(Multi-Seat Subscriptions) Get Started with Subscription Management Portal

Before we begin

On the subscription management portal at manage.techsmith.com, you can view and manage your multi-seat subscription for these products:

video review icon Video Review assets for snagit icon TechSmith Assets for Snagit
knowmia pro icon TechSmith Knowmia Pro assets for camtasia icon TechSmith Assets for Camtasia
audiate icon TechSmith Audiate    

If you do not have a multi-seat subscription, see (Multi-Seat Subscriptions) Purchase a Multi-Seat Subscription.

If you need a one-seat subscription, or are looking for a different product (Snagit, Camtasia, or other), you can visit our online store. Licenses and subscriptions purchased in the online store can be managed at myaccount.techsmith.com.

After you contact Sales to purchase your first multi-seat subscription, you can view and manage it on the subscription management portal. For this, visit manage.techsmith.com and sign in to your TechSmith account. If this is your first sign-in, you will need to set a password.

number 3

You can view the products added to your multi-seat subscription.

Total seats shows the number of your team members who can use the product within this subscription. You can assign the Available seats to your team members, so that they can start using the product.

Rate plan shows product pricing. In this example, “volume” means that the price per seat depends on the number of seats. A “per unit” rate plan means that the price per seat is always the same (that is, the number of seats does not affect the price per seat).

Price per seat shows the full monthly or yearly price for this seat. If this is the first product in your multi-seat subscription, this is the exact purchase price for the seats. If you subscribed for the product after the start of your billing period, the full price per seat was automatically reduced.

Use the product menu (product menu icon) to edit the product (that is, purchase more seats), manage seat assignments, or to cancel auto-renewal for a product.
