Take control of your SOLIDWORKS assets using the SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal
The SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal is an online service and management interface, where individuals who administrate any size group of SOLIDWORKS licenses can manage an organizations SOLIDWORKS assets. The main focus of the Admin Portal is the management and control over the assignment of standalone SOLIDWORKS licenses.
The Admin Portal is “In The Cloud” and accessible from anywhere online, which makes it easy for those responsible for SOLIDWORKS licenses to:
- Monitor all of an organizations SOLIDWORKS Assets
- Invite individual users to make SOLIDWORKS Assets accessible to them.
- Toggle the status of the ONLINE LICENSING MODEL for SOLIDWORKS ASSETS
- Appoint other users as LICENSE Administrators
- Revoke licenses from users
In order to take advantage of the SOLIDWORKS ONLINE LICENSE model, an individual with a SOLIDWORKS ID will need to login and “declare” themselves to be the “Administrator” for an organizations assets.
Let’s take a look at the Steps in the process of becoming an Administrator within your organization:
The Serial Number that you had entered during the registration process should automatically link your login info to your SOLIDWORKS assets.
Once you are logged in, Navigate to your Profiles Drop-Down menu located in the Upper-Right portion of the page.
Select the “Admin Portal” entry from the Drop-Down menu.
If this is the first time that anyone from your organization has attempted to login to the Admin Portal they will be met with a “First Moment of Truth” page. You will need to verify that the name of your organization is included in the top lines of the page. (The FMOT page may not appear exactly as illustrated)
You will need to check the boxes in order to accept the “Terms and Conditions” as well as confirm that you are “responsible for assigning and managing the SOLIDWORKS products at my organization”
Once the checkboxes have been selected, proceed by choosing the “Promote me to Administrator” Button.
Once you have selected the “Promote me to Administrator” Button, you should successfully arrive at the confirmation page that will grant you access to the SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal.
At this stage in the process, the administrator should reach the main page of the SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal.
Using the menu selections at the top of the page the administrator may continue on and:
- Explore the MEMBERS (Users) that are part of your organization
- Explore the SOLIDWORKS PRODUCTS available to your organization
- Explore the SERVICES available to your organization (Such as MySolidWorks Professional Subscriptions)
- Explore the CAD Admin Dashboard
