I totally agree! Paying plan1 or 2 license just to get the WORD connector (when in fact is a part of the O365 package) is really frustrating. All my apps are Sharepoint based, and i only use the WORD connector which is premium. It seems that MS are trying to squeeze us to pay more just for this feature.
It seems really an overkill getting all the CDS space and feature when all i need is the WORD connector.
I think that Premium connectors should be a part of O365 Business Standard & Premium (Not Basic).
Microsoft please help!!!
