Dynamics CRM Online – Introduction
Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides flexible, high value, and simple-to-understand licensing for Dynamics CRM in the cloud. The multi-tiered licensing model offers a variety of benefits, including:
• Flexibility. Customers can mix and match various types of user licenses within a deployment to accommodate the specific needs of their businesses.
• High value. Customers can choose from highly competitive licensing offerings to optimize the Total Cost of Ownership.
• Easy-to-Understand. Customers can obtain licenses based on the functionality that users require (rather than how users access the application).
• Choice. Equivalency in the licensing use rights of online and on-premises licenses makes it easier for customers to compare and decide what works best for them.
User-based Subscription Licensing Requirements
Internal and External Users
With Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and Parature, from Microsoft, each internal user who will access the service must be licensed with a User Subscription License (USL). Access by external (third party) users is included with the subscription; these users do not require USLs unless using Microsoft Dynamics CRM client applications and graphical user interface (GUI). Third party users are users that are not either (i) the customer’s or the customer’s affiliates’ employees, or (ii) the customer’s or the customer’s affiliates’ contractors or agents. In this sense, the definition of third party users does not extend to onsite contractors, vendors, and users performing business processes on the customer’s behalf.
Microsoft Dynamics Marketing and Microsoft Social Engagement do not distinguish internal and external users in their licensing terms. You must license external users as well as internal users who will access these services.
Note: Offsite vendors are considered external users when their time is shared in between multiple customer organizations (for example, IT support service vendors serving multiple customer organizations) and they are not in an
Licensing Requirements for Internal Users
You license access to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM service by purchasing a USL for every internal user
who will access the service.
Note: Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online does not support device-based licensing.
USLs are assigned on a “named user” basis, meaning each user requires a separate USL; USLs may not be shared.
The USL grants users non-perpetual rights (with no buy-out rights) to the use of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM service. As long as you are current on your subscription payments and adhere to the Terms of Service, you will have access to the most up-to-date version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
The license includes access rights to the default Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online instance included in the subscription account, and every additional Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online instance associated with the same Azure AD tenant. For more information on Azure AD tenants, please see here.
Other Product Licenses
Licenses for Microsoft Dynamics CRM do not include licenses for other products that may be required for your installation; product licensing rights for these must be established separately. For example, a user needs to be properly licensed for Microsoft Office products to be able to edit Microsoft Excel charts embedded in Microsoft Dynamics CRM . The following resources can help you to determine the required products:

Microsoft License Advisor Tool: http://mla.microsoft.com/default.aspx
Multiplexing is the use of hardware or software (including manual procedures) to reduce the number of devices or individuals that access or use the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service by pooling connections.
Multiplexing does not reduce the number of licenses required to access the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service. Any internal user who accesses the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service—whether directly or indirectly—must be properly licensed. For example, internal users accessing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online data indirectly through a Portal or other service must also be properly licensed.
Pooled connections use a non-interactive user account in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online that can access the system but only via the web service layer. A non-interactive “user” who is not a person does not need a license.
However, all users of the pooled connection do require a license.
Exception: Users with a Microsoft Dynamics AX Enterprise USL have the right to indirectly read Microsoft Dynamics CRM application data without a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online USL. They are, however, not licensed to copy
such data to Microsoft Dynamics AX, nor access the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Interface.
Note: Licensed users may manually rekey information (when coming from non-licensed users) into the Microsoft Dynamics CRM service. This scenario is not considered to be multiplexing.
Dual Use Rights
One of the advantages of Microsoft Dynamics CRM is the option to deploy either in Microsoft’s Cloud as CRM Online or in a private on-premises or partner-hosted cloud with CRM Server. In some cases, customers may want to deploy both modes simultaneously, for migrating a CRM Server deployment to CRM Online, running private Dev/Test deployments in Azure, or other applications. In the past, customers had to acquire both CALs for CRM Server and CRM Online USL’s to allow such hybrid deployments. However, with Dual Use Rights, CRM Online Users no longer need to acquire CALs to access CRM Server instances.
Users licensed with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online USLs have use rights equivalent to a CAL for the purpose of accessing equivalent on premises workloads. Dynamics CRM Server instances must still be licensed normally, as must all related CALs and supporting servers (e.g., Windows Server and CAL(s)).
