Guide: How to Automate BriefCatch Licensing with Subscription Sign-In

New with BriefCatch version 2.5.3.0, the Subscription Sign-In feature makes managing your BriefCatch license easier.

Users no longer have to install license files to activate BriefCatch. Simply enter your BriefCatch username and password and we handle the rest! When your license renews or changes, the software will detect this and automatically extend your license, keeping BriefCatch active.

To enable this option, click About under the BriefCatch tab in the Word ribbon.

A prompt will appear, asking you to enter your BriefCatch username and password.

Enter your information then click Ok. BriefCatch will take a quick moment to look up your account information, and if successful, you will see the following message:

BriefCatch Subscribtion Sign-In: Finished!

BriefCatch Subscribtion Sign-In: Finished!

Click Ok and you're finished!

This will keep your current license updated automatically after your next renewal. No more licenses to install! 🙂

Existing Users

If you're an existing BriefCatch 2 user with a previously installed license, you will see a Sign Out button. This is because the software is signed in using your existing license. You will need to click Sign Out to remove your current license.
