RELEASE: “Shared computer activation” for Office 365 ProPlus

Ever wanted to activate a specific computer/device with Office 365 ProPlus without being worried about per user licensing?

Announcing “shared computer activation” for Office 365 ProPlus in Microsoft 365

Shared computer activation lets you to deploy Office 365 ProPlus to a computer in your organization that is accessed by multiple users. Here are some examples of supported scenarios for using shared computer activation:

  • Three workers at a factory share a computer, each worker using Office on that computer during their eight-hour shift.
  • Fifteen nurses at a hospital use Office on ten different computers throughout the day.
  • Five employees connect remotely to the same computer to run Office.
  • Multiple employees use Office on a computer that’s located in a conference room or some other public space in the company.

Normally, users can install and activate Office 365 ProPlus only on a limited number of devices, such as 5 PCs. Using Office 365 ProPlus with shared computer activation enabled doesn’t count against that limit.
