To use the limited roles, we have to do this:

1. Go to the Office 365 Admin Portal

2. Select Users Active Users


3. Locate a user using search


4. On the Righthand side, Click on Edit User Roles


5. Next, select Limited Admin Role and then check the roles you want the user to have, one or many.


6. Enter an alternate email, same as you do/did for a Global Administrator account

It cannot be a email address that residen within the tenant
