End of Autodesk New Multi-user Subscriptions

Update on March 13, 2020* | Autodesk will extend the ability to purchase new multi-user subscription plans to August 7, 2020 and move their retirement to August 7, 2021.

Autodesk has recently announced that on May 7, 2020, Autodesk will be launching named user plans and retiring plans based on serial numbers.

Network LicensesAs part of this transition, customers will no longer be able to purchase new subscriptions with multi-user access after May 7, 2020. This means, you only have until May 6, 2020 (*now August 7, 2020), to buy new multi-user annual subscriptions, which can then be renewed a year later by taking advantage of Autodesk’s one for two trade-in offer.

What is the one for two trade-in offer?
At your first renewal date after May 7, 2020, customers with multi-user subscriptions or network maintenance plans can trade-in one subscription or seat for two standard named-user plans. You can then renew at an ongoing discount through 2028.

If you want to know how the Autodesk transition to named users will affect you and your organization, please feel free to contact us at Microsol Resources to discuss the options that best suit your technical and business needs.

If you want to purchase new subscriptions with multi-user access, do so now before May 6, 2020 (*now August 7, 2020).  Feel free to contact your Account Executive at Microsol Resources or send an email to info@microsolresources.com.

The Top Things You Need to Know about Autodesk Transition to Named User Program

Update on March 13, 2020* | Autodesk will extend the ability to purchase new multi-user subscription plans to August 7, 2020 and move their retirement to August 7, 2021.

We want to make you aware of recent changes as Autodesk is launching new subscription plans that are based on people and retiring plans based on serial numbers as of May 7, 2020. Like most SaaS providers, these plans are designed for named users and provide a range of administrative, support, and reporting capabilities for businesses of every size.

Customers often share their concerns over the time and resources needed to manage multiple deployment types. These new plans for named users will provide benefits, including:

  • Optimize your licensing costs, by having visibility into your usage data.
  • No need to manage your own license servers or track an anonymous serial number again.
  • Dedicated access for all employees who need it. No more downtime waiting for licenses.
  • Tailor support and learning content to employees based on insights.

These new plans for named users will replace those based on serial numbers:

  • Subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 (*now August 7, 2021) and cannot be further renewed.
  • As part of retiring maintenance, the last version of the Design & Creation Suites will be released in April 2020 for customers to download, and the last date to renew Suites will be April 16, 2020.
  • Starting February 29, 2020, Autodesk will no longer sell new 2 or 3-year subscriptions with multi-user access or allow renewals. Starting May 7, 2020 (*now August 7, 2020), Autodesk will no longer sell new annual subscriptions with multi-user access.
1. What do I need to do to transition to a named user?

For customers who own a subscription with multi-user access or maintenance, at your first renewal after May 7, 2020, we’ll help you transition to a plan for named users through trade-in offers that keep your costs consistent today and predictable to 2028.

2. Standalone Maintenance trade-in offer

At your first renewal, before May 7, 2021:

  • Trade-in one standalone maintenance seat for one standard subscription for one named user at a price similar to what you’re paying in 2019 for maintenance.
  • Then, renew at an ongoing discount to 2028.
  • At the time of trade-in, choose to upgrade to an industry collection to get a comprehensive selection of tools to help you meet any project challenge—now and in the future.
  • At the time of trade-in or later, choose to upgrade to a higher plan for more advanced features, such as single sign-on and detailed-user reporting.
3. What if I don’t take the standalone maintenance trade-in offer?

If you do not take the trade-in offer, maintenance prices will increase by 20% on May 7, 2020 (*now August 7, 2020). Subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 (*now August 7, 2021), and cannot be further renewed.

4. Multi-user or Network Maintenance trade-in offer

At your first renewal only, after May 7, 2020:

  • Trade-in one multi-user subscription or network maintenance seat for two standard subscriptions for one named user each at a similar SRP you’re paying today for your existing seat or subscription.
  • For example, if you have 20 multi-user subscriptions, you can trade them in for 40 standard subscriptions for 40 named users at a similar SRP you’re paying today.
  • Then, renew at an ongoing discount to 2028.
  • At the time of trade-in, choose to upgrade to an industry collection to get a comprehensive selection of tools to help you meet any project challenge—now and in the future.
  • At the time toft trade-in or later, choose to upgrade to a higher plan for more advanced features, such as single sign-on and detailed-user reporting.
5. What if I don’t take the multi-user/network trade-in offer at my first renewal that occurs after May 7, 2020?
  • If you do not take the trade-in, at your second renewal, you can trade-in one discounted multi-user subscription (as a result of the Move to Subscription offer) or one network maintenance seat for one standard subscription for one named user at a
    similar SRP you’re paying today for your existing seat or subscription.
  • If you do not take the trade-in and keep your network maintenance seats, maintenance prices will increase by 20% on May 7, 2020 (*now August 7, 2020). Subscriptions with multiuser access and maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 (*now August 7, 2021), and cannot be further renewed.
