Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (September 2023) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide. The biggest amendment is for the changes to the licensing of Marketing and Customer Insights, and you can find the details of that on our blog here: https://bit.ly/3sEPkOq. Viva Sales is rebranded Sales Copilot, and there are some new Business Central Essentials Attach licences for Customer Service Enterprise, Sales Enterprise and Field Service Base licences, details of which you can find in the table on page 4.

General Availability of Viva Sales

Microsoft announce that Viva Sales is generally available as of 3 October, 2022. Viva as a brand is about improving the employee experience, with the Viva Suite aimed at employees in any role across a business.

Viva Sales, however, is tailored to improve the employee experience for a specific role – sellers – and it enables these users to use Office 365 and Teams to automatically capture, access and register data into a CRM system, eliminating the administrative burden of manual data entry.

Viva Sales is included in Dynamics 365 Sales Enterprise and Premium licences, and is also available as a standalone licence priced at $40 per user per month.

Dynamics 365 Sales Insights capabilities added to Sales Enterprise licences

Microsoft announce that Dynamics 365 Sales Insights capabilities are added to Sales Enterprise licences. It’s not the same capacity that you’d get with a full Sales Insights licence, but Sales Enterprise-licensed users can now make use of Business Card Scanning, Conversation Intelligence, Sales Accelerator, and Lead & Opportunity Scoring.

Find the announcement here: https://bit.ly/3sj4dmR, and find details of the capacity included and how it compares to a full Sales Insights licence on page 24 of the February 2022 Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide. Get that guide here: https://bit.ly/3uEes6G.

Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (August 2020) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide with two main changes.

The first is for the rebranding of Forms Pro to Dynamics 365 Customer Voice – find more info on our blog here: https://bit.ly/3abDtu0 – and the second is for the release of the new Dynamics 365 Sales Premium bundle, an offer combining Dynamics 365 Sales Enterprise and Dynamics 365 Sales Insights at a price of $135 per user per month, a saving of $10 over buying the applications separately.
