All our users have Office Business Premium and each of them mostly work on their own computers.

However, manning the front desk is a task that is shared between some users.

Do I really need ProPlus on top for all the users that are using the front desk computer or can they each have that computer as one of their 5 Business Premium activations?

That is licensed per user, so their use rights will extend to that computer,. Check on this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/overview-of-shared-computer-activation-for-office-365-...

Correct! Every user can utilize office on this machine if they don’t already used their 5 devices included in their license

One thing to watch out for when users share a computer like that is making sure they log out when they leave.

Each person should always be using their own account when sharing a machine

Depending on what they do, they may be able to just use the online web apps in the browser and that machine may not need Office deployed onto i.
