In the recent weeks, I have seen a lot of topics in the Dynamics Community forums asking about what are the capabilities of the Dynamics 365 Team Member License, and what actions can or cannot be performed with this license. I have decided to summarize the details from the licensing guide regarding this licenses to be able to answer some of the questions that arise.

The Dynamics 365 for Team Members subscription is a named user subscription designed for users who are not tied to a particular function, but who require basic Dynamics 365 functionality. This license includes read access as well as some write access for select light tasks across all Dynamics 365 applications for a given tenant. As a result, as more Dynamics 365 applications are adopted across an organization, any user previously licensed with Team Members subscription would be licensed already to access those additional applications.

The Team Members licensed user may access Dynamics 365 data from Dynamics 365 for Operations and Dynamics 365 Plan 1 Applications.

The Team Members license grants a user the following Dynamics 365 for Sales, Dynamics 365 for Customer Service, Dynamics 365 for Field Service, or Dynamics 365 for Project Service Automation rights for their own use and not for, or on behalf of, other individuals:

·         Write access to Accounts, Contacts, Activities, Tasks and notes

·         Record time and expense for Dynamics 365 for Project Service Automation, and apply for projects

·         Set up and manage the knowledgebase and Interactive Service Hub

·         Update personal information

·         User Reporting and dashboards

·         Edit Custom Entities

·         Participate as an end-consumer of Dynamics 365 services such as responding to surveys, or applying for projects
