Subscription Web Options

Online Help > Subscription Web Options

​The Subscriptions functionality allows a user to unlock additional functionalities for Project Plan 365 for Web, to better match his project planning needs. In this sense, a user has the possibility to start a free trial for Project Plan 365 for Web in either Advanced Viewer or Complete Editor mode, or to buy a subscription for Advanced Viewer or Complete Editor for Project Plan 365 for Web. Thus, the user can either has a trial or paid subscription for Advanced View-Only or Complete Editor mode of Project Plan 365 for Web. Based on the type of subscription the user has purchased, the application can be in either Advanced View-Only or Complete Editor mode. Therefore, there are four types of available subscriptions: free trial (for Advanced View-Only and Complete Editor mode), and paid (for Advanced View-Only and Complete Editor mode).

Each subscription, whether it is of free trial or paid mode, has associated a start and end date, which dictates the moment in time when a subscription may expire. A free trial subscription has a period of 30 days, whilst a paid subscription lasts one year, and it can be renewed annually. Thus, the status of a subscription can be either active or expired.

Please note that in order to start a trial or to buy a subscription, a user needs to have an account on www.projectplan365.com website, and it is required to sign in with his account within Project Plan 365 for Web. At the first time when opening the application, when the user has not signed in or when his account is not associated with any subscription, Project Plan 365 for Web is in Free Viewer mode. In this case, the application is locked and most of its functionalities cannot be accessed.

Once a user started a trial, he can no longer start another trial. To start another trial, you must Sign Out and use another account to sign in the application.

The subscription functionality brings the concept of universal platform subscription (UPS), such that once a user purchased a subscription for Project Plan 365, he can use it across several platforms on which Project Plan 365 is available such as: Windows, Mac, iOS (tablet and phone), Android (tablet and phone). Therefore, the user does not need to purchase multiple subscriptions in order to use Project Plan 365 application on different platforms.

In the following it will be described the possible scenarios that may arise as part of the UPS flow.

At the beginning, when no trial was started or no subscription was bought, Project Plan 365 for Web is in Free Viewer mode, and most of the functionalities cannot be accessed (i.e. a lock indicator will be shown next to the functionalities that are not available in Free Viewer mode).
