Microsoft is making some changes to how Microsoft 365 licenses are managed. Starting June 30th, Microsoft will require a minimum license quantity for annual subscriptions. Month-to-month subscriptions will still be available, but at a 20% premium.
What Does This Mean for Me?
For most of our clients, very little will change. Your annual subscription will continue to be billed monthly, and your monthly total will scale up as you add more users.
The biggest change: Microsoft will no longer allow you to drop below your minimum license commitment.
What Do I need to Do?
If we manage Microsoft 365 for your company, let your account manager know the number of licenses you’ll need for the year (June 1, 2022 – May 31, 2023). Please let us know by May 25th.
Remember, licenses can be added, but they cannot drop below your minimum commitment. Be sure to order enough licenses to cover your current staff. Any user without an active license will lose their email address.
If we do not hear from you by May 25th, we’ll use the number of active licenses from your Microsoft 365 account as of May 30. Please reach out to your account manager with any questions! If you purchase Microsoft 365 licenses directly, be aware of the upcoming changes. They will take effect June 30th, so be sure to plan accordingly!
