Transition to Named User

Transition to named user plans beginning August 7, 2020*

Autodesk is retiring plans based on serial numbers and launching new plans based on people. Their new plans will deliver you and your business many benefits now, and in the future, at a cost consistent with what you pay today:

  • Dedicated access for all employees whenever they need it. No more downtime because all of your licenses are in use.
  • New ways to optimize licensing costs. New named plans will allow you to have visibility into your usage data allowing you to make smarter investments for your company.
  • Plans for individuals, teams, and enterprises with dedicated or flexible software access, depending on how your company works.
  • You will no longer have to manage network servers or track anonymous serial numbers.
  • This is just the start of a more relevant user experience including collaboration, tailored learning content and insights.
