Different license types in One Click LCAThere are three different license types on the One Click LCA platform. Most licenses are either named-user or floating licenses. Project-based licenses are less common.
- Named-user licenses
- Floating-user licenses
- Project-based licenses
Using a named-user licenseStandard licenses are based on named users (single physical person with a personal email address). The named user(s) have to be provided on the purchase of the license and are the only ones who are then allowed to make use of the license. Named users log in with the email address and chosen password they have registered their account with on the One Click LCA platform.
Using a floating-user license
Floating licenses are based on named users, however these licenses can have unlimited users. A floating license can be used concurrently up to the amount of seats purchased for access. In order to access a floating license, your user account needs to be added to the license. If this has not been done ask your license manager for access. If no license manager exists, you can reach out to support.
You would first log in with the email address you have used for your registration on the One Click LCA platform and your chosen password. After that, you will need to 'check out' the license in order to take one of the user seats of the license. The number of user seats is defined in the contract.
2. Check out the floating license in order to use it
This will enable you the access to the license features, to the tools, and to the projects which are created with this license (if you are the user of the project).
3. When you are finished working with the license, release the license
What to do if the number of simultaneous users (license capacity) is full?
- The number of simultaneous users of your license is defined in the contract.
- If your colleague has forgotten to log out or release the license, then a license manager can also release the checked out license.
- Note: If you force release the license and a user has not saved their project, this may lead to the user losing project data. Use this function with care.
