Special features for extension licenses/upgrade from ProCall 7 Enterprise to ProCall 8 Enterprise

  • If extension licenses are added, they are displayed separately (without separate information on the SMA, the terms of the basic license apply).
  • When upgrading from ProCall 7 Enterprise to ProCall 8 Enterprise with a completed SA, this is valid as an SMA until the end of the term and is displayed in UCConnect. Since this ends automatically, a new SMA must be actively concluded. 
  • (warning) Licenses managed via online licensing cannot be imported into earlier ProCall Enterprise or MetaDirectory Enterprise versions.
