License keys are used to specify what MainBoss modules you are licensed to use. For example, you might have a license key for MainBoss requests, work orders and planned maintenance, but not for MainBoss Service or inventory control. License keys also contain other information; for example, if your license allows you to have a maximum of 10 MainBoss users, that information is stored in the license key.

A license key has the form

AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA

where each A character is either a letter or a number.

You will need to enter a license key when you first install MainBoss. You will also need to enter license keys if you change your license, and whenever you renew your Annual Support Plan. In all these situations, you will be sent the license keys you need to enter.

The presence or absence of license keys will change the appearance of many MainBoss windows. For example, if you have not licensed the Inventory module, you will not see functions related to inventory in the control panel and in other parts of MainBoss.
