Salesforce User License Feature Matrix

with 4 comments

Understanding Salesforce licensing is incredibly important for all areas of a business buying salesforce and implementation projects. Common questions are:

  • What licenses are available?
  • How much do they cost?
  • Which license types support my intended solution?
  • What are the limitations?
  • How are they “consumed”?

As part of my Salesforce TA Certification I created a matrix that compares all current license types making it easy to learn about licenses and make the licensing decision a bit easier. The matrix isn’t comprehensive but instead tries to balance ease-of-use whilst providing the most important decision points.

Let me know if I missed anything important!
