Trimble License Manager Quick Start Guide

Once any subscription license has been purchased from Building Point or Trimble the user will receive an email from Trimble.

This email will invite the user to create a Trimble ID.

Click HERE for detailed instructions for creating a Trimble ID.

After the Trimble ID is created, the email address that was used for the purchase will receive an invitation to License Manager.

Select the blue “Visit License Manager” icon to enter License Manager. A separate
browser tab will open.

The person whose email was entered in for the purchase will become the License Manager Administration person.

  2. The email that was used to enter the subscription purchase will have the administrator's name displayed in the upper right-hand corner.

After the terms are accepted the  ACTIVATE  tab will appear. The administrator must select  ACTIVATE, to begin subscription activation.

Note: The request to ACCEPT TERMS will only be asked the first time a subscription license is purchased.

Note: Trimble Connect AR + MR and Trimble Connect Business & Business Premium will be automatically activated upon opening License Manager and an export date will be displayed, thus ACCEPTING TERMS and ACTIVATE are not required. 

Note: All licenses will be activated that were purchased on the same order or block will be activated at this time and will have the same expiry date. If the administrator does not want to activate all licenses at the same time and wishes to activate licenses at different times, then make additional orders to split up the purchase.

The administrator will select  ACTIVATE
