About Microsoft Dynamics 365

A market-leading business management platform, Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a comprehensive suite of applications that are designed to help your business grow and transform to meet the needs of your customers and capture new opportunities. The different applications within Dynamics 365 are cloud-based and aim to breakdown the silos often experienced with ERP and CRM solutions.

About Dynamics 365 Human Resources

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources enables data-driven decision making, and instils a culture of collaboration, progression, and transparency – all in a way to make the HR function a center of operational excellence and employee empowerment. It enables customers to optimise compensation, benefits, leave and absence, compliance, performance feedback, training and self-service programs for workers. By leveraging the Dataverse and Power Platform, your HR team can operate with agility and easily extend the solution and its capabilities.

License options for Dynamics 365 Human Resources

So how is Dynamics 365 Human Resources licensed? To license the core Dynamics 365 business applications customers must purchase Base and Attach licenses for their users. The Base and Attach model is a way to save money on licenses. Each user must be assigned a Base license for an application and then be assigned Attach licenses for additional apps per user. For example, an organisation can have a Sales and Finance application but unless a user requires access to both, then the discount will not be available. 

If you were to opt for Human Resources as your Base license, the following licenses would qualify for a discount: Customer Service Enterprise, Customer Service Professional, Field Service, Project Operations, Sales Enterprise and Sales Professional. 

The HR application is licensed on a per user/month basis and requires 5 users to be licensed as a minimum to qualify for its use.
