Question about Articulate 360 licences

Hi,

I have been reading about licencing and seat management in Articulate 360 but I am still confused about what would apply in our case.

We have 3 internal employees (not external collaborators) who can need to create e-learning contents during some periods of time. We also have 3 desktop computers.

We would need to have Storyline 360 installed on those 3 machines but we would only need 2 licences (2 subscriptions), because the 3 employees won't work with Storyline at the same time, maybe 1 or 2 at the same time. 

For example:

Scenario 1 (during a few days, weeks or months)

Employee 1 -> Computer 1 -> Using Suscription "editor-1@company.com"
Employee 2 -> Computer 2 -> Using Suscription "editor-2@company.com"
Employee 3 -> Computer 3 -> NOT USING STORYLINE

Scenario 2 (during a few days, weeks or months)

Employee 1 -> Computer 1 -> NOT USING STORYLINE
Employee 2 -> Computer 2 -> Using Suscription "editor-2@company.com"
Employee 3 -> Computer 3 -> Using Suscription "editor-1@company.com"

Etc.

So, the questions are (assuming we buy 2 suscriptions):

* Can we have Storyline installed (but not used the three instances at the same time) on those 3 computers?

* Can Employee 1 and 2 login with the two Articulate ID's we bought (editor-1@company.com and editor-2@company.com) on their respective machines and use Storyline 360 at the same time?

* After that, assuming Employee 1 is not going to need Storyline for some time, can Employee 2 and 3 login with the two Articulate ID's we bought (editor-1@company.com and editor-2@company.com) on their respective machines and use Storyline 360 at the same time?

* Even more, it is possible that employees exchange their machines for some reason (for example, employee 1 uses Computer 2 and employee 2 uses Computer 3)? Employee 1 would login with "editor-1" suscription and Employee 2 would login with "editor-2" suscription.

Basically I am asking if Articulate 360 is a true suscription model in terms of a user can use the desktop tools from any machine if he/she logins with correct credentials and there is nobody else logged with his/her credentials on another machine at the same time.

Thanks in advance for your response...

Hi there!  Each person who needs to use the software concurrently will need their own user seat on the team.  Under the terms of service, a seat can be transferred two times in a one year period, so sharing of the seats isn't permitted, but if one person won't need it much, it's ok to transfer one of the seats to them and then back to the original user.  Just make sure you're using their actual email addresses so you can keep track of who is using the seat!   Each user can install their software on two computers, like a home computer and a work computer, or two work computers if that's their situation.  I hope that helps but please let us know if there are more questions!
