We have a customer who bought Office 365 licenses from a vendor for a long time ago. The license is Exchange Online Plan 1. There multiple users in the organization using this license to access to Office 365 products.
The organization wanted to buy license from us and we have sold Enterprise E1 license instead of Plan 1. There are few difference between this licensing types.
We have added the new E1 license to Office 365 and before old license is expired, we need to switch users to new license.
This job can be done via GUI or PowerShell. In this article, we will change it via PS.
You can see what license you have with following command
You can also see which license is assigned to a particular user with the below comand
Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName user1@cloudtolearn |fl, Licenses
