Licensed Users Count

This article explains how Syskit Point licensing depends on the Microsoft 365 licenses in your tenant.
The licensing of the Syskit Point subscription depends on the number of licensed users and resources within the Microsoft 365 tenant connected to Syskit Point.
Licensed users are all users and resources with any Microsoft 365 license attached to them, except for those listed as Free Licenses.
  • Licenses that are listed as free by Microsoft do not count toward calculating the costs of your Syskit Point subscription
  • Resources include any meeting rooms, service accounts, and others with licenses.
  • Only unique licensed users or guest users and resources will be counted, regardless of how many licenses the unique user or resource has assigned to them.
  • Guest users only fit into that category if they have a paid license assigned.
    • Having a license assigned to guest users is unnecessary for rudimentary use cases such as sharing content and using the Microsoft Teams app.
The number of licensed users and resources within Syskit Point can be found by going to Settings (1) > General (2) > Point License (3) > Number of licensed users M/N (4).
  • Open a report with all your assigned paid licenses by clicking the View Point Licenses button (5).
Number of Licensed Users
  • M is the number of licensed users and resources in the tenant
  • N is the number of Paid users and resources that are included in the Syskit Point license
Clicking the View Point Licenses button opens the Point Licenses report screen with a list of all paid licenses assigned to users and resources in Syskit Point.
On that screen, you will find the following information:
  • Display Name (1) of the user or resource
  • Licenses (2) assigned to the user or resource
  • Username (3) shows the email of the user or resource
  • Department (4) that the user or resource belongs to
You can also use the column chooser (5) to add columns to the report.

The exact number and type of licenses assigned to users in Syskit Point can be found on the Licensed Users screen.
  • Click Users (1) on the left side of the Home page
  • Select Licensed Users (2) from the drop-down menu or tile
  • Browse (3) by type of license assigned to users under the Licenses section
Browse Licensed Users by license
To access information on how many assigned licenses exist in your Microsoft 365 environment, visit the admin center and take the following steps.
Under Billing (1), select Licenses (2). The list of owned licenses (3) will then be shown.
  • The Available Licenses (4) column shows the number of licenses available to be assigned to users or resources.
  • The Assigned Licenses (5) column shows the number of assigned licenses compared to the available number.
How to Check the Microsoft 365 Licenses
Selecting each license allows you to Assign it to additional users or resources or Unassign it from current ones. This can help with optimizing the cost of the Syskit Point subscription to suit your needs better.
To unassign users or resources from a license, click on the license name to select it. The License details (1) screen will open.
  • Once there, select an individual user or resource, or the top box to select all users and resources (2).
  • This will provide the option to click on Unassign licenses (3); a pop-up will open requesting you click the Unassign button to confirm.
The pricing for Syskit Point is calculated based on each user or resource with an assigned license. For example, if one user or resource has three licenses, the charge would still be for that single user or resource, regardless of the number of licenses assigned.

    • Once selected, a pop-up appears.

Removing Licenses
Please note that if the license is assigned automatically to the user or resource once they are added as a member of a specific group, it cannot be manually removed. The license is removed automatically once the user or resource is removed from being a group member. For more information about removing users from workspaces, read this article.
