Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (November 2019) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide. There are a number of changes which, as usual, you can find detailed in the Change Log on page 68. The most interesting ones include the addition of Digital Messaging – a new messaging Add-on for Customer Service Enterprise, licensed by user (page 19), and Chatbot Sessions for use with Azure Bot Framework bots, where each Chat and Digital Messaging licence receives an entitlement of 50 chatbot sessions pooled at the tenant level, with additional chatbot sessions available as an Add-on (page 31). There’s also some wording added on page 6 to clarify when logins are shared and individual with Device SLs.

Secondly, AI for Sales becomes Sales Insights, and there’s a new Call Intelligence Add-on which adds an additional 1,000 hours of conversation intelligence per month, detailed on page 51.

Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (June 2019) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide. Perhaps the most interesting information is on page 2 where we get some details on upcoming releases (Customer Service Chat, Forms Pro, and Call Intelligence), a name change (AI for Sales becomes Sales Insight), and a new segment (DoD).

These changes are all expected in July or August. There are also amendments for default capacities throughout, the most important one being confirmation that Sales/Customer Service Professional licences do not count towards the 10 licence minimum for the Dynamics 365 Portal.
