Creating an Environment

- Navigate to License History and add a license by pressing the “Add license” button
- On the “Add license” page you have the option to either add a trial or a license for the environment. NOTE: If you add a license you will be billed, and afterwards you can bill it to the school yourself.
- An invoice reference can be added for your convenience. This number will return on your invoice.
Additional License information:
Calendar year license:
A Calendar year license will end on the first of January of the next year. It is possible to buy a 1, 2 or 3 year calendar year license. A license is needed for each managed device, and the license may be transferred to replacement devices when devices are refreshed/replaced.
Academic year license:
An Academic year license will end on the first of August. It is possible to buy a 1, 2 or 3 year Academic year license. A license is needed for each managed device, and the license may be transferred to replacement devices when devices are refreshed/replaced.
Full year license:
The annual subscription license has a 12-month term. It is possible to buy a 1, 2 or 3 Full year license. A license is needed for each managed device, and the license may be transferred to replacement devices when devices are refreshed/replaced.
The perpetual license does not expire, but it is tied to a unique device by serial number. This license may be purchased once to manage a device for the life of that device. A Perpetual license is tied to a device and cannot be transferred.
Perpetual licenses need to be assigned to a device. This can be done manually (Licenses management - License Assignments) Or automaticly by enabling the " Automatically assign a perpetual license to any device with this DEP profile during enrollment (when available)" option within the DEP profile.
NOTE: Choosing more years doesn’t give rights to discounts
- If you enable the Setup Assistant your end-customer will have to go through this before they can use the environment.
- After creating the location you will be redirected to the payment site or you will be invoiced by our administration.
- Invoicing will be proportionate to the months remaining in the invoicing period. (For example: 5 months remaining of the calendar / academic year: (€ 5 / 12 * 5 = € 2.08)) Please keep in mind: The current month will also be invoiced.
- The licenses will be added to the customer’s environment after the order is completed. You will receive the invoice on your email address.
