Self-service trials for Microsoft Project and Microsoft Visio

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC306669 · Published Dec 18, 2021

Message Summary

Beginning on January 26, 2022, customers, and individuals without global or billing admin rights can sign up for Microsoft Project or Microsoft Visio 30-day trials before directly purchasing subscriptions or engaging their IT procurement team.

Note: These trial capabilities are available worldwide except for India. They are not available for Education or Government customers.

Key points:

How this will affect your organization:

Once available, users’ existing business logins can be used to sign up or request licenses for the following trials on their established tenants managed by their organization.

Eligible subscriptions* include:

  • Project Plan 1
  • Project Plan 3
  • Visio Plan 1
  • Visio Plan 2

Global or billing admins: Admins can use the same self-service purchase controls to disable self-service trials while making use of subscription management capabilities to oversee and manage trial licenses on the License page in the Billing section of Microsoft 365 admin center. If admins disabled the self-service purchase functionality for Project and Visio in the past, self-service trials sign up for individuals or departments automatically will allow users to request licenses directly from you.

What you need to do to prepare:

Review your current self-service purchase configuration and ensure it is set appropriately for the experience appropriate for your organization.

Discover more on how to manage self-service licenses acquired by individuals or departments in your organization by reviewing Manage self-service purchases (Admins) | Microsoft Docs.
