Adding a new user to the subscription

Once a slot it vacated, a new user can then be added by simply using the product with the new user logon.

If not logged on, make sure to log in with the same Xact Account, do not create a new account. A prompt may be displayed to add the new user, or, on some other product you may need to open “My Xact Account” inside the tab in Act!.


A notification is displayed followed by a prompt to add the new user to the subscription.

Note: Check the following if the above notification or prompt is not displayed:

  • You must be logged on to the Xact Account
  • Choose the subscription on the list and click "Select Subscription", - or -
  • If subscription was already selected, choose “Change subscription” link (may also read “Click here to change subscription for current user”)
    Click “Select Subscription” to re-apply the subscription.
