Hi All,

 

-I am currently looking to setup a boardroom for our several Desktop based users. 

-We need a way to setup a room so that non-laptop users can come and sign into their o365 accounts and use any resources they require and join a teams meeting.

-We presumed we could have a dedicated PC in the room and have all users use this computer.

                            -Unfortunately, this would consume each individuals o365 E3 licenses. 

-Is there any way we can create this scenario without changing the licensing type for 0365.

Thanks,

The ultimate is a Meeting Room System Meeting Room Systems, VoIP Phones, Headsets | Microsoft Teams

 

But that aside, you can use a single PC, but will need to implement kiosk licensing for that computer to keep from using the other licenses.

@Ed Woodrick 

Thanks for the reply!,

 

Would the kiosk licensing allow the multiple users continue to access their o365 accounts without consuming their individual licenses? 

 

@pauly1105 Hi, have a look at the Shared Computer Activation or Device Based Licensing, whatever fits your organization's needs.

Hi @ChristianBergstrom ,

 

Thanks for your response!

 

I have read the attached article which was insightful. If we needed multiple users who can access the same device with office, to view and share files over a teams meeting... would you personally go with the device base licensing? 

 

 

Hi, I would go for SCA and it sounds as if that would fit your scenario as well (at least with the info given).
