When it is required to reassign a Windows 365 License there is a 7 day grace period that kicks in before that license is available. This does not work well when off-boarding employees and the cost to add more licenses to cover this gap is expensive. Can Microsoft allow the admins to immediately deprecate a license so it can be used for another user. Another option would be to open a support case and have Microsoft Support remove the license from the user in question. Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.
