@karthikpalani-9530 Thanks for posting in our Q&A. For this activate user issue, it seems more related to office scope. To get more accurate help, I will add office-itpro tag and let's wait for the related support engineer inolved in this issue. Thanks.

Hi @karthikpalani-9530

If users manually log their licensed accounts in to Office apps, Office will be activited automatically.

For Microsoft 365 apps, each installation is activated and kept activated automatically by cloud-based services associated with Office 365 (or Microsoft 365). This automatic activation means you don’t have to keep track of product keys and you don’t have to figure out how to use other activation methods such as Key Management Service (KMS) or Multiple Activation Key (MAK).

For more information, please refer to "Overview of licensing and activation in Microsoft 365 Apps".

Hi @karthikpalani-9530,

If your workstation are Windows 10 (recommanded last update) or windows 11, you can Add directly workstations to azure with Azure AD Join functionality.

Users can log directly to the session with azure ad credentials, you have SSO embedded in the windows session.

You check read more here : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/concept-azure-ad-join

Have a great day
