Subscribing to Autodesk products is the most flexible and economical way to access the latest software you need. Choose the term that works best for you and enjoy complimentary installation support and licensing support when you purchase your subscription through Cadpro.
A Named User is a person who has been assigned to a product or service by an administrator, who manages permissions in their Autodesk Account. Each named user is an individual with a unique Autodesk ID. The number of named users you can assign per subscription is determined by the total number of subscriptions purchased for that product.
Named users manage products and services in their own Autodesk Account. When an administrator assigns a user to a product, they receive a confirmation email explaining how to create their own account.
Note: The email address used to create a user account must be the same email address that the administrator used to assign access.
