What is it?
The Billing & Licensing Section, within the Admin Console, is where you manage the number of licenses required and keep track of all invoices from Proteus.
Why is it needed?
A licence is required for every user. The number of users you can add, is capped to the number of licenses you have. Once you have reached this cap, you will not be able to add any new users and instead will be redirected to the Billing and Licensing section to purchase more Licenses.
Likewise inactive licenses can be removed in the billing and licensing section by reducing the number of Licenses, so that you are not being charged for licences you are not using.
The invoices page gives you access to all your invoices form Proteus. Any changes in the number of licences is automatically reflected here.
