Bishopric members come and go. Are you suggesting they all share a common software license on their personal devices?

Office 365 is cloud-based and uses logins for each individual to manage the license. As long as each individual is their own "named user", then I don't see a problem with that. That's using it as how it is intended to be used.

As callings change, old users are dropped and new users are added. The monthly bill is based on the number of named users. Think of it as individual licenses with centralized billing.

The real question is where do you draw the line? Can you get by with just the bishopric and no assistant clerks? Or will this experience "scope creep" until you have the entire ward council on there? $5 per user per month gets expensive fast.

I noticed Office 365 was an option in the provisioning tool, and that's what's being installed in the computer setup instructions example. But it doesn't install a licensed copy; are they supporting this in some way or is that just a convenience they provide if you decide to get your own license?

I haven't looked at the tool in a long time. It may not be just for unit computers. That option might be there to provision employee computers.

Good point, it is a universal installer.
