Upgrading your Account
If you are on a free trial of Gridfox or your trial has expired, you can upgrade your Account to a paid subscription.
Within your subscription, you can choose the number of User Seats that you would like to add to your Account.
Every distinct User invited to a Project within your Account will required their own Seat.
Once you have started a subscription, you can add more Seats to your Account at any time.
Types of User Seat
There are two types of User Seat in Gridfox:
Your Account will have an automatic allocation of Read-Only seats.
A User will occupy a Read-Only seat if all Groups they are in have marked as Read-Only.
Gridfox licenses are priced per Seat.
