  6. Next, you’ll see the current activations of your iSpring Suite license. Specify the email addresses of the authors who will be creating courses in the new iSpring Suite Max.

  7. The number of authors is limited to the number of users of your current iSpring subscription. For example, if you have a license for one user, add your email address. If you purchased a license for three users, you can enter the emails of up to three authors – those users of your subscription. Please note that licenses for users without confirmed emails will be deactivated.

    Note: If you are going to author courses in iSpring Suite Max, you need to add your email address to the list of authors. If you don’t add your email, you’ll be able to access iSpring Space and manage the list of authors, but you will not be able to create courses.

  8. Your space is ready. You will receive a username and password by email, and the authors you specified will receive an email with a self-registration link.
