    Hey @Anonymous,


    Was this a paid subscription expiring, or just an existing trial ending? Paid subscriptions will have access to features that trials do not, and therefore you would be shut out of the environment upon their expiration. If this was just a trial, you should be able to click that extend trial button, unless you've already extended it before. If you have, unfortunately, you will be locked out of further bot development unless you purchase a paid license, though your bot will continue to function for another 90 days post trial expiration. Documentation confirming this is here and here . Both Teams and Power Virtual Agents licenses are required for long term development of Chatbots on Teams. 


    If you wanted further practice beyond the 60 day trial, you could create a new trial tenant, but you would not be able to access the previous one in that case. Hope that clears things up on your questions.
