* What is a user license?
Your number of paid user licenses determines how many people can log into Stratus at the same time, as well as how many
mobile devices can be activated (two mobile devices per user license). With any StudioPlus product you can create
as many user accounts as you like, your user license simply limits how many of those users can log in at the same time.
