    The different subscription plans of SharePoint Online

    As the plans differ in their range of functions, you should consider which functions you will need. It is possible to combine different license plans – however, license restrictions must be observed, as some plans (e.g. Business Essentials) are limited to 300 licenses, only Enterprise E3 licenses are unlimited. The choice of the right license plan should therefore also depend on the size of your company.
