Work.com: Setup - Why do I get a 'Can't complete this operation because it would exceed the number of apps allowed by the user license' error?

Knowledge Article Number 000220879
Description Why do I get a 'Can't complete this operation because it would exceed the number of apps allowed by the user license' error?
Resolution When assigning a user a permission set that gives them access to Work.com app you may encounter this error.  This error will typically only occur when trying to assign a permission set that grants access to the Work.com app to a user whose license limits them to custom apps (e.g. Salesforce Platform, Force.com App Subscription).

To resolve the issue, remove Work.com as an assigned app from the permission set:

1. Go to Setup | Manage Users | Permission Sets and select your permissions set

2. Click on Assigned Apps

3. Remove Work.com from the Enabled App list

4. Optionally add the Work.com tabs (e.g. Goals, Coaching, Feedback) to an app already accessible to these users.
