How to register for a community account

This article will share best practices for Power Up Program learners to create a community profile using an Azure Active Directory (AAD) account or a Microsoft Account (MSA). An AAD account can be an organizational account that you use for work or school, while a MSA account is tied to your personal email and personal Microsoft account. 

 

When you are signed in to the Power Up Program hub in your browser, you are using an AAD organizational account assigned to you as a learner. Because access to this account is finite, we recommend you open a different browser or in-private window to create a profile associated with an account you manage, so that you can maintain and grow your community presence beyond your learning experience. Read through different scenarios below to determine the best approach for you.

 

Scenario 1: You already have a community account that you use today in other Power Platform communities.

 

You can use the same community account to sign in to the Power Up Program Community as you use in the following communities. 

 

Simply open the browser where you're signed in to your preferred account and navigate to the Power Up Community and click "Sign In." 

 

Scenario 2: You are new to community and want to create a profile using an Organizational Account (AAD):

 

Step One:  Open a new browser window in an private or incognito mode or open a different browser. Navigate to the Power Up Program community and click "Sign In."

 

Step Two: Enter your organizational email account, then select Next. On the next screen enter the password to your organizational account that you are using to register for the community.

Step Four: Log in with your community account, using the username you chose in step three, and your organizational account password. This step associates your organizational account with your community credentials.  

 

Done! You are signed into the community!

 

Scenario 2: You are new to community and want to create a profile using a MSA Account:

Step One: In a separate or private browser window, navigate to the Power Up Program community and click on the “Register” button.
