Website-based product licensing
Today we starting rolling out our newest licensing module. We now support licensing out products for just a single website.
The idea came from our customers, who wanted to purchase the site templates that we offer for download. The site templates were meant as technology demonstrators to show off our products in real-world situations. But people wanted to get it installed and running in the production environments as well. The templates use our products and install trial versions. Of course, you can purchase the full server license, but what if you just need that particular site running and do not want to commit for the full license yet?
That's when the website licenses come to help. We can now license and register the products in bulk for just a single website. They will work inside that website, but will show up as expired anywhere else. This way you can purchase a discounted license just for the website you need running right now and can postpone the decision regarding server licenses for later.
Registration procedure is also simplified: once purchased the license, simply email us the Registration ID produced by the Trial and Registration web part located on the site's homepage. We will issue a license key, you will enter it into the web part, click Register and that's it!
So give our site templates a try, they are completely self-installing and self-configuring, so the whole process is as easy as it should be!
New SharePoint Site Template: Employee Training
As almost every week lately, we have a new site template now for both WSS 3.0 and SharePoint Foundation 4.0 (or if you prefer MOSS 2007 and SharePoint 2010). This time it is Employee Training site. This is where your employees goes to see what internal training courses are available, which ones still have room left to sign up.
Your trainers will be able to set up course using a convenient calendar based view. Courses can then be updated with materials and you can even set the maximum number of participants.
Your employees can then find a course based on category/subcateogry and description and sign up (if there is still room left). The signup process is as easy as it should be - just click a mouse button! You can then view your past and present courses on the personalized homepage. When you are finished taking the course, just fill in a short review, so that the trainers and course can then be evaluated.
The site template uses 4 Infowise products and is packaged together into a single automatic installer for your convenience that will install the products and then create and configure the site for you. Give it a try, it is free for 30 days!
