从付费加载项移至免费加载项。Moving from paid to free add-ins

Office 和 SharePoint 加载项的许可框架正处于停用过程中。The licensing framework for Office and SharePoint Add-ins is in the process of being retired. 有关许可框架的详细信息, 请参阅许可证加载项For more information about the licensing framework, see License your add-ins.

加载项用户体验Add-in user experience

下表介绍了不同购买类型加载项的用户体验, 以及从 "支付" 移至 "免费" 加载项时可以执行的操作。The following table describes the add-in user experience for different purchase types, and the action that you can take to transition from paid to free add-ins.

购买日期Purchase type 新用户New user 现有用户Existing user 要采取的措施Action to take
订阅Subscription 用户将享有免费的权利。The user will receive a free entitlement. 加载项将不再供购买, 但可免费获取。The add-in will no longer be available to purchase but can be acquired for free. 此操作将在加载项的权限令牌中返回。This will be returned in the token for the add-in entitlement. 账单月结后将不再对用户收费。The user will no longer be charged after their billed month ends. 将于付费期限结束后,无限期延长订阅许可证。At the end of the period they have paid for, the subscription license will be extended indefinitely.

如果许可证以前是基于席位的(仅适用于 Outlook 和 SharePoint 加载项),则将对其进行修改,使其类似于用户的网站许可证。If the license was previously seat-based (applies to Outlook and SharePoint add-ins only), it will be modified to resemble a site license for the user. 此操作将在加载项的权限令牌中返回。This will be returned in the token to the add-in.

所有有效试用许可证将被转换为免费权利许可证。All active trial licenses will be converted to free entitlements.
在返回 "免费" 或 "延期" 订阅状态令牌的情况下, 你可以利用此机会将用户追加到新许可证。Where a token in a free or extended subscription state is returned, you can take the opportunity to upsell the user to the new license. 用于通知追加决定的信息将保留在令牌中。Some information to inform upsell decisions is maintained in the token.

令牌更改Token changes
在加载项从 "付费" 移至 "免费" 时, 许可证令牌将发生更改, 如下所示:The license tokens will change when an add-in moves from paid to free, as follows:
  • 更新到所有迁移的令牌:Update to all migrated tokens:
    ed="8999-12-31T23:59:59Z"
  • 更新到所有基于席位的令牌:Update to all seat-based tokens:
    sl="true"
  • 对于基于席位的令牌(客户先前购买了网站许可证),请执行以下操作:For seat-based tokens, where the customer previously purchased a site-license:
    ts="0"
  • 对于基于席位的令牌(客户先前购买了 3 个席位),请执行以下操作:For seat-based tokens, where the customer purchased 3 seats:
    ts="3"
一次性购买One-time purchase 用户将享有免费的权利。The user will receive a free entitlement. 加载项将不再供购买, 但可免费获取。The add-in will no longer be available to purchase but can be acquired for free. 此操作将在加载项的权限令牌中返回。This will be returned in the token for the add-in entitlement. 用户原始购买将仍然有效。The user’s original purchase will still be valid. 如果许可证以前是基于席位的(仅适用于 Outlook 和 SharePoint 加载项),则将对其进行修改,使其类似于用户的网站许可证。If the license was previously seat based (applies to Outlook and SharePoint add-ins only), it will be modified to resemble a site license for the user. 此操作将在加载项的权限令牌中返回。This will be returned in the token to the add-in.

所有有效试用许可证将被转换为免费权利许可证。All active trial licenses will be converted to Free entitlements.
对于返回有效付费令牌的现有用户, 这些用户应继续工作。For existing users that return a valid paid token, those users should continue to work. 如果原始令牌基于席位(仅适用于 Outlook 和 SharePoint 加载项),则新令牌将包含最初购买的席位数。If the original token was seat-based (applies to Outlook and SharePoint add-ins only), the new token will contain the originally purchased seat count.

对于新用户或原始席位数超出的用户, 你可以利用此机会将用户追加到新许可证。For new users, or users where the original seat count has been exceeded, you can take the opportunity to upsell the user to the new license.

令牌更改Token changes
对于大多数用户, 返回到加载项的许可证令牌不会更改。For most users, the license token returned to the add-in will not change. 在加载项从 "付费" 移至 "免费" 时, 许可证令牌将发生更改, 如下所示:The license tokens will change when an add-in moves from paid to free for seat-based tokens:
  • 更新到所有基于席位的令牌:Update to all seat-based tokens:
    sl="true"
  • 对于基于席位的令牌(客户先前购买了网站许可证),请执行以下操作:For seat-based tokens, where the customer previously purchased a site-license:
    ts="0"
  • 对于基于席位的令牌(客户先前购买了 3 个席位),请执行以下操作:For seat-based tokens, where the customer purchased 3 seats:
    ts="3"

示例Examples

下面是在将加载项从付费移至免费后的体验的几个示例:Following are a few examples of the experience after an add-in switches from paid to free:

  • Word 用户一次性购买的加载项Word user, purchased add-in via one-time purchase

    由于此用户在移至免费前购买了加载项, 因此在 "et" 参数中, 许可证令牌仍将为该用户返回有效的付费权限。Because this user had purchased the add-in prior to the switch to free, the license token will still return an active paid entitlement for that user in the “et” parameter.

  • Word 用户获取同一加载项的免费版本Word user, acquires free version of same add-in

    由于此用户未在付费时获取加载项, 因此在 "et" 参数中, 许可证令牌将为该用户返回免费权限。Because this user had not acquired the add-in when it was paid, the license token will return a free entitlement for that user in the “et” parameter.

  • Outlook 用户通过订阅购买加载项Outlook user, purchases add-in via subscription

    在这种情况下, 用户将继续使用其所支付的订阅, 直至该账单周期结束。In this case, the user will continue to use the subscription they paid for until the end of that billing period. 订阅的到期日期将延长, 将不再向加载项收取费用。The expiry date for the subscription will extend and they will no longer be charged for the add-in going forward.

  • Outlook 用户获取同一订阅加载项的免费版本Outlook user, acquires free version of same subscription add-in

    由于此用户未在付费时获取加载项, 因此在 "et" 参数中, 许可证令牌将为该用户返回免费权限。The user had not acquired the add-in when it was paid, so the license token will return a free entitlement for that user in the “et” parameter.

  • SharePoint 用户一次性购买了基于 3 个席位的许可证SharePoint user, purchased seat-based license for 3 seats via one-time purchase

    在这种情况下, 令牌将作为网站许可证高效地返回, 但还会包括已购买的座位数。In this case, the token will effectively come back as a site license but will also include the number of seats that had been purchased.

  • SharePoint 用户通过订阅一次性购买了基于 3 个席位的许可证SharePoint user, purchased seat-based license for 3 seats via subscription

    在这种情况下,令牌将返回,其到期日期将无限期延长,并且将作为网站许可证返回,但也将包括以前获得的席位数。In this case, the token will come back with an expiration date that will be extended indefinitely, and it will come back as a site license but will also include the number of seats that were acquired previously.

  • Excel 用户获取试用版加载项Excel user, acquired add-in as a trial

    由于此加载项是在试用到期日期之前获取的,因此试用版现在将返回免费授权。Because this add-in was acquired prior to the trial expiration date, the trial will now return a free entitlement.

    注意: 这适用于订阅或一次性购买的加载项。Note: This applies for subscription or one-time purchase add-ins.
