There’s an updated (June 2022) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide.

There’s mention on page 1 of the new licences for either Digital Messaging OR Voice Channel to step-up to Digital Messaging AND Voice Channel, and there’s a bit of extra detail added on page 44 clarifying that preparing periodic financial statements for customers is not considered an outsourced business service.

Finally, on page 41 there are some changes to the Operations Database capacity entitlements. Firstly, initial capacity for the tenant is up to 60 GB from 20 GB. Secondly, there are increases to the accrued capacity per User SL for Operations-Activity and Operations-Device licences as well as for Finance, Supply Chain Management, Commerce, Project Operations, and Human Resources licences. There are some other minor clarifications too which you can find detailed in the Change Log on page 60.

Dynamics 365 Voice Channel

Microsoft announce the availability of Dynamics 365 Voice Channel, an additional app for the Customer Service module, helping organisations to offer a continuous, personalised customer experience across all communication channels.

AI plays a big part with AI-based routing of calls to the best skilled agent, automatic transcription and translation of calls for agents, as well as live customer sentiment analysis.

Power Virtual Agent also has a role as a chatbot, or as an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system allowing customers to select menu choices through the telephone keyboard or their voice response.

From a licensing perspective, it’s licensed via a User SL for users already licensed with a Customer Service Enterprise licence. Alternatively, customers also needing the Digital Messaging app can now buy a combined Digital Messaging and Voice Channel User SL. Voice Channel relies on Intelligent Voicebot Minutes and Call Intelligence Minutes and initial capacity is included in the Voice Channel licences, as well as being available as additional capacity.
