What do you need to know about the ShortPoint SPFx trial license?
ShortPoint offers a trial license to users who want to test the capabilities of the product before purchasing. Once ShortPoint is installed for the first time, the trial license will automatically activate for 15 days on your tenant or farm.
Note: Your trial license is tenant and farm-based and the 15-day evaluation period will be the same on all your site collections, sites, and subsites. So, if your trial license expires on one site, it means that it has also expired on all other sites.
Reminder: Trial License is not like the other licenses. Clients who have a one-year license will not have their work hidden once the trial expires. The designs will still be visible. However, it will not be editable. ShortPoint Page Builder, Theme Builder, and other features will become inactive.
How to check your trial license status?
Step 1: Go to the ShortPoint Dashboard
Open any SharePoint site where you have ShortPoint installed. Click the cogwheel button.
Upon clicking, you will see a side panel. Click Site contents.
On your Site contents page, select ShortPoint Dashboard.
On the ShortPoint Dashboard, you will already see the number of days left before your trial expires.
Step 2: Go to the Licensing Page
If you want to see more details about your trial license, click Licensing.
Step 3: Check the Status of your License
The ShortPoint Licensing page will show you the type of license you have. In this case, you have an Active - Trial license. It also shows you how many days you have left for your trial and the option to buy a license.
What will happen when the Trial License expires?
Before your trial expires, you will receive a pop-up message notifying you about the trial expiration. It contains the actual date of expiration as well as options to remind later or to never remind at all.
When your trial expires, you will see a message on your ShortPoint Dashboard notifying you that your trial license has expired.
The same message will appear on your Licensing page.
Your designs will also be hidden and a notification will pop up when you try to edit ShortPoint Design Elements.
However, once you reactivate your ShortPoint license, all your designs will work normally again. To reactivate your license, click Buy License on your ShortPoint Dashboard.
