Turn on Forms for a group

Hi,

 

I work as a consultant for a large health care organization (~12 000 users).  For them, it is imperative that not all users, though they have E3-licenses, can create and share Forms. Is there a way to activate Forms for only a specific group of users? I already know that it can be done per user, but that would be an impossible task to manage efficiently.

 

Regards, Margareta

You could try group-based licensing 

 

You can assign one or more product licenses to a group. Azure AD ensures that the licenses are assigned to all members of the group. Any new members who join the group are assigned the appropriate licenses.

When a product license is assigned to a group, the administrator can disable one or more service plans in the product. Typically, this assignment is done when the organization is not yet ready to start using a service included in a product. For example, the administrator might assign Office 365 to a department, but temporarily disable the Yammer service.

There are some options here. Doing it one by one isn't effective.

 

You could 

 

1.) Look to use Powershell

2.) Look to use this tool: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Office365-License-cfd9489c 

 

Both should be able to remove/add in bulk.

 

Hope that answers your question

 

Best, Chris

Thank you, looks like it can help me a lot :-). Could you refer me to some examples of Powershell commands for this particular scenario?
