Difference between a admin license, full and a guest license

Difference between a admin license, full and a guest license

There are three types of licenses:

  •  Admin License

An Administrator can assign administrator permissions to each full license account.

In the self-service mode, each administrator can add additional full and guest licenses as well as Data Rooms and assign both full and guest licenses to employees and guests.

  •  Full license

This license is usually assigned to an internal employee.

A full license user has access to full idgard® functionality: create Boxes, upload and download documents, write messages, chat (individually adjustable in each PrivacyBox) as well as create their own PrivacyBoxes and invite guests with a guest license.

A full license user can use all clients and be integrated into Active Directory/LDAP Guest License. 

  • Guest license

This license is usually assigned to external partners or customers for secure data exchange and bidirectional communication.

A guest license user can use all features in the Boxes to which they have been invited (permissions are individually adjustable in each Box).

Guest license users cannot create their own Boxes nor assign guest licenses.

Certain clients can only be used by guest licenses for an additional monthly fee.

Guest licenses cannot be assigned via LDAP/EMS. 

In addition, a so-called read link/one-time access to a Box can be granted by using the feature „share“ without a fixed license. In this case, the invitee can only download files from the Box. However, they cannot upload documents to the Box or communicate with the sender. Consequently, this is only suitable for secure transmission of documents in one direction, but not for permanent communication.
