I am trying to determine which MS account to use when logging in to certain MS sites/sub-domains. I understand when to use my work account for certain MS/Azure services and when to use my personal account for others.
Specifically, what account type (personal or work) does MS recommend that I use when logging into the support sites, primarily techcommunity.microsoft.com + docs.microsoft.com as well asl, answers.microsoft.com and support.microsoft.com ?
For developers/IT, when should we use a work login which may be transient vs a personal account for the aforementioned support sites, taking into account that we would like our badges, comment history, subscriptions and certifications to be preserved and cross-referenced into the future?
Below is a list of frequently used MS Sites grouped by the MS account type that I most commonly use to login with; Is this correct?
If there a reference which outlines the implications of using work vs personal accounts when logging in to Microsoft sub domains, azure services, shared office services and MS support/community sites?
Is docs.microsoft.com the only subdomain that simulates the merging of the work and personal account? (See Figure 1 below)
Personal Account linked to Work Account: (See Figure 1 below)
Personal or Work Account:
Work Account Only
For reference I have reviewed, the difference between MS personal Account / Work accounts is explained . Also Q&A vs Techcommunity + Difference with Microsoft Tech Community + Microsoft Technical Community vs. Microsoft Q&A which discuss the differences & usages between the current forums, most of these point FAQ for MS Q+A
Figure 1: My work and personal account can both be used to login
