FileMaker Licensing for Teams (FLT)

FileMaker Licensing for Teams is a simple way for teams of 5 or more people to license FileMaker software for their users. Purchase of FileMaker Licensing for Teams includes FileMaker Server and User Connections. Each user requires a User Connection. User Connections allow clients — including FileMaker Pro (for User Connections), FileMaker Go, and FileMaker WebDirect — to connect to FileMaker Server. Each user may connect to FileMaker Server with only one client at a time.

What are the benefits of FLT?

Many people use iPad, iPhone, Windows, Mac, or the web throughout their day. Licensing by device is complicated because it forces you to figure out what devices people are using. It is much easier to determine how many users you have.

At the end of the FLT contract, your customers have 2 options:

  1. Renew the subscription.
  2. De-install software.
