This post will let you create a Dynamics 365 trial real quick. All you need to have in place is an Office 365 instance and a Dynamics 365 (trial) license. Creating the trial for Dynamics 365 can be useful to test some things in new versions or if your trial instance is stuck.
Error when creating a Dynamics 365 trial: “no instances found for this user ID”
I’ve had it numerous times: you create an Office 365 trial and want to add a Dynamics 365 trial to the tenant. You go to the “purchase services” section and select the trial for Dynamics 365. Unfortunately, the Dynamics 365-tab is not showing up at the “Admin centers” section and when you go to the Dynamics 365 management url you get an error. No instances found for this user ID. Bugger! Now what?
Create a Dynamics 365 trial org in just a few clicks
In order to create a new Dynamics 365 trial org for testing purposes – or just because you wanted a trial org in the first place – you need to make sure that you have a Dynamics 365 license in place and added to your user profile. Haven’t got a (trial) license? Go to the “Purchase services” section and add a trial.
