M365 Admin Center eases device replacement & support
Published Aug 04 2022 04:14 PM 10K Views

Built into Microsoft 365 Admin Center, the new Microsoft Hardware Support Portal* provides a centralized solution to self-serve Surface devices with the features like device warranty lookup, submitting device exchange orders and support requests.



Provides status of Surface device repairs order created by you on this platform, enabling you to track the delivery of any replacement devices. Access resources to help manage your devices, including troubleshooting, helpful tips, and the latest news from Microsoft Surface.


Warranty and Protection Plans

Add one or multiple devices at a time to view your current warranty and protection plans. Sort by coverage status, coverage type or device model.  The Hardware Support Portal allows customers to check the coverage status of their Microsoft devices. Customers can also sort their devices by coverage status, coverage type or device model.



Customers can use the Hardware Support Portal to open service orders against their Surface devices. Simply input a serial number or upload a CSV file into the portal, check the coverage status of the device, select the relevant issue type associated with the device, choose the proper service type (exchange or repair), then submit the order. After an order is created, the customer can track open orders or review past repair orders for their devices. We recommend running the Surface Diagnostic for Toolkit for Business before submitting the service order. The users may identify and resolve some of the issues themselves.
