Selective Licensing

Remove a particular license from a user account:

When you sign up for an O365 subscription, it often clubs multiple services together. For example: I have the E3 subscription so if I assign an “Office 365 Enterprise E3” license to a user, the user will get the all the services available in that subscription, like Microsoft Planner, Sway, Yammer Enterprise, Azure Rights Management, O365 ProPlus, Office Online, Skype for Business, SharePoint Online, and Exchange Online.

I might not want some user to get Sway, Yammer or Microsoft Planner. I could simply edit the license for each user by clicking the drop down and unchecking one of the licenses for each user however this process gets cumbersome if I have a lot of user like 1000.

For that I could use PowerShell.
