What is a license in the LogMeIn Admin Center?
Licenses (also known as a "product license" and formerly known as "seats") are allocated to users so that LogMeIn products (e.g., GoToMeeting, GoToAssist Remote Support v5, etc.) can be accessed and used.
When an admin purchases product licenses for their account, those licenses will remain available until they are assigned to user accounts.
When a product license is assigned to a user, that user must activate their account, which can be done in any of the following ways:
- If the user has never had a LogMeIn product license, they are prompted to create an account password via their user invitation
- If the user has an existing product license, their user invitation will prompt them to either sign in or transfer their license to the inviting account
- If the user has been added and enabled or enforced to use Enterprise Sign-In (single sign-on), they can use their company account credentials to sign in
There are two types of licenses that are available to choose from in GoToAssist Remote Support v5, GoToAssist Remote Support and/or GoToAssist Service Desk: named licenses and concurrent (shared) licenses. Named licenses are dedicated licenses that are assigned to individual user accounts. With concurrent licenses, there is a limited number of licenses that can be shared among your pool of user accounts. Shared licenses can be viewed and managed in the LogMeIn Admin Center, where admins can clear a license as necessary to free it up and grant the ability for others on the account to use the license.