Dual Use Rights convey Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server access rights to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online USL’s;
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server CALs have no reciprocal rights to access functionality provided exclusively to Microsoft Dynamics CRM USL’s, nor do Dual Use Rights imply equivalent capabilities between Microsoft
Dynamics CRM Server and Microsoft Dynamics CRMlicenses. For example, access to Microsoft Social Engagement capabilities are included with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional USL, but not with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Professional CAL as there are no equivalent CRM Server capabilities.
Dual Use Rights are conveyed through Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 and later Server licenses, so Dual Use Rights may only be exercised with servers licensed with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 or later. However, customers may use downgrade rights to deploy a qualifying server license with an earlier version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server and use Dual Use rights to access it with Microsoft Dynamics CRM USLs.
Available USLs for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online
Microsoft Dynamics CRM offers five levels of USLs. To provide you with the flexibility to license the solution based on how your users use Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online functionality you have the ability mixand-match these licenses within a deployment.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online also offers add-on user subscription licenses (add-on USLs), which allow for a user to add additional capabilities to an existing user license. Use of add-on USLs requires a pre-existing CRM subscription for the customer tenant, as well as a baseline CRM Online USL to already be assigned to the CRM Online user. User subscription add-ons may not be purchased or assigned without a standalone USL.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Enterprise
For your marketing and customer service departments, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Enterprise provides licensed users with access to all of the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional plus the CRM Online – Field Service Add-on, Project Service Automation Add-on, Microsoft Dynamics Marketing Enterprise, Microsoft Social Engagement Enterprise, and Parature Enterprise functionality.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional is the recommended choice for your sales teams. It provides licensed users with access to sales, service, and marketing capabilities for a significantly lower price than comparable offerings from other vendors1. Each CRM Online Professional USL includes rights to Microsoft Social Engagement Professional, Microsoft Dynamics Marketing Sales Collaboration, Unified Service Desk, survey results, and Parature Knowledge Management.
Subscriptions licensed through Microsoft Online Services Program (MOSP), Open Program, and Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Program require a 10-seat minimum purchase of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional to qualify for Microsoft Social Engagement functionality. There is no minimum purchase of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional required for Enterprise Agreement customers to qualify for Microsoft Social Engagement functionality. There is a minimum requirement of 5 CRM Online Professional USLs per tenant to qualify for full mobile offline sync functionality .
Users of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional and Enterprise USLs may read AX application data, but are not licensed to copy such data to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, nor access the Microsoft Dynamics AX interface.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional Add-On to Office 365 provides the same set of capabilities and services as Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional, at a discounted price for customers with qualifying Office 365 licenses. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional Add-On to Office 365 licenses may only be assigned to users to whom a Microsoft Office 365 Plan E3, E4, E5, Business Premium, or Enterprise Cloud Suite license (either full USL or Add-On USL) has also been assigned. Qualifying Office 365 licenses may be purchased and assigned at the same time or prior to the purchase of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Add-On to Office 365 and must be assigned to the same users.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Basic
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Basic is designed for entry level CRM users who need access to basic CRM functionality such as accounts, contacts, leads, case management, Interactive Service Hub, and reporting and dashboards. This license is also designed for business analysts who require reporting capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Essential
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Essential is designed for organizational users who are not necessarily tied to sales, services, or marketing functions but require access to activities management, feeds, custom applications, accounts, contacts, and reading knowledge articles.
Microsoft Dynamics Employee Self-Service
Microsoft Dynamics Employee Self Service is a cloud-based knowledge management solution that provides authoritative, accessible and consistent knowledge for all employees to address important and common employee needs and inquiries, for cross-organizational scenarios like Human Resources and IT helpdesk portals, or for role- or function-specific knowledge bases. With an effective knowledgebase, you can deliver the right answer, at the right time, across multiple channels including portals, devices, productivity tools and enterprise applications. This license is intended for employees submitting cases on their own behalf, for self-service as a support client, but does not grant rights to case management as a support agent on behalf of an end customer.
A Microsoft Dynamics Employee Self-Service licensed user may access CRM data from online and on-premises Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployments. Capabilities vary by available functionality for a given Online or On-Premises deployment choice. Employee Self-Service knowledgebase capabilities require at least one user to be licensed with either Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional, or Parature Enterprise if Parature is leveraged for the knowledgebase. Microsoft Dynamics Employee Self Service is not licensed for Microsoft Dynamics CRM’s user interface and users will not be provisioned as CRM users; access is only allowed via portal or another application.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Essential and higher provide the right to use custom entities. Custom entities may be based on entities included in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, or created by a customer or partner. If the custom entity is based on or replicates the functionality of entities included in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, or if the entity links to entities included in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, then users accessing the custom entity must also be licensed to access the included or replicated entity. In other words, customizations may only be performed against entities users are licensed to access.
