Activate ShortPoint SPFx License and Assign ShortPoint Users

This article will show you how to activate your ShortPoint license and assign ShortPoint designers. This guide is for new installations, new user license activation,  or existing license renewals.


Before we begin

  • Make sure you are using SharePoint Online (Office 365) or SharePoint 2019 environment.
  • Make sure that ShortPoint is already installed on your SharePoint site(s) where you want to activate your license.

Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Locate the licensing page

To activate the ShortPoint SPFx license, you need to go to Site Contents, locate ShortPoint Dashboard, and click the Licensing page. 

Important: In case you are using ShortPoint for the entire site collection, please make sure you are at the root site of your site collection in order to activate the license for the whole site collection.

If you are on a trial license, you will see that your License Status is Active - Trial. It will show you how many days of your trial are remaining and you will also have the option to buy a full license.

Step 3: Assign ShortPoint Users

Now, you need to assign ShortPoint Users to accounts from your environment.

Assign users

By default, ShortPoint will assign the user who installed ShortPoint SPFx as a ShortPoint user. After, ShortPoint users can only be changed once a year. However, exceptions can be made for ShortPoint users who have left the company or were transferred to another department. If you need further assistance on user change, you may send an email to

Note: Before you assign a new user, make sure that it is not a shared account. It has to be a real person's account. For more information about accounts, checkout Are there any accounts that cannot be assigned as a ShortPoint user?
