Creating Custom Lead and opportunity in dataverse without sales Licensing

Good afternoon, 

 

Im trying to create a solution in Dataverse but since i don't have a sales license, i am unable to add the lead and opportunity entities(tables).

 

So i thought about creating them custom, is there any problem in doing so?

 

I remember that in Dynamics in the past if you had a team members licensing you were unable because of protocol violations.

 

I currently have the PowerApps plan 2 licensing. If i create the two custom entities will i have any problem in the future? 

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @Pires,

 

As a general rule of thumb, as long as you're not blatantly recreating/stealing the exact functionality and then reselling it as your own solution, there should be no problem with going and recreating your own custom Sales entities, this is a common scenario as many organizations don't take advantage of enough out of box Sales features to justify purchasing the license. Keep in mind that trying to recreate most/all of the OOB sales functionality would cost much more in development than just simply licensing for it.

With the new licensing model, there's no problem at all to re-create those entities/tables and functionality and use it for any purposes. The only thing I would question is: will it be more costly in total to re-create those and its functionality then to get the proper license and use the out-of-the-box Sales management? You'll need to consider build effort, opportunity cost, maintenance, new Microsoft features/updates, etc...

Cheers
