Manual  "Checkouts" tabbed page

On the Checkouts tabbed page you can administratively determine, whether a user may check out Floating licenses. The checkout happens in the respective module under ? menu -> Licenses (F9) -> tabbed page Checkout. See Section, “"Checkout" tabbed page”.

Thereby the amount of available Floating licenses is reduced for the before determined time period. Then the checked out license can be used on the respective computer up to the end of the checkout period. On the license server the license is blocked until the defined checkout period ends.

So a Floating license can be used as quasi "nodelocked" in a certain time period (on a journey for example).

The right to checkout Floating licenses can optionally be restricted for single users.
