Summary of Dynamics 365 Editions and Licensing model

Whats new..??? Lets explore !!

Editions in Dynamics 365:

  • Business edition – Optimized for 10-250 employees
  • Enterprise edition  – Optimized for 250+ employees

Licensing model in Dynamics 365:

Dynamics 365’s primary licensing model is by named user subscription. Dynamics 365 user subscriptions classify users into two types. One user type is a “full user” and the other is a “light user”.

Full users are the users whose work requires use of the feature rich business apps functionality. In the Dynamics 365 license model, full users are licensed with either a Dynamics 365 Plan (Not available launch) or Dynamics 365 application (App) subscription.

Examples of full users are sales people, customer service representatives, finance employees, controllers, supply chain managers, etc. These users have also been referred to in the past as Pro users or Power Users.

Light users are typically the large number of users in an organization that consume data or reports from line of business systems and who complete light tasks. In the Dynamics 365 model “light users” are licensed with the Dynamics 365 for Team Members subscription.

Examples of light users activities are time/expense entry and HR record updates.
