Microsoft 365 downgrade

Do entitlements of newer online versions of Microsoft 365 allow for downgrade of older Microsoft 365 on local/ on-prem use?

No :slight_smile: there are no downgrade rights.


FromSA used to have Professional Plus deployment rights.


This is an interesting question.
A few weeks ago I too would have resolutelly sad: “No, there a no downgrades”

A few days ago I had an interesting project, which involved the downgrade of the Windows OS.
Customer had WinE3 per User (which is a part of the M365 E3 Suite).

The PTs state that the downgrade (and LTSC) rights are not given to cutomers licensed under a Customer Agreement. Which means that EA/MPSA customers do have downgrade rights on WinE3.

As a result my new answer would be that it depends :slight_smile:

  • some Prdoucts of the suite can be downgraded if it has been licensed under the correct agreement
