We are excited to include offline access to your electronic licenses as a brand new feature for 2020! Our digital subscribers let us know through feedback during the last year, that this would be a great feature for those who need access where internet connection is impossible. Access to your license offline is provided on a lease basis. The length of the lease is up to you, or your licensee if you have shared use.
Access is provided through version 3.0 of our viewing software. Once downloaded and installed, the app is accessed via a desktop shortcut which opens up for login once a lease has been assigned to you. All of the same copyright restrictions apply, so printing and copying are not permitted.
An offline lease acts as one use of your current licenses and may be revoked by the licensee if another user needs to login. It is recommended that you have a pool of 2 or more licenses for shared use, if you feel that there will be regular offline leasing.
Online connectivity is required initially so that your current leases can sync with the viewer. Once they are updated you can access publications offline for the assigned number of days.
