License Information

Company

This field displays your Company name, the name that you register Collect! with. This name is taken from a dialog that prompts for your Company Name any time you enter a new license code. You can only change this name when you enter a new license code. If you ever need to change the Company name, you would need to get a new license code from Comtech Systems Inc.

Do not mix up this Company name and your Company Details Company Name. The Company Details Company Name can be modified as you wish. However, changing the Company Name in the Company Details does not change the Company name that accompanies the license code.

Issued To

This field displays your Issued To name, the personal name that you register Collect! with. This name is taken from a dialog that prompts for your name any time that you enter a new license code. You can only change this when you enter a new license code. If you ever need to change the Issued To name, you would have to get a new license code from Comtech Systems Inc.

Do not mix this name up with your Company Details Representative Name. The Company Details Representative Name can be changed. However, changing the Representative in the Company Details does not change the Issued To name that accompanies the license code.

Description

This field displays the text Demo or Station 1. In future, it will be used to record and uniquely identify specific workstations signed into Collect!

Top of page.

License ID

This field displays your unique License ID number. This number is always a 5 digit number. You cannot change this as Collect! places the License ID derived from the License number Comtech Systems Inc. authorizes you to use.

Useful Note It is a good policy to use this number as the password whenever you need to encrypt any files that Comtech Systems Inc. sends to you (or vice versa). Using this License ID as the password, we would never need to divulge a password over a non-secure line. Your unique License ID is registered with us upon the purchase of Collect!.

Date Issued

This field displays the date that you entered your last license code. This date is calculated by Collect! the day that you enter your license code. You can not alter this date from this form.

Users

This field displays the number of Users you are currently licensed for. This information is taken from the license code you enter. This will only change if you enter a new license code to increase your number of Users.

A User is defined as a person or workstation that can sign into a Collect! database. If you need two workstations to sign into Collect! at the same time, then you would need a two User license. Even though you may have many computers in your network, you only license the number of users that need to sign into Collect! at the same time, i.e. the number of computers that sign into Collect! at the same time defines the number of users you need to be licensed for.
