Purchase Licenses

Here is an overview of the process required to obtain licenses for Calendar Pro:

  1. Estimate the number of users who will use Calendar Pro and, therefore, the number of licenses required. You can do this simply by adding up the number of people designing reports containing the visual with who will view them. For example:

    Designers Viewers Licenses Required
    1 0 1
    10 50 60
    10 10,000 10,010

    If you don’t get enough licenses, some of your users will see an unlicensed notification.

  2. Visit the Calendar Pro page on AppSource and press the Buy now button.

  3. Choose the plan that bets fits you requirements and press Next.

  4. Choose the billing terms, recurring option and the exact number of users to license.

  5. Complete the checkout by providing a valid payment method and confirming the purchase.

Assign Licenses

After you have purchased one or more licenses, you need to assign them to your users or Active Directory groups.

Anyone purchasing gets permissions to assign purchased licenses. If you are not the purchaser, you must be a Global, License, or User admin to assign licenses. To use group-based licensing, see Assign licenses to users by group membership in Azure Active Directory
If you purchased the license for yourself or other users, you can still assign it with the following procedure.

Follow these steps to proceed:

  1. Sign in to your Microsoft 365 admin center

  2. On the navigation menu, select Billing > Licenses.

  3. Click on Assign License and select the users or groups to assign the license to.

  4. Press Assign and you are done.

At this point the users you have selected will be able to use all the features of Calendar Pro.
