Subscription options

Microsoft 365 is available in a variety of plans to best meet the needs of your organization. For detailed plan information on subscriptions that enable users for SharePoint, see the full subscription comparison table.

To access SharePoint, users in your organization need to be assigned a license that includes SharePoint. A Firstline plan is not sold as a standalone offer, only as part of Office 365 F3Microsoft 365 F1 or Microsoft 365 F3.

Rights of guests

If you purchase a plan and create a site that uses enterprise features, guests you invite are granted rights to use and/or view the enterprise features within the site to which you've invited them. While you can invite guests to perform a full range of actions on a site, they won't have the same capabilities as a licensed user within your organization. For example, if your plan includes desktop versions of Office applications, guests can't install them on their own computers unless you assign them a license.

It's the place where people can store, sync, and share their work files across multiple devices with ease and security.
