Microsoft SharePoint Syntex per-user end of sale

Effective July 1, 2023, the Microsoft SharePoint Syntex per-user license will move to end-of-sale status. Microsoft SharePoint Syntex Pay As You Go (PAYG) remains in place.

The following capabilities of the SharePoint Syntex per-user license will become available to all Microsoft 365 E3, E5, A3, and A5 users:

  • Content Query – filter large libraries with custom metadata in a form-based interface.
  • Universal Annotation – add ink, comments, @mentions and more to many additional file types (more than just Office) supported by the file viewer
  • Accelerators – easily apply solution templates for common scenarios like contract management and accounts payable.
  • Taxonomy Services – admin reporting on term set usage and easy import from Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS)-formatted taxonomies.
  • Rules – lightweight automation for common operations like file alerts, copies and moves.

After Microsoft retire the SharePoint Syntex per-user license on July 1, 2023, they transition the remaining functionality not detailed in the list above fully to the pay-as-you-go model with Microsoft Syntex.

Customers will have access to per-user features throughout the term of their agreement, after which they’ll need to associate their Azure subscription with their Microsoft 365 tenant to use consumption services.
