Office 365

Office 365 license management

As an Office 365 administrator, managing your users' Office 365 licenses—assigning appropriate Office 365 licenses for new employees, freeing up Office 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. Office 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.
