Activate SPDocKit

This article explains how to activate SPDocKit farm and workstation license.

Online Activation

Farm license

The Farm license is tied to a farm ID and can be activated only on servers with SharePoint installed. This also means that you can activate a single Farm license on all servers in one SharePoint farm.

  1. From the left navigation bar on the Backstage Screen select Help and click on the License Details section to begin the activation process.

  2. Fill in the Name, Email, Company, and Product Key fields.

    The product key is a combination of letters and numbers. In order to claim your activation key, please log in to our customers portal. There you will be able to track your orders and download the latest application versions you are entitled to. When a major upgrade becomes available, all customers with a valid software assurance will have their profile refreshed with new version download link and a brand new activation key.

    Once you have entered the product key it will be validated against our activation server. If your key is valid, a green check mark will appear next to it.

  3. Click the Activate button to start the activation process. Activation takes a couple of seconds and is a one time process.
