How to see how long is left on Power BI Pro trial for users?

Is there a way for an Office 365 admin to see how long is left on individual's Power BI Pro Free Trial? I know how each user can see on their own, but I'd like to get ahead of exipirations and buy licenses 1-2 days before it dies vs the current method of it dying then I have to contact our reseller to get a license. We cannot buy them online, which is frustrating in its own right.

Hi @edhans

The only thing that would come to mind for me is to have a PowerShell script run and see when the Power BI Pro Trial license was acquired. 


Then from this date, we know that there is a 60 day trial. So from the output you would then know when the trial is going to expire?

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Re: How to see how long is left on Power BI Pro trial for users?

Thanks. I thought about that but:

  • I'm not a powershell whiz by any means
  • Some trials are 30 days, others are 60 days, and a few (mine and 2-3 others in the office) are 365 days!

Right now the only true way to know is for the user to tell me before it dies, and they won't, so it is for them to be down 1-2 hrs when it does and when I can get a license purchased.
