17 The system license is required to use {{formcycle/}}. When a valid system license is installed, a lot of information about the license is displayed. Firstly, this is general information about the license and the version of the license. Pressing the {{icon name="refresh"/}} icon under the Version Status item will check if there are any available changes or updates to the system license. If this is the case, pressing the button //{{icon name="cloud-download"/}} Update// the system license can be updated to the latest version. Furthermore, data is displayed which provides information about the validity of the license, the licensee and contact person, as well as the available {{formcycle/}} features. In addition, for example, the limitations of the clients, forms and form inputs are displayed.

19 The lower part of the license information shows on the one hand the own hardware ID and on the other hand all hardware IDs belonging to this license. Changing too many components of the hardware will make the license inoperable.

29 Client licenses can be registered specifically for individual clients in the system and are sublicenses of the installed system license. By installing a client license, the settings of the system license are overwritten with those of the client license for the selected client. All existing client licenses are displayed in a table with information about the license key, validity, the selected client and the version status of the client license. Pressing the {{icon name="refresh"/}} icon will check if there are available updates for the client licenses. Updating the client license can be done by pressing the {{icon name="cloud-download"/}} icon. It is also possible to delete the license, download it or view all relevant information about the client license by pressing the {{icon name="info"/}} icon.
