In this article we will explain who the License Manager for Microsoft Teams is and what rights he/she will have.


Who is a ShortPoint License Manager in Microsoft Teams?

ShortPoint License Manager is the most advanced user in terms of permissions. A License Manager has all the rights of a Designer, but in addition he/she has rights to assign the remaining ShortPoint licenses to other users.

The first user who submits a trial request will be automatically assigned as a ShortPoint License Manager. 

There can only be one License Manager per Teams account.

How to check if the user is a License Manager?

Click the down-arrow icon on the right side to the ShortPoint tab you have, and select the Settings option from the drop-down:

Open the Account Settings by clicking the cog wheel button inside the ShortPoint tab:

Switch to the Users tab. 

The user who has License Manager type is actually a License Manager :)
