to customers about how your solutions built on them help meet their needs for efficiency, cost effectiveness, business productivity, and more. Download your software.
Managing your Action Pack renewal
January through March is the most common timeframe for Microsoft partners to renew their membership in the Microsoft Partner Network. As an Action Pack subscriber, you have two anniversary dates—one for your general membership and one for your Action Pack subscription—each of which requires you to take action in the Partner Membership Center to avoid interruption in your benefits.
Membership and benefits assistance
For assistance with downloading your software benefits, renewing your subscription, and other Microsoft Partner Network membership activities, contact the Regional Service Center. Options are available online through the Microsoft Partner Network support page at http://aka.ms/uspartnersupport.
