Does Naviate take a license on startup ?

1 min. readlast update: 10.17.2023

When starting Revit together with Naviate, we will check if there is Naviate licenses allocated to your user login.

That check will make sure to have the correct Naviate ribbons visible or greyed out, depending on what type of licenses you have been allocated by your licenses admin.

We will never take a license when logging into Revit and Naviate. The license will be taken (allocated) first time when you start (click) a feature in Naviate.
