Edit cost information

To be able to analyze the costs for Microsoft Office 365 subscription plans and SaaS subscriptions, cost information must be added. When adding a cost period, the month from when the period starts is defined together with the monthly cost for the subscription plan per user.

If cost information is missing from one or more subscriptions, a warning message is displayed. For Microsoft Office 365, the subscription plans that are missing cost information are also highlighted with a warning icon on the Total cost for the current month tab.

A cost period is valid until a new cost period is added. Hence, if the cost for a subscription plan changes, a new cost period must be added. It is possible to add both older and future cost periods. However, it is only possible to add an old cost period if there is data for this period. It is not possible to change a cost period, but it is possible to delete a cost period.

Example 71.

You have a subscription plan for Microsoft Office 365 since February 2016. You started to import data from Microsoft Office 365 to Snow License Manager in March 2017. Thus, it is possible to add a cost period starting in March 2017.
