Description of the Floating License
Posted by Henry He on 22 February 2012 06:13 PM
The basic premise of the floating license is that it runs, and saves just like the normal stand alone BA. In fact its the same installation. The only difference is the License ID. The License ID differentiates between Stand alone and Floating licenses. The activation is the same, the program in the background will query the central server and determine that its a floating license. From there the license requires a persistent internet connection. You have the ability to checkout the license for up to 14 days and then you can use it offline, but the license will be taken out of the pool and it not be usable for anyone else until it is checked in.

Keep in mind that the floating license is not a cloud based application. It is simply a different license that allows flexibility of having multiple people on the same Belt Analyst license at different times.
This is extremely useful for those with offices in different time zones.
