To use Simumatik within your school/company, the first step is to create an organization that will hold the different users. In order to do so, you can ask for a quotation in the get a quotation page.
Once you are ready to buy the subscription, you will receive a serial key to enable the organization. First, log in with your personal account to the Simumatik app. Then click on the hamburguer menu and click on Activate Organization key.
A modal will be shown where you can enter your serial-key. After creating the organization, your account will be added as an admin, in order to allow you inviting other users and individually control their permissions.
Every personal account has its own plan, and can also be part of one or several organizations. All the content created within the organization is shared between its participants. On log in, you can choose if you want to work on your personal space or within an organization if available:
When working with your personal space, the content you create is yours and it can't be accessed by anyone else. Your benefits will depend on your personal plan.
When working within an organization, your account inherits all the organization benefits. However, your permissions can be limited by the administrators.
When the organization is created your account will be the administrator of that organization so that you can add other users to the organization account and manage their individual access rights.
Every personal Simumatik account can be a member of one or more organizations. When working within an organization, the personal account inherits all the features of the organization's subscription.
