How Does Checklist Licensing Work?


Checklick is all about one thing - checklists! If your organization is on a trial, or a paid plan, you can build your own checklists, and use them to evaluate people. 

But maybe you want to make your checklist available to other organizations. That's where checklist licensing comes in.

With licensing, you can make your checklist requestable by any other organizations in Checklick. You can set payment and use terms, and even set an expiry date for the licence. 

When another organization requests a licence to your checklist, you can accept or deny the request. You can also end the licence at any time.

Checklick also allows you to sublicence your checklist to other organization. This option is usually used by large national organizations that want to provide a checklist to their members, but have it be administered by a regional authority (like a provincial or state association).

If you're a visual person, here's an overview of how licences and sublicenses work together:


In the example above:

  • the National Parkour Association built and owns the checklist "Learn to Parkour"
  • the National Parkour Association licenced "Learn to Parkour" to the Ontario Parkour Association
  • the Ontario Parkour Association sublicenced "Learn to Parkour" to the Toronto Parkour Club

How does licensing affect billing?

Whether you are on a self-serve plan (for example, 10 active evaluators per month) or a managed plan (for example 2000 active evaluators per year), any evaluations that happen using your checklist will count towards your plan limits. In the example above, if the Toronto Parkour Club has 5 evaluators using the "Learn to Parkour" checklist this month, the National Parkour Association's active evaluator count will increase by 5.

It's also important to note that Checklick doesn't collect licence or sublicence fees on your behalf. For example, if the National Parkour Association set a $15 / month fee on their licence to the Ontario Parkour Association, Checklick does not actually facilitate that payment. It's up to the organizations to collect and manage payments outside of the Checklick platform.
