The QVscribe Teams Servers provides the ability to create license pools for managing your licenses.  This can be helpful for one of the following scenarios:

  1. To split licenses into groups for different departments or teams.  This means that different groups can purchase their own seats without having to set up a new QVscribe server.

  2. To ensure a seat is always available. You can create pools to help manage the usage of seats. If one or two individuals need a license at all times, you can create a license pool just for those specific users.

  3. To increase the chance that a certain set of users has access to a seat, you can add certain users to multiple pools.

Alternatively, you can create 1 license pool to hold all your seats. You have the ability to change this if or when necessary.

The QVscribe License Pools section can be found on the QTS dashboard, under License Management.
