If you have ordered a license please contact with details of the email used. They will assign the license to your account and then you can login.

Install License

When your license has been assigned, login again and then you will see that it is available.
Select it and click Install License.

YoYotta installed

The main window will get wider showing more buttons. The license is now installed and can used on this computer whilst online or offline.

Now see how to get started...
Quick Start

If you need to use the software on another Mac, there is an Uninstall License button. Click this and then the license will be available to install on another computer.
When the license has been uninstalled, the size of the window will be reduced. However you can still open the Project Browser to check on previous jobs.

Expiring license

v4 licenses expire when the subscription ends, however the license can be installed with a shorter expiration date. For example you may want to install the license on a client's or freelancer's laptop for just 2 weeks.
To do this log in to the YoYotta account and in the calendar select an expiration date, then click Install License. Once it's installed you can log out. After the expiry date the license will automatically return to you and can be used on another system.

Expiring license installed

The license expiry date is shown in the table, after this date the license will be available to install on another computer. This is useful if a production needs a license for a few weeks, after that time you don't need to have access to the computer to uninstall the license. If the license is still needed you could screen share to the Mac, log in and install it again.
