Power Apps licence assignment

Microsoft have made a number of changes to assist in the assignment of Power Apps licences to users that need them.

In April 2023 users were able to request a licence when they needed it (https://bit.ly/43cMw87), in May 2023 a maker was able to request a licence for users of their app (https://bit.ly/49dHATh), and in September 2023 an IT admin could set up an auto-claim policy that automatically assigns available licences to users as they need them (https://bit.ly/48UUeqH).

The latest innovation (November 2023) is that auto-claim policies are automatically created for a managed environment.

Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (May 2023) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide with just a couple of minor changes. Firstly, for Business Central, the maximum number of companies that may be contained in an environment is now limited to 300, and secondly, the Voice Channel User SL is added to the Default Subscription Capacity table on page 39, showing that each licence accrues 35 GB of Dataverse File capacity.

Increase in Universal Print capacity allocations

Universal Print is a software-as-a-service printing solution that runs entirely on Microsoft Azure and eliminates the need to maintain traditional on-premises print servers or install printer drivers. Customers licensed with Windows 10 Enterprise E3. E5, A3 and A5 or Microsoft 365 A3, A5, F3 and Business Premium receive 5 print jobs per licence per month which are pooled at the tenant level, and from 1st May 2023, users licensed with Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 will receive 100 print jobs per licence.  If additional capacity is needed there are Add-ons available providing a further 500 print jobs per month.
