Default Show Who is Sharing a License

The version 5 method of sharing licenses looks very useful - particularly for runtime licenses. However, if the company has several runtime licenses, it make's it difficult to keep up with who has a license. It would be very useful to list the user email address beside the license when a license is checked out in the "Acitvation ID" screen. The "Share My License" screen shows who is allowed to share, but does not show who has actually checked out a license. (I base this on the fact that the "Share My License" screen shows a potential user as soon as that person's email address is "added" - but before they actually check out the license.)

When you activate a license from Flexsim, it doesn't tell our license server the email address of the person at the computer who checked out the license. It only tells the license server various unique identifiers about the hardware (such as MAC addresses) on the computer that checked out the license. So there is no way the website can know who checked out the license.

Similar to a Client - Activatable license model is a Server - Activatable model. With a Server - Activatable license model, a company can activate licenses from our server onto their server. Then client machines can activate licenses from the company license server, which then leaves an entry in the License Server Manager software on the company's license server that shows the client computer's name. This way you can track what computer on your network has what license by name. You can contact Flexsim Sales concerning the cost to purchase Server - Activatable licenses or convert licenses to Server - Activatable.

There is no way to tie a license activation to an email address though because you don't need an email address in order to activate a license.
