Microsoft to introduce 'Activities' user level in Dynamics 365 for Operations as new option for limited usage

Microsoft plans to introduce a new license option for Dynamics 365 for Operations (formerly known as 'AX 7'). The new level is being referred to as the "Acitivities" SKU (though the final naming could change) and it will aim to fill a gap in current Dynamics 365 license levels, specifically for users who need to do a limited number of activities beyond the limits of the current Team Member license.

Speaking at Summit EMEA 2017 today, Microsoft director of product marketing Kees Hertogh told users that the team has in mind a specific set of usage rights based on by well-defined roles.
