Hi.
Our customer has a laptop that is used by 5 different users (but not at the same time).
What kind of Microsoft 365 Business license do users need?
Can our customer buy 5 Microsoft 365 Business Basic/Standard or is it mandatory to buy 5 Microsoft 365 Business Premium ?
Thanks in advanced.
Best regards

    Hi @Matt887 ,
    I suggest you refer to this support article, it seems that the shared computer is a feature for organization to activate Microsoft apps:

    You should enable this feature manually, just checking in to see if the information was helpful. Please let us know if you would like further assistance.
