Microsoft 365 license management
As a Microsoft 365 administrator, managing your users' Microsoft 365 licenses assigning appropriate Microsoft 365 licenses for new employees, freeing up Microsoft 365 licenses when employees leave the organization, and reassigning the freed up licenses to other users constitutes an important part of your day-to-day activities. Microsoft 365 license management is critical to ensure the optimum number of licenses are available in the organization and that you aren't shelling out money to buy more licenses than you actually need.
Manage licenses easily with ADManager Plus
ADManager Plus is a web-based tool that lets you manage your users' Microsoft 365 licenses easily without writing PowerShell scripts. You can manage licenses individually or in bulk with just a few clicks.
Add Microsoft 365 licenses: Adding Microsoft 365 licenses to users, especially to multiple users at once, can be challenging. To overcome this challenge, ADManager Plus enables you to assign new Microsoft 365 licenses for individual or multiple users by selecting the desired licenses among all the configured license plans. The available licenses in each license plan are displayed in the same window to facilitate easy tracking, and efficient license usage.
Replace Microsoft 365 licenses: When users change roles, they may need additional or a different set of Microsoft 365 services for their new role. More often than not, administrators have to replace users' existing licenses with a different license more appropriate for their needs. With ADManager Plus, you can change your users' Microsoft 365 licenses in a single click by simply selecting the license that should replace their previous licenses.
Remove Microsoft 365 licenses:
- Remove selected licenses: Using this feature, you can remove specific Microsoft 365 licenses that have been assigned to users.
- Remove all licenses: This feature allows you to remove all Microsoft 365 licenses at once, and at your preferred time.
Group-based license modification: Generally, users belonging to a specific group need the same Microsoft 365 features, and consequently, the same license plans. To help you easily manage licenses in these scenarios, ADManager Plus' group-based license modification feature allows you to easily manage the licenses of users belonging to the same group. You can identify users who belong to a specific group and modify their licenses in bulk.
