How is T-Plan Test Management Suite licensed?
T-Plan Professional operates a “Per User” License type.
- This type of license allows a specific number of users to use the software at one time.
- Each license has a designated number of users.
For example: If the license purchased is set up with 5 users, only 5 users would be allowed to use T-Plan Test Management Suite at any given time, even if there were 10 computers that had T-Plan Test Management Suite installed on them.
Should you have any further questions regarding pricing, or the license, please contact our Sales department through the T-Plan Contacts page.
What do you mean when you talk about "community"?
Many existing features and improvements were actually suggested by active users who provided feedback.
The T-Plan community for us means the network of users who actively use the tool, and give us feedback. Whether it is a bug report, feature suggestion or recommendation on the web (email@example.com, contact details), or our own T-Plan forums, we aim to address your wants and needs.
We look forward to welcoming you to our family!