The following provides a summary of the use rights associated with each of the five USL levels. For a detailed comparison, refer to Appendix A.
Additional Services and Software
Microsoft offers additional services and software that work in tandem with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, including Microsoft Social Engagement, Microsoft Dynamics Marketing, Parature, from Microsoft, Interactive Service Hub and Unified Service Desk. With the exception of Unified Service Desk, Interactive Service Hub, Voice of the Customer and Mobile Offline capabilities, these are separate services that you can license independently or as part of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Field Service Add-On USL
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online – Field Service Add-on is a subscription plan add-on for users who will engage in Field Service activities; leveraging tight integration between CRM case management and field service work orders to deliver business process driven, best in class field service management.
As an add-on, this license requires each field service user to first be licensed with a CRM Online Basic USL or higher for the core CRM Online use rights. For those in need of advanced sales or service capabilities, the user may leverage this license as an add-on to the CRM Online Professional USL.
Users of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online – Field Service Add-on USL may read AX application data, but are not licensed to copy such data to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, nor access the Microsoft Dynamics AX interface.
The Field Service Mobile Application is a Microsoft application that is specific to Field Service, distinct from the Dynamics CRM Mobile Client Application.

This provides licensed users with capabilities required for setting up a project organization, engaging with customers, and managing and closing projects.

Marketing Connector for Microsoft Dynamics CRM is provided at no additional cost to licensed Microsoft Dynamics Marketing customers and synchronizes marketing data between Microsoft Dynamics Marketing and Microsoft Dynamics CRM (either online or on-premises). While a prior version of Microsoft Dynamics Marketing Connector required customers to separately purchase Microsoft Azure cloud computing services in order to run the Connector, this separate purchase is no longer necessary for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online; however, Microsoft Dynamics CRM customers must purchase Microsoft Azure cloud computing services in order to run the Connector.
Mobile Marketing provides organizations the ability to deliver marketing messages and campaigns to their customers via SMS. One license of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Enterprise or Microsoft Dynamics Marketing Enterprise is required to purchase and enable this functionality.

Adding Access to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online for Microsoft Dynamics CRM On-Premises Users via the USL for Software Assurance
If you have Microsoft Dynamics CRM CALs covered by active Software Assurance (SA), you can add access to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online by acquiring the USL for SA licenses, thus protecting your on-premises investments in Microsoft licensing, and permitting you to maintain non-perpetual rights to online service for the duration of your service agreement.
USLs for SA are available for purchase through the Microsoft Volume Licensing Enterprise Agreement, Enterprise Subscription Agreement, and Enrollment for Education Solutions (under a Campus and School Agreement).
For each User CAL or Device CAL to which you assign a USL for SA, you will receive a CRM Online USL.
Pricing for the USL for SA is set to provide credit for your SA investment.
• The USL for SA must be used for the same user of the User CAL. The USL for SA cannot subsequently be transferred to another user unless the corresponding CAL is also transferred to the new user.
• The USL for SA level will correspond to the CAL level. For instance, a Professional CAL with USL for SA will be granted the Professional USL use rights.
• Device CALs that you have purchased as part of an Enterprise Agreement or Enrollment qualify USL for SA on a 1:1 basis: One Device CAL qualifies for one USL for SA.
The USL for SA model includes two parallel agreements:
- A new or existing Software Assurance agreement that the customer will continue to maintain and renew, and
- An additional USL for SA License Agreement that provides rights to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service.
The following Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online USL for SA licenses are available for Microsoft Dynamics CALs active on Software Assurance:
Transitioning from Microsoft Dynamics CRM CALs to USLs under the Enterprise Agreement
As part of ongoing efforts to simplify licensing and respond to partner and customer feedback, Transitions have been removed from November 2015 Enterprise Agreement Enrollments. CRM Online “For SA” Add-ons, which recognize customer investments in on-premises licensing, are the recommended path for customers interested in licensing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online services during the term of their Enrollment.
Transitions will remain available as quoted for customers with active Enrollments (versions 2011 through 2014) for the remainder of their Enrollment term.
