Intuiface is available in one of four Platform plans - Trial, Essential, Premier, Enterprise - and there are rules governing how experiences can be opened, edited, and played across those plans. This article discusses those cross-plan rules.
- No Intuiface account can contain a mixture of Platform plans. This article discusses plan differences between two different Intuiface accounts
- To understand how licensing works, see this article.
The experiences you create using Intuiface include information about which Platform plan is associated with the Composer used to create them. This means there are not just four Platform tiers but also four kinds of experiences – Trial, Essential, Premier, and Enterprise. By keeping this idea in mind, the rules governing how to work with experiences across editions and platforms will become clearer.
The scope of Platform Essential is best understood by noting what Platform Premier and Platform Enterprise add to the Essential feature set.
The most notable features unique to Platform Premier and Platform Enterprise:
- Ability to access any external data source, business logic, or connected device at runtime
- Sharing published experiences with write and play-only privileges
The most notable feature exclusive to Platform Enterprise
Platform Trial is almost identical to Platform Enterprise. The only differences are 1) the Trial must have a live Internet connection at all times, and 2) when a new version of Composer and Player is released, Trial accounts must upgrade.
Feature details for all of the Platform plans can be found on the Pricing page.
Account limitation of the Trial plan
Trial experiences are limited to the Intuiface account that created them. Two Intuiface accounts, both running Platform Trial, cannot open each other's experiences.
Can a Trial Composer open, play, and save experiences created using a paid Composer?
Yes, but be aware that the use of a Trial Composer means any changes you make can only be saved to a Trial version of the experience. The result is an experience that can only be opened, edited, and saved by that Intuiface account's Trial Composers. (Remember, it is not possible for the same Intuiface account to have both Trial and paid Composers.) The experience can no longer be opened in paid Composers until a paid Composer is installed on a PC used to run the trial.
Can a Trial experience be opened in a Trial Composer on any PC other than the original Trial PC?
Yes, if both Trial Composers are part of the same Intuiface account.
Can a Trial experience be opened in a higher-tier Composer on any PC other than the original Trial PC?
No, Trial experiences cannot be opened in paid Composers on any PC other than the one used during the trial. In other words, you must first - on the PC used to create the trial experience - upgrade Composer to a paid tier and then save that experience before opening it in a paid Composer, of any Platform tier, on any other PC.
Can a Platform Essential Composer open, play, and save experiences created using Platform Premier or Enterprise Composer?
Yes, but be aware that custom Interface Assets added using the Platform Premier or Enterprise Composer must be manually removed before saving the experience. Platform Essential does include the ability to create, edit, or save Interface Assets.
