New in March 2020, a free 6-month Office 365 E1 Trial, including Microsoft Teams, is now available. Microsoft is making this special E1 Trial license available in response to the increased need for employees to work from home (WFH) in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.
How to get an E1 Trial license
For organizations served by a Microsoft partner (such as CisCom Solutions), work with your partner to get a free 6-month Teams trial.
This offer is intended for any customer that's managed by a Microsoft account rep. It's for organizations - including nonprofits - who haven't activated any other Office 365 E1 trials in the past.
After you've used your E1 Trial, you can't use it again, nor can you activate another E1 Trial.
Who isn't eligible
- This offer isn't available for GCC, GCC High, DoD, or EDU customers.
- For GCC, check out the Office 365 G1 Trial.
- EDU customers should use the free Office 365 A1 license.
If the E1 Trial license ends and a user is not immediately upgraded to a subscription that includes Teams, the user data is not removed. The user still exists in Azure Active Directory and all data within Teams still remains. Once a new license is assigned to the user to enable Teams functionality again, all content will still exist.
