Power Apps Plan 2 Trial - when it should be expired?

Hi all!

I thought that Power Apps trial license gives only 1 month (with ability to extend for the second month) and only 25 users.

But today I saw a strange situation...

In the beginning of February I started to use Power Apps per user plan and Office 365. I created 2 apps which using custom CDS entities. Today I logged in to the Admin portal to extend my licenses for the second month. But I can extend only Office 365 license. For Power Apps I see only 'Power Apps Plan 2 Trial' with 10 thousand available users and with 'no expiration'.

I've checked the tester user - he has just 'Power Apps Plan 2 Trial' license and he is able to work with my 2 apps and use CDS entities without any issues.

 

So the questions are:

1) Does Microsoft changes the subscription rules? 

2) How long can I use this 'Power Apps Plan 2 Trial' license?

 

The screen short from my Admin Portal is in the attachment.

Re: Power Apps Plan 2 Trial - when it should be expired?

Hello @KCh ,

 

I was not able to find any new official information about changes on the trial period for the licenses. The public info still says that the trials are available for 30 days. 

 

Besides this there is the license enforcement for Team Members license that you can find below:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365-release-plan/2020wave1/dynamics365-sales/license-enforc...

 

I am not sure but perhaps the PowerApp trial license is dependent on the O365 one, which means that eventually when the O365 expires the PowerApps will be also unavailbale.

In case you need to have a deeper investigation on the licenses I would suggest to raise a support request with Microsoft.

Re: Power Apps Plan 2 Trial - when it should be expired?

Hi,

I have noticed the same situation on several tenants, for Power Apps trials and Power automate as well.

I would love this to be true, especially since I have just found out that apparently External users (Guest) can use SharePoint forms customized with PowerApp without any licence, but not Internal users (Members). The later are prompt with a invitation to submit a Trial in order to be able to access the form...

 

PS: the "Get more info" only point to the PowerApp documentation, which says 30days for a PowerApp trial, and 90days for Power Automate.

Re: Power Apps Plan 2 Trial - when it should be expired?

I opened a support request with Microsoft, some answers directly address the opening post while others some might find useful. To avoid any confusion, 'Microsoft Power Apps Plan 2 Trial' is the trial version of the 'Power Apps Per user plan'.

 

Qs#1- Is it true that the 'Power Apps Plan 2 Trial' never expires, or will it expire at the same time as the 'M365 Business Standard trial' expires?
 
As stated on our documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/signup-question-and-answer#can-i-block-users-i...), the Powerapps trial only last for 30 days and can be utilized within that period

 

Please note that the entitlement for new users to keep signing up for the Powerapps plan 2 trial will exist there forever and each user will be alloted a 30 day trial.

 

Qs#3- When the 'M365 Business Standard trial' expires, will I still be able to develop Power Apps/Portals? In other words, is a M365 Business or Enterprise plan needed when a  'Microsoft Power Apps Plan 2 Trial' is active?
 
As a user, you should be able to carry on with developing powerapps/Portals even when the M365 Business Standard trial expires. 
 
There are 2 different licenses; the seeded license and the Stand alone license. The seeded license is the powerapps free that comes with the M365 license, when your M365 license expires, you will lose access to the seeded powerapps and power automate. 
 
The Powerapps Plan 2 Trial on the other hand is a stand alone license, so even when the M365 license expires, you will still have access to the Powerapps plan 2 trial till it gets to the expiration date.
 
Qs#4 - Similarly to Qs#3, is a M365 Business or Enterprise plan needed when a 'Power Apps Per app plan' is active?
 
No. Powerapps per App plan is a standalone license, you can use it without M365 license.
