FAQ

Is Altium 365 a new product I need to install? Is it replacing Altium Designer?

No, Altium 365 is a cloud platform that works in conjunction and is tightly integrated within Altium Designer. You don’t have to install Altium 365, all you have to do is to activate it in a few clicks here. It does not replace Altium Designer but rather adds a new layer of capabilities including cloud storage with version control for your design files, design review and markup from any browser, and faster data exchange between ECAD and MCAD tools.

How are the new subscription plans different from my current subscription?

All of the new subscription plans include the maintenance and technology updates you were already getting with your subscription, plus several new features and capabilities.

The Standard Plan includes cloud storage and sharing for your electronic designs with Altium 365, the latest technology updates, 24/5 live chat support, and access to the AltiumLive community.

The Pro Plan includes component and data management with Altium 365, priority support, unlimited access to on-demand training materials, and five hours of dedicated onboarding with a Customer Success Manager assigned to your account.

Does this change the price of the subscription?

No, your subscription price does not change. All of our current subscribers are automatically upgraded to the Standard Subscription Plan, which is the same price as your current subscription. The Standard Plan is a more advanced version of your Altium Designer Subscription and now includes a wide range of Altium 365 services. The Pro Subscription Plan includes additional services and capabilities including component and data management and therefore costs more. You can choose whichever plan best suits your needs.

What is the difference between the Standard and Pro Plans? How do I know which one is a better fit for me?

Each plan includes maintenance and technology updates for Altium Designer. What’s different is the level of services you get from Altium and the capabilities of the Altium 365 cloud platform that each plan unlocks.

The Standard Plan gives you cloud storage for your libraries and designs natively integrated within Altium Designer, new collaboration capabilities through web-based design review and global sharing, and access to regular support.

The Pro Plan includes all of the features included in the Standard Plan, and more advanced capabilities around components and design data management (templates, lifecycles, more advanced MCAD collaboration features, etc).

With the Pro plan you also get unlimited access to on-demand training materials and five hours of dedicated onboarding with a Customer Success Manager assigned to your account. See the full comparison of the plans here.

You can start with the Standard Plan and then move up to Pro. If you are a current subscriber, you already have access to the Standard plan and can activate Altium 365 here. You can request to evaluate the Pro plan here.

What happens to my data stored on Altium 365 if I do not renew my subscription?

Your data is always yours and you can extract it from Altium 365 at any time. When your subscription expires, you will lose the ability to add and modify data, but you will keep read-only access to all the data already stored on the platform. You will be able to extract and save it locally, see this documentation article on how to do that. See our data retention policy for more details on how we handle your data.

How do I know my data is secure?
Do I need Altium 365 to manage my licenses? Is it the same as the Altium license server?

No, you do not need Altium 365 to manage your licenses. It does not change anything about how you already manage your Altium Designer licenses.

We are using Private License Server or Single Site licenses, do I need to change my licenses to On-Demand to use Altium 365?

No, you can use Altium 365 with every Altium Designer license type.

Can all versions of Altium Designer work with Altium 365?

No, only Altium Designer 20.1.14 and up are compatible with Altium 365.

I am an Altium Vault / Concord Pro customer, some of the Altium 365 functionality sounds similar to one of these products, how does it work?

There are indeed conceptual similarities, and all of these are intended to help you better manage your design data and collaborate. 

Altium Vault is no longer undergoing active development and is superseded by Altium Concord Pro.

Altium 365 features that come with the Pro Plan are nearly identical to the data management capabilities in Altium Concord Pro, and there will be no practical difference in your everyday work between both platforms. However, there are two big advantages to using Altium 365.

First, Altium Concord Pro comes as an on-site server you will have to install, configure, and manage yourself. Altium 365 is a cloud platform that requires nothing to install or update. Its cloud nature allows for additional functionality like global access and sharing via the web.

Secondly, there are differences in licensing and pricing. Altium Concord Pro is sold as a separate product. With the Pro Subscription Plan, we packaged everything into one plan so you don’t have to worry about managing multiple products and licenses. The Pro Plan is also more cost-effective in most cases (please discuss the pricing details with your account manager).

Since all of these products are built on the same platform you can easily move your on-premise installation to the cloud. We offer complimentary data re-hosting services from Vault / Concord Pro to the Pro Subscription Plan for all of our customers, you can learn more about our data rehosting program here.
