How to Change Group License Assignment

Some Microsoft office 365 licenses are capped up-to 300, you can not buy more than 300 ( for example – Microsoft 365 Apps for business ). If you have more than 300 users, then you need to buy another license and change the assignment for the group. It is recommended to assign licenses to the group and add/remove members in that group.

Here we already have a group “Nurses UK” and have been assigned “Microsoft 365 Apps for business” License but now this group has more than 300 members so we bought new license “Office 365 E3”. We will change the license assignment for the group.

  2. Select Azure Active Directory —> Groups, and Search for the group then select the group you want to change the license.
  3. Select Licenses.
  4. Select the Assignments to assign the new license to this group
