Hi @Anonymous ,

When your PowerApps Plan 2 license expired, you could consider take a try with the following two options:

  • Users who have access to PowerApps or Microsoft Flow through Office 365 or Dynamics 365 apps and plans can still access PowerApps or Microsoft Flow. However, those users will lose access to any features that are exclusive to Plan 2, as outlined on the PowerApps pricing page. Select Dynamics 365 apps and plans include PowerApps Plan 2.
  • Users who don't have access through Office 365 or Dynamics 365 (select apps and plans) can request to extend the trial, or they can purchase a stand-alone plan. For more information, see Purchase PowerApps for your organization.

Please check the following article for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/pricing-billing-skus#powerapps-plan-2-free-trial

 

Actually, if you have owned Office 365 license includes PowerApps, you could still access your app. More details about Office 365 licenses include PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/pricing-billing-skus#powerapps-for-office-365

E.G. If you own a Office 365 Business Premium license for your account, you could still create, edit and run your previous app.

Note: There are some limits on Office 365 licenses include PowerApps. Office 365 licenses include PowerApps could not access on-premises data or use premium or custom connectors and Data storage and management in Common Data Service.

So if your previous app includes custom connector or CDS data source, Office 365 licenses include PowerApps would not make you access your previous app.

Hi @Anonymous 

Yes, you will lose access to app/environment if your Plan 2 trial lapses and you don't have any other license. Here's an example of where this has happened recently.

Therefore, I would recommend that you backup your apps. You can do this by selecting the 'Export Package' option from your list of apps, or from the designer, you can choose File > Save As (This Computer) to download a copy of your app onto your local machine.

woah, thats sucks. I was planning to purchase a subscription but want to play around with powerapps a bit more.

So if i have a office 365 subscription (lets say Office 365 Business Premium) this problem would be solved right?.


Hi @Anonymous 

It's a bit confusing because the Office 365 Business plan doesn't include PowerApps.

A typical way to get PowerApps would be to purchase one of the enterprise plans (eg, E1/E2/E3/E5)

But if you just want to play around, I would recommend that you subscribe to the free community edition here.

But its stated here in the page,

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/pricing-billing-skus

that one of the Microsoft Office 365 plans that include PowerApps is Office 365 Business Premium. So yep, im even more confuse now.

Or does this mean that Office 365 Business Premium can only open the app but not create an app in powerapp?

Hi @Anonymous 

Sorry about that, that's my mistake. PowerApps is included in Office 365 Business Premium. I was confusing it with another Office 365 SKU. I'm pretty certain that you would be able to open and create apps with Premium, and I'm pretty certain that you can also create and open apps with Office 365 Business Essentials.
