Autodesk Transition to Named User | Recent Changes and Paths to Move Forward

September 29, 2020 12:00 PM EDT - 1:00 PM EDT

 Autodesk Transition to Named User

What’s in a name? Everything. Autodesk has plans to lose your number-literally! By launching new plans that are based on people and retiring plans based on serial numbers.

During this presentation, Rowena Harry, Senior Subscription Specialist of Microsol Resources, will provide an overview and timeline on Autodesk’s recent and upcoming changes and how it impacts customer’s existing Autodesk software. You will also hear from Joseph Freund, our AEC Applications Specialist, who will walk you through the technical workflows that are involved in this transition. We will conclude with a Q&A portion to address questions from the audience.

After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Verify how the Autodesk transition to Named User affects their current and upcoming Autodesk software purchasing decisions.
  • Compare the benefits of Autodesk’s default Standard plan to Autodesk’s just released Premium plan.
  • Confirm eligibility to switch from a single product to a comprehensive set of tools with an Autodesk industry collection; and
  • Explore the resources available to help transition
