Microsoft 365 Business Upgrade from Standard to Premium

JFNK 71 Reputation points

I am considering moving my users from Microsoft 365 Business Standard to Premium, to take advantage of security/admin features and to be able to use Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure. The users have the Office suite installed on their desktops, and I am wondering if these will need to be uninstalled/reinstalled for the new licence to take effect. This was something I looked into some time ago - pre M365 - and it looked like it was needed then, but I'm hoping M365 is a bit more joined up.

Anyone know?

    @JFNK ,

    Generally, you do not have to uninstall or reinstall Microsoft 365 desktop apps after upgrading Microsoft 365 Business from Standard to Premium, as these desktop apps are same.

    Besides, I find an article "Upgrade to Microsoft 365 Business Premium from Microsoft 365 Business Standard", I think it may be helpful.
