Enterprise Licensing

Final Draft, a Cast & Crew Company, values its relationships with schools, educational organizations, studios, and production companies.

If your organization, company, or school needs several licenses for multiple employees, students or enterprise usage, a Final Draft Site License is required. With the Final Draft Site License, every member of your organization can easily use the latest version of Final Draft. When a new version of Final Draft is available, you don’t have to worry about upgrading – it’s available at no additional cost.

To request volume licensing for your organization or business, complete the appropriate form below.

Final Draft is used by studios and production companies worldwide

Volume License Pre-Sale Questions

Our group is less than 5 users, can we get a lower rate?

Unfortunately, the minimum user count for a Site License is 5 users.

Is there a perpetual enterprise license?
No, we only offer the yearly Site License subscription at this time.
Is there a portal or dashboard to manage users?
No, the Site License does not have a portal. The License Admin can always request the number of activations used by contacting the assigned Enterprise Sales Associate.
How much are renewals?
We do not increase nor decrease pricing based on renewal year. The rate is the same for new and renewal purchases.
Do I have to cancel my renewals in advance?

Renewals are not automatic and we do not save any credit card information. You choose to manually renew each year. An Enterprise Sales Associate will contact you prior to your renewal as a reminder.

Can my institution use single-user licenses on its computers instead?

Unfortunately, single-user license use on institution machines violates the EULA that you must agree to when installing this license.

I have an old enterprise license. Can I purchase a discounted upgrade to the Site License?

We would be happy to help you upgrade to the newest version of Final Draft. Since the Site License is a yearly subscription with pricing benefits built-in, there is no “upgrade price.” Please contact our Enterprise Sales Associate through the quote request form:

Are monthly payment plans available or is the Site License a subscription fee each year?

The Site License is only available as a yearly subscription at this time. We do not offer monthly plans.

How do I replace or remove a user so another user can take their place?

If a user leaves your institution, you can have that user deactivate on their computer. In most cases, you will not need to purchase additional users as long as your simultaneous user count does not change.  You can then simply have the replacement user activate on their machine. If you have questions about the total number of activations available, you can always contact your assigned Enterprise Sales Associate.

Can I activate a user without additional costs if they lost a machine or hard drive?

If a user’s machine is lost or reformatted you will not need to purchase additional users as long as your simultaneous user count does not change.  You can simply have them activate on their replacement machine. If you have questions about the total number of activations available, you can always contact your assigned Enterprise Sales Associate.

Can my users access Final Draft Site License on both institution and personal machines?

Yes, our special License Agreement allows for use on both types of machines.

Can my users access Final Draft Site License on both institution and personal machines at no additional cost?

Yes, each unique user can use the Final Draft Site License on one institution machine and one personal machine for the price of one user.

I had a Site License and it is now expired. Can I renew at this time without paying for the expired time frame?

Yes, if you renew today, your new one-year subscription will begin on the date that you indicate on your License Agreement Info Sheet. You will get a full year of use. Please contact our Enterprise Sales Associate through the quote request form:
