Overview of the Changes to the April 2014 Online Services Use Rights

CRM Online grabs the lion’s share of the changes to the April 2014 OLSUR so let’s look at that first of all:

  • April and May 2014 saw the launch of CRM Online Enterprise, Social Listening, and Dynamics Marketing, and so there are sections added for these new USLs on pages 14 and 15
  • As well as the individual USLs for Social Listening and Dynamics Marketing it’s confirmed that a CRM Online Enterprise USL also allows access to both services, and the CRM Online Professional USL allows access to the Social Listening service

And then there are a host of other updates:

  • OneDrive for Business: this is added as a product, and in related news, the SharePoint Online Extra Storage Add-on SL has a name change to the Office 365 Extra File Storage Add-on SL, and this 1GB of extra storage can also be applied to OneDrive for Business. See page 26
  • Office Web Applications: these are updated to “Office Online” and page 24 confirms that users licensed with Office 365 ProPlus USLs get access, as well as users of Office Professional Plus, Office Standard or Office for Mac Standard – as long as those licences have SA
  • Enterprise Mobility Suite: this new USL enters stage right and on page 29 we see that it allows access to the (also new) Windows Azure Active Directory Premium service and also, on page 35 to the (renamed) Azure Rights Management service
  • Yammer Enterprise: there’s confirmation on page 39 that access to this service is now included in the A2-A4 plans and also with the Office 365 Midsize Business USL
  • Office 365 ProPlus and Office 365 Small Business Premium: there’s wording added that confirms that the Office Mobile software may now be activated on up to five tablets as well as the existing five smartphones. See pages 16 and 23
  • Exchange Online Protection: the list of Office plans that give access to this service is expanded to include K1, and E1, E3 and E4 plans on page 20
  • Project Lite: this USL makes its debut on page 24
  • And it’s a final goodbye to Lync Online Plan 3 which is removed
