M365 Product license update for Competencies

Hi,

 

the license update announced for April 2021 does not describe if the changes also apply to the Communication competency.

 

Does anyone know if the Office 365 E5 licenses of the Communication competency will remain or will they be replaced by M365 E3 or E5?

kind regards

We have a resolution from Microsoft (support case 2106100040001966): "... In our case, when we are talking about a specific competency (Communications competency), you get additional Office 365 E5 licenses, while only the Security Competency still receives the Microsoft 365 E5 licenses.".

 

So, the Microsoft Office 365 E5 benefit is correct for the Communications competency, as stated in the competencies IUR document (updated April 2021).

 

Hope this helps if you have the same question.

We have exactly this same query and have raised a support ticket with Microsoft. I'll post back here when we have a response.

Hi Tanja,

did you get in touch with MS? If so, could they resolve this issue?
