Adding Users

Autodesk Account allows you to add single users and assign benefits or enter a list of multiple users and assign the same benefits to all users at one time. Users will be notified of any addition to a contract or change in benefits at the email address entered when a user is added.

To add a single user:

  • Click the + Add button to activate the Add Users window.
  • Enter the email address, first name and last name (all are required). The email address is the user’s Autodesk ID used to access his/her Autodesk Account.
  • Check “I’d like to add access to the user(s) now” if you wish to manage access to products and benefits.
  • Note: Added users will have access to an Autodesk Account, but will not have access to products and benefits until they are assigned.
  • Click the Save & Continue button or Add Another User if adding more than one user individually.

  • Check “I’d like to add access to the user(s) now” if you wish to manage access to products and benefits.
  • Note: Added users will have access to an Autodesk Account, but will not have access to products and benefits until they are assigned.
  • Click the Save & Continue button.

Removing Users

Remove a user’s permissions for software and services on a subscription contract in Autodesk Account before deleting users to make sure these services are available to other users. After removing permissions, you can delete the user if he/she should no longer be a Named User on the subscription. Removing a user from a subscription contract does not delete a user’s personal Autodesk Account.

Users You Cannot Delete

Administrative users such as Contract Managers and Software Coordinators cannot be removed until those roles are assigned to a new user. You will not see an “X” or the option to remove these users in User Management. Please see Contract Managers & Software Coordinators for more information about removing or changing these administrative users.

To remove or delete a user:

  • Follow the instructions in Setting User Permissions for Products, Services & Support to unassign all software and services before removing a user from an account.
  • Deleting a user from an account does not remove software and service permissions or delete that user’s Autodesk Account.
  • Locate the name of the user you wish to remove and click the “X” on the user record.
  • Click the Remove button to confirm that you wish to remove the user from all contracts or click Cancel.
