Autodesk's New Seat Usage Reporting

Overview

Now more than ever is a great time to switch to Autodesk's subscription model. Autodesk just anounced that they are now providing usage reports on their Autodesk software. You will now be able to know what software (specific product and year-version) is being used, and how often. You will be able to export the data in CSV format, as well as see bar graphs and pie charts for easier reading.

The new Autodesk usage reporting feature can be found under the contract manager's Autodesk account, under the Reporting section, listed as Seat Usage. See image below:

Limitations

You will need to have an active subscription plan (please contact us directly if you are interested in using the Autodesk subscription model) and be using software that is compatible with the reporting service. AutoCAD, Revit, and Civil 3D are just a few for which the seat usage reporting will work. For a complete list please visit Autodesk's list of supported products for the seat usage reporting feature.

 Please note there are some products which are not supported and those are also listed in the linked page provided above.
