Microsoft Forms – Disabling User Licensing via PowerShell.


Many customers have asked how to disable "Microsoft Forms (Plan E3)" for all users via Windows PowerShell.

Claus Schiroky created a PowerShell script found here.  This was originally created for Sway, but can be used for Forms.

Before running this, you may need to install the prerequisites:

Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant for IT Professionals RTW 
Download and install en\msoidcli_64.msi

Azure Active Directory Connection
Download and install AdministrationConfig-V1.1.166.0-GA.msi

I named this ManageServices_Forms.ps1 and placed it in C:\Temp.  I then opened Windows PowerShell and browsed to that .ps1 and hit Enter.

Enter.

I then chose [21] DISABLE a service for all users > Enter

When asked for the AccountSkuId, I chose FORMS_PLAN_E3, because my use have Office 365 Enterprise E3 licenses:

I was then asked to enter my Microsoft Office 365 global admin email address > Enter.

I was then asked to enter the Service Plan name > Enter.  I entered FORMS_PLAN_E3.

Unfortunately in my test environment my FORMS_PLAN_E3 ServicePlan in still in a PendingProvisioning State.  So my test does show Forms as being Disabled.  But trust me, this is how you do it.

Once my tenant in no longer in a PendingProvisioning state I will update the blog.
