How are computers counted in Team Plans?

Team Plan licenses are based on use of the Screencast-O-Matic tools and not by number of users or installations.   You can install Screencast-O-Matic applications across devices in your organization and add users. No Creator licenses will be consumed until a member of your team launches a Creator tool from a device on which Screencast-O-Matic is installed.

We count each individual computer that launches our tools during your plan month. Launching our tools includes the Capture Screenshot, Launch Recorder, and Open Video Editor actions. Once a computer launches one of these tools, a license is consumed by that device. This means that the creator tools can be used from that device anytime during the plan month.

Creator licenses reset each month. That means that if you have 100 computers launch the creator tools in one month, you can have a completely different set of 100 computers launch our tools the following month. Therefore, you do not necessarily need a 1:1 correlation between users and licenses. 

Your Team Admin can see how many computers are counted for the current month and can also set an email alert for when your team reaches 70% of its max usage. It’s easy to upgrade as usage grows and we will prorate the upgrade cost to your current plan term.
