Microsoft Project trial for Microsoft 365 users

Project for the web, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin: MC388541 · Published Jun 3, 2022

Message Summary

Earlier this year, the self-service trial (MC306669 Dec ’21) was rolled out for Microsoft 365 customers to try out Project. Starting in June 2022, Microsoft 365 users will also be able to try Project from “in-app” without payment. In this case, the in-app trial will be available either through Home in Project or in Planner – see the image below as an example. For future reference, in-app trials will become available in other Microsoft 365 apps, which you will receive notifications as these begin to rollout.

Note: These trial capabilities will be available worldwide except for India, starting first with the U.S. tenants. They are not available for Education or Government customers.

Key points:

How this will affect your organization:

Microsoft 365 users will see an option to sign up for a Project trial either from the menu of Home in Project or Planner using their AAD credentials. After the trial expires, they can either use a credit card to directly subscribe or contact their admin to acquire a Project subscription.
