Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (June 2021) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide.

The Change Log on page 59 has the full details, and you can find the guide itself here: https://bit.ly/3uXqKDN.

Power Platform Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (June 2021) Power Platform Licensing Guide.

There are just two minor updates, the first being that the availability of the Power Apps Portals login Tier 3 Add-on is no longer just restricted to CSP, and secondly, Process Advisor is added.

Process Advisor helps organisations decide which parts of their processes it would be best to automate, and it’s licensed via a Power Automate per User licence – you can find out more about Process Advisor here: https://bit.ly/3g1GotB, and the updated Power Platform Licensing Guide here: https://bit.ly/2Rv0KSx.

Dynamics 365 Licensing Brief

There’s a new (April 2021) Dynamics 365 Licensing Brief.

Its intent is to answer some questions, address some complex scenarios, and provide product information that may not exist in other documentation.

If you’ve got a reasonably good knowledge of Dynamics 365 licensing then it’s probably worth a read from start to end (it’s only 8 pages) to see if there’s any new information for you.

Power Platform Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (May 2021) Power Platform Licensing Guide. There are two main changes – some updates to some of the Dataverse capacity included in licences, and some updates to terminology – “entities” are now “tables”, “records” are now “rows”, and “API requests” are now “Power Platform requests”.

Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (May 2021) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide. The first change of note is the amending of the term “entity” to “table” throughout, in line with the updating of some terminology in Dataverse – find details here: https://bit.ly/2Rls5WM. And the second change is the introduction of Electronic Invoicing transactions – see page 32. 100 transactions per tenant are included with Commerce, Finance, Project Operations, and Supply Chain Management licences, and there’s an Add-on available which adds an additional 1,000 transactions per month. Note that transactions do not roll over between months and customers must license for peak capacity.
