How do I activate a Pro licence bought through MS Volume Licencing?

Hi

 

How do I activate Pro licences bought through MS Volume Licencing? We have claimed the tenant, but all the instructions for purchasing licences describe how to buy them online - not activate licences bought through a third party/volume purchasing.

 

Thanks for any assistance!

 

Regards

 

Stewart

@stewartm Can't say I'm extremely familar with the process, but it looks like you need to go through some sort of activation. Similiar to this: https://blog.cdw.com/data-center/activating-a-new-microsoft-office-365-volume-license-subscription

Sorry, I don't have a step-by-step

@stewartm Pro licenses are applied via O365. Assign the Pro license to the users via the O365 admin portal.

Thanks for the reply. However I can’t see them listed in the O365 admin portal (but we have bought them and they are listed on the volume licensing site). Only the free licenses are listed.

I’m not sure if I have to activate them on the volume licensing site somehow, or how they get linked from there to our tenant on Power BI/O365 admin portal.
