Dynamics 365 simplifies licensing of business applications. The primary licensing is by named user subscription. The Dynamics 365 user subscriptions classify users into two types. One user type is a “full user” and the other is a “light user”.
Full users are the users whose work requires use of the feature rich business apps functionality. Examples of full users are sales people, customer service representatives, finance employees, controllers, supply chain managers, etc. These users have also been referred to in the past as Pro users or Power Users. In the Dynamics 365 license model, full users are licensed with either a Dynamics 365 Plan or Dynamics 365 application subscription.
Light users are often large number of users in an organization that may consume data or reports from line of business systems and who complete light tasks like time/expense entry and HR record updates. In the Dynamics 365 model “light users” are licensed with the Dynamics 365 for Team Members subscription.
