Access to an account

HI;

I am wondering if more than one user can have access to a same account simultaneously?

    I don't think the system has been designed for more than one user on the one account working simultaneously rather to have multiple users with different accounts collaborating and being able to track each users history within the doc.

    But yes you can login a number of time without issues, this is how you run dual screen's. When working on Onshape I am also constantly switching computers and have multiple browsers open with different browser tabs to jump around between doc's and doc tabs, if in the same doc twice I will see the little B come up on top right hand corner. However I have only ever used my login for myself not sure if things start to fall over if commands are happening simultaneously, I think it should throw an error to stop gaming the system.

    @morteza_marivani - an Onshape account is for only one individual and it is specifically against our End User License Agreement to allow other users to access your account.  The specifics can be found here:  https://www.onshape.com/eula

    That said, you're always allowed to open multiple tabs of Onshape in your browser to work on many documents simultaneously, or run Onshape on all of your devices at once.  The only stipulation is that you are the only person who can access your account.
