Available for: Enterprise plan
Free Restricted license is automatically assigned to users who join Enterprise subscription that doesn’t have enough paid licenses to assign as Members. It allows users to view and comment on boards in the teams they participate in, and to request edit access and the corresponding license from Company Admins.
Users receive Free Restricted license in one of the cases:
- The user is being auto-captured in Organization that has insufficient Full licenses and no Day Passes during their registration in Miro.
- The user is invited to the team in the Organization that has insufficient Full licenses and no Day Passes. When multiple users are invited at the same time, they receive licenses by order of their email addresses in the list of invitees. If an organization has insufficient seats, users at the end of the list will receive a Free Restricted license. In this case, the inviter would receive a pop-up notification about limited access for some users.
Free Restricted members can view and comment on boards in the teams they participate in, and to request edit access and the corresponding license from Company Admins. They can also discover and join teams in the Organization along with other members.
Free Restricted members can’t invite new users to the team or board even if it is allowed to other members. However, they receive the right to invite users to the Organization and Teams if granted the Company Admin role.
Company Admin experience
Company Admin can upgrade user license from Free Restricted to Full or Occasional, but not the other way. Also, a Free Restricted license can’t be upgraded automatically, so when more Full licenses are added to a subscription, they are not automatically distributed among existing users with a Free Restricted license.
When a user with a Free Restricted license is requesting editing access, Company Admins receive an email with requests to assign a paid license.
