Licensing dialog box in 20.1 version

IDEA StatiCa 20.1 has a new License dialog:

Licensing dialog box

“Keep me signed in” checkbox

This new checkbox defines if you want to use the offline activation window or not. Are you and your colleagues online all the time and want to share the license quickly? Or do you want an option to leave the office and finish your work on the road without an Internet connection? You can do both with the new licensing of IDEA StatiCa.

If “Keep me signed” is checked, IDEA StatiCa behaves as in version 20.0 – after closing the program, the license stays on your computer for 72 hours without the need to be connected to the Internet. And nobody else can access it.  You might switch your PC off and on during this time. This is useful for work trips, home office, or workplaces with an unstable Internet connection.

If this checkbox is empty, the license seat will be returned to the license pool immediately after you close IDEA StatiCa. The offline window is not activated, and other users in your organization can get your license immediately. However, this requires a constant connection to the Internet. This is useful for bigger groups of engineers with a stable Internet connection.

Remember me

If checked, IDEA StatiCa will remember and prefill your username and password in the license dialog for faster Sign In.

Forgot password, Trial

All the engineers in the organization can quickly recover their password using the “Forgot password” button. If you do not have an account and your organization has an IDEA StatiCa license, you need to ask your Administrator to add you as a licensed user.

Faster startup, better messages

The initial start of IDEA StatiCa is now 40 % faster due to the improved authentication sequence. Changes in products and license updates are faster by 70 %. We have also made the error messages clearer – for example, a new clear message when all the seats of IDEA StatiCa in your organization are taken by somebody else.
