We have compiled a helpful top 10 resources to help anyone with their Autodesk licenses, solve problems, share expertise, and realize the business value of your Autodesk investments.

  1. How to do Software Reporting for Autodesk Network License | Whether it’s in preparation of Autodesk Named User transition or in consideration of upgrading from individual products such as AutoCAD to an Industry Collection, if you’re interested in gaining insights into the utilization of your Autodesk “multi-user” (Network) licenses, there are a few options available for reporting or interpreting the data from the Network License Manager (LMTOOLS). Check out this Microsol Resources’ blog post.
  2. Tips & Tricks for Upgrading Revit Projects | There are many benefits to upgrade to the latest version of Revit including security, stability, and new features. But one of the most important as of late is in preparation of Autodesk Named User transition since being on a supported version of current to 3 back from current is a requirement. Here is an article sharing some tips and tricks in upgrading your Revit projects.
  3. Bulk Add Autodesk Users in Autodesk Account | Accessing Autodesk subscription with single-user access types requires that users be added and assigned to their subscription within the Autodesk Account interface by an administrator. When multiple users need to be assigned, the process becomes more tedious. To speed up this process, we created this Microsol Resources’ blog article that explains how you can use an Excel sheet to help you bulk-add your named users.

For both options, users must be assigned to their products beforehand. Users can continue using their products while the tool is running but will need to restart their software and sign in when the update is complete.
