Frequently Asked Questions

How many licenses do I need to purchase?

Each Workshare product has a licensing (and pricing) model to match usage.

  • Workshare Compare: You should purchase one license for one individual user or one license for the number of users you require adding them on the checkout form. Each license is then valid for use on three separate devices registered to individual users, for example, their desktop, phone and laptop.
  • Workshare Secure: This product is normally licensed by the number of users in the firm whose emails you need to protect at the desktop, and by the number of server instances deployed if you’re protecting non-desktop sharing. We recommend you speak to us and request a quote for Secure products.
  • Workshare Transact: Licensed on a per-deal basis. We have options here; you can choose to buy deal packs upfront or pay-as-you-go. There are also data hosting options. Again, call us to discuss which licensing and pricing approach works best if you’re interested in Transact.

One license per user or one license for multiple users?

Although you are able to purchase individual licenses for each user, we advise purchasing one unique license for several users as you'll have only one expiry date and need to manage one license only.

You can add several users to one license by using the "+" on the "Added Users" section on the purchase form.

The end users then create an account in using their corporate email address, installs Workshare Compare and when the license dialogue appears, input the credentials used for each individual account. 

Note: For larger deployments, please contact our support team and we will provide you with a licensing option. Also, if you do not have a corporate email address (e.g. or the email domain of the buyer and end user are different, please let us know and we will assist.

Workshare Compare and Professional, what's the difference?

Workshare Professional 10 is our desktop software for document comparison, metadata removal and secure file sharing included in our comparison solution Workshare Compare.

Included as well in our Workshare Compare proposition is Workshare Compare Server that allows you to integrate our comparison engine in the platforms that you use and accessible in the server. 

Can I purchase on behalf of the end user(s)?

Yes, you can. When you purchase a license you become the license administrator and the end-users just need to activate the license on their machines:

  1. On the online checkout, use your corporate email address. You will receive the invoice and instructions to download Workshare Compare that you can share with the end-users.
  2. The end-user then creates an account in using their corporate email address, installs Workshare Compare and when the license dialogue appears, input the credentials used for each individual account. Check our licensing guide.

Note: For larger deployments, please contact our support team and we will provide you with a licensing option. Also, if you do not have a corporate email address (e.g. or the email domain of the buyer and end user are different, please let us know and we will assist.


What is the minimum term for the subscription?

For Workshare Compare and Secure product subscriptions, there is a 12-month term on the usage of each license.

Workshare Transact deal packs have to be used within a 12 month period. In all cases, we will get in touch before your license is due to expire.

Can I add more licenses to an existing account?

Yes, you can:

  1. Access to our online checkout form and purchase new licenses to your account. On the checkout, use your corporate email address so the new license will be associated with your existing account.
  2. Contact our sales team with this request.

How do I renew my license?

If you previously bought through our online store, you have two options:

  1. By default, Auto-Renew is turned on and you don’t have to do anything when your subscription expires (but you can turn it off). With Auto-Renew turned on, your subscription is renewed automatically after 12 months. Payment is taken from the default card, which is initially the card used for the original purchase. You can change the default card.
  2. If you are not sure if your license will auto-renew or you disabled it, you can manually renew online through the Workshare Support Portal.

If you bought directly from our sales team or via a reseller, contact our sales team to renew.

If you are experiencing any issues during renewal, contact our sales team.
