MC388541: Microsoft Project trial for Microsoft 365 users

Earlier this year, the self-service trial (MC306669 Dec ’21) was rolled out for Microsoft 365 customers to try out Project. Starting in June 2022, Microsoft 365 users will also be able to try Project from “in-app” without payment. In this case, the in-app trial will be available either through Home in Project or in Planner – see the image below as an example. For future reference, in-app trials will become available in other Microsoft 365 apps, which you will receive notifications as these begin to rollout.

Note: These trial capabilities will be available worldwide except for India, starting first with the U.S. tenants. They are not available for Education or Government customers.
