In September 2020, Microsoft announced two promotions which entitle Enterprise Agreement and CSP customers to free Audio Conferencing licences. The changes listed on the Product Terms site for 1 February 2021 (http://bit.ly/3prduoo) confirm that these promotions are now extended to 30 June, 2021 from the previous end-date of 31 March, 2021.

From 1 February, 2021 Planning Services days and Training Vouchers will no longer be allocated on new or renewing Software Assurance, and thus they are removed from the Product Terms website. Customers can redeem existing days and vouchers through December 2021, and the Software Assurance website is useful for further information: http://bit.ly/2kXtbbA.
Microsoft announce new security and compliance offers for Frontline Workers.
These workers, until recently known as Firstline Workers, are those users who have jobs on the frontline of their businesses and have different technology needs to desk-based users.
Now organizations who have licensed their Frontline Workers with Microsoft 365 F1 or F3 can add separate Microsoft 365 F5 Security and Compliance offers for $8 per user per month each, or a combined license which costs $13 per user per month. These offers are available from 1 February, 2021 and are available through the Enterprise Agreement and CSP partners.

The Microsoft Product Terms site launched on 1 July, 2020 with the aim of ultimately replacing the Product Terms and Online Services Terms documents.
The new site allows customers to filter content and review only the use rights and conditions relevant to their needs, to save a downloadable version of the use rights, to compare older use rights to the current ones, and to choose to use one of 35 different languages.
If you haven’t looked at this site yet, then it’s time to prioritise getting to grips with it since the existing Product Terms and Online Services Terms documents won’t be available after 1 February, 2021.
