How to Change Subscription Plan in Office 365?


Every subscription plan of Office 365 has different features and may vary in terms of the benefits for a business. If want to take advantage from the features that are not available in your current plan, you can simply switch the plan. By switching the plan, you may be able to switch some or all users from your current plan to different one.

One of the easiest ways of switching the plan is using Switch plans wizard built into Office 365 admin center. However, it may not be supportable in all situations, especially when you have to switch the plan manually. The switch plans wizard leads you through the process of buying a plan that you can switch to, reassigns all user licenses and also cancel your old plans.
