Managing the License Key

If you’re unable to receive the latest plugin update, the number one thing to check is to ensure that your License Key is entered into the plugin.

Go to the Simply Schedule Appointments Settings Tab, and click the Manage License option. This should open the License Key field, where you’ll be able to enter your license number. When you’re done click Validate.

Where to get your License Key:

Resetting Your License Key

If your license key was already entered, but you’re still not getting updates. We’ll need to go ahead and reset the License Key field.

To do this – Delete the license key, and click the Validate button. Now you can re-enter the license key, and click Validate again.

Expired License Subscription

When your SSA license key expires, the plugin stops receiving new updates.

If you decide not to renew your license, we cannot guarantee that SSA will continue to work. Without updates and bug support, the plugin is vulnerable to developing conflicts with newer WordPress, theme, or plugin releases.
