Microsoft 365 in IUR Bundle?

Hi There,


Microsoft are pushing us pretty hard to sell Microsoft 365 and yet it's not included in our IUR bundle. We're Silver for SMB Cloud and ISV so get plenty of licences for Office 365 E3 and EM+S but those two subscriptions DO NOT 'make' Microsoft 365 Business (no Office 365 ATP, etc.) Presently, we have to buy M365B in-order to learn how to use it! Madness.


Please replace our O365E3 entitlement with M365 ASAP.





It now has happened, see new IUR license list from January 2021: Internal Use Rights cloud and software benefit (microsoft.com)

Microsoft 365 Business Premium is now included in Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency!

Kind regards, Janosch

Please check your benefits in the partner center. You will see the Microsoft 365 E3 added for Silver or Gold competency (core).
Additionally you will get incremental with
Cloud Productivity,
Security (E5)
For S&M Cloud Solutions (O365 services option) you'll get Microsoft 365 BP + Business Voice.
For the new S&M Cloud Solutions (Cloud Business Applications SMB option) youl'll get Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Please check the link @JanoschUlmer provided and download the document for Silver and Gold competency. There's no change in the Action Pack. Also note that corresponding Office 365 + EMS + Microsoft Intune + Windows 10 Enterprise licences will be removed from competency benefit packages.
