PowerApps Licensing

Hi Team

 

I have a scenario and need to understand the licensing implications.

 

Scenario: PowerApps is set up at the reception of my office. User licensed for it is the receptionist.

Visitors/Guests walk-in to the office and submit their details via PowerApps. PowerApp is not shared to these guests/visitors.

Is this violating any licensing guidelines?

Re: PowerApps Licensing

I see that there are people selling this kind of option and I know it can be done technically.  But as I already said, that means the visitors are using PowerApps.  If they are using PowerApps then based on what I read in the licensing guide they need to be licensed.

Re: PowerApps Licensing

Assuming the receptionist is the one doing the input, No you aren't violating any licensing.  But if you set it up as a Kiosk using the receptionists login, then I think you are violating the terms of the license. Because in that case the guests/visitors are the ones actually using the product even though they aren't logging in to do it.

Hi @v-monli-msft

Thanks for the response.
But I have already read through the links and it doesn’t provide any information regarding my question.
As per the Powerapps partner website what I am asking is not violating licensing at all because there are similar solutions showcased there. https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-showcase/spadeworx-software-services-visitor-registrat...
But I just wanted to be sure.
It would be great if you can provide a reply specific to my query.
