Office 365 new Partner Admin Center feature

The new Office 365 Partner admin center provides Partners new and enhanced tools to manage their Office 365 customers.  The new Office 365 Partner admin center is rolling out to partners worldwide over the next few weeks.  Previously, with Partner tools in the Office 365 admin center, you could perform delegated administration tasks on behalf of customers and create trial invitations, purchase offers, and offers for delegated administration.
