Dynamics 365 CE License Types 

Mix and match Dynamics 365 user licenses by individual apps, or by a plan that covers all Customer Engagement apps.  

  • By App – License individual users by a base application defined by their role e.g. Customer Service or Sales. For Sales and Customer Service apps, choose between Enterprise or SMB (Professional) capabilities to only pay for what you need. Attach one or more apps to a base licence for usage needs that require multiple apps at a discounted rate.

PowerApps Plan Licensing

As an alternative to licensing first-party Dynamics 365 apps such as Sales or Customer Service, streamlined hubs can be deployed which use many standard Dynamics entities and support unlimited custom entities. Apps can be built using the same Unified Interface with data stored in the Common Data Service to connect with other apps and services. 

Build a PowerApps hub to handle a specific workstream, for example to manage assets, training courses and many other examples which are licensed using a PowerApps Plan licence at a significantly lower price compared to a Dynamics 365 first-party app.
