eResource Scheduler uses the same setup for trial as well as paid versions of the software. License key defines whether the software is being used for trial or as licensed version.
Tip: If you are trying / evaluating eResource Scheduler, then we strongly recommend that you do so with your actual data (actual resource names, projects, bookings), so that if you end up upgrading to paid licensed version, then you can simply apply the new license key on the same database and don’t have to restore a fresh database and build your data all over again.
