License requirement for the Media and Entertainment Accelerator

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Hello,

The Media and Entertainment Accelerator (MEA) is supposed to be supported on Dynamics 365 sales and Power Apps.

I would like to use the accelerator to create faster entities ( event, sessions, guest,...) to manage events.

But I am sure of the required licenses...

-> Can we use it with Dynamics 365 for sales professional?  This version of Dynamics is limited to 15 custom entities. Or do we need Dynamics 365 for sales Enterprise because of the entities restriction?

-> Can we use it on Power Apps ( per app license)? Correct me if I am wrong but I think we cannot use Marketing lists and quick campaign without having a Dynamics license?

-> Do we need Dynamics for Marketing to use the accelerator or is the MEA a "solution" to give more features than the default sales app but less than choosing for Dynamics 365 for Marketing ?

Thanks for you help on clarify this.

    After you've installed Dynamics 365 media and entertainment accelerator, you'll need to configure it. First, activate the cloud flows for each of the solutions installed with the accelerator... Then integrate Microsoft Teams and allow automated Teams meetings and scheduled live events.

    Hi Elison,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    This accelerator requires a Power Apps/Dynamics 365 Sales license.

    There is no license required for the Media and Entertainment Accelerator. You can access and use it with your existing Power Platform or Dataverse license.

    Yes, the entities from the Accelerator are "Standard" entities and won't count in your 15 custom entities of the Sales Pro License.

    Ok, so  you can confirm the entities created by the accelerator do not count in the max 15 entities of the sales pro license? I can create 15 other custom entities in my CRM + use the accelerator with added entities?

    If yes, that's cool as I first rejected the option to test the accelerator because of the number of custom entities...
