Hi, I want to know if there is a way to change from a single user to shared computer licence, after a user has already registered their details to the device. Ideally with having to reinstall. 365 proplus. Can I redistribute the config. Xml and clear the existing registered user?

@rob driscoll You can use Group Policy Settings to force machines to Shared Computer Activation, so no reinstall is required (check out https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/overview-of-shared-computer-activation-for-office-365-...). To remove existing activations, have a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/activation/reset-office-365-proplus-activation-... which describes how to remove (and automate) the removal. Removing the activation is required to make SCA work.

Thanks for the response, I'll get right on to this in the morning.
