Note! Importing user data uses one Cortado Server user license per user. Installing the Cortado Server automatically installs five demo licenses. These licenses are for users and devices, so every user session on the Cortado server by either a device or the web app, uses up one license. In the section Overview of License Manager, you will find details about license acti­vation and update subscription.
