How Do I: Access and Use The Business Central Administration Center?

As explained here on docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/administration/tenant-admin-center#notification-recipients 

The Business Central administration center provides a portal for administrators to perform administrative tasks for a Business Central tenant. And as a partner, you can access the center from the Partner Dashboard in the Microsoft Partner Center.

Now, I have a Business Central tenant here: https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/e57bff73-f9b4-49b5-aea5-xxx, which I created as a trial, here: https://trials.dynamics.com/Dynamics365/Signup/BusinessCentral

That means I don’t have a partner, and I’m not a partner myself. So basically I don’t have access to the Partner Dashboard in the Microsoft Partner Center, so I can’t manage my tenant?

WRONG

Did you know that you can use the Business Central Administration Center by simply adding the word: /ADMIN at the end of your tenant URL?

So for example, my tenant URL is: https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx/.

Let’s put /ADMIN behind it:

  • https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx/admin
  • and see what happens:

So this means I now can:

  • See my current and next version no
  • Create a new sandbox environment with production data
  • Set the upgrade window
  • Schedule an upgrade date
  • Setup Tenant Notifications
  • Access Environment Telemetry
