Immediate action required for Microsoft Teams Rooms licensing enforcement.

Starting 1st July 2023, Teams Rooms devices, including those using Personal Mode and the Teams application on Surface Hub and Teams Panels will be blocked from signing in without a valid Teams Rooms license. To prevent imminent service disruption, provision and activate either a Teams Rooms Pro, Teams Rooms Basic (max 25 devices), Teams Rooms Premium, Teams Rooms Standard, or Teams Rooms Shared Device license (panels only) before the deadline.

For Teams Panels, customers need to provision a Teams Shared Device license for those accounts where a Teams Panel is deployed to a space where there's no Teams Room or Surface Hub in the room. Further to this, from 1st July 2023, access to the Teams Rooms Pro Management Portal will be restricted to those customers holding an active Teams Rooms Pro or a legacy Teams Rooms Premium license.

New Business Central Premium Attach Licenses.
