Which license to choose?

Will you be the only one using ManicTime? Read about licenses here.

We offer on premise license (License) and a cloud subscription.

On premise license (License)

What do you get

With on premise license you get:

  • ManicTime Server
  • all features of ManicTime Windows version
  • Mac version
  • Linux version

How does it work

With this license, all data remains on your hardware. You install and manage ManicTime Server. If you plan to manage your own ManicTime server, you need to have some technical knowledge, for example what is IP, firewall, router, database...

Who is it for

It is great for:

  • larger companies and for any company which handles their own IT. It does require some technical knowledge to setup the server and deploy the clients.
  • for technical individual users.


License will work forever on versions released within a year. After a year you can continue to use old version for as long as you like or renew for another year. If you renew before the year is up, we offer 50% discount.

License is per user, so "number of users" = "number of licenses". Each user can have up to 10 devices. Archived users do not require a license.

You can buy license here.

You can renew old license here.


You can install and use the server with trial license for 30 days for up to 10 users. If you need trial for longer period or for more users, please send us an email at support@manictime.com.

Cloud subscription

What do you get

With Cloud subscription you get:

  • ManicTime Server, which we manage for you
  • all features of ManicTime Windows version
  • Mac version
  • Linux version

How does it work

License works while subscription is active. Once subscription is no longer active, you can not use ManicTime any more.
If you are a single user, choose "For individual use". In this plan you can not add other users, so it is just for one person.

"For organisations" license allows you to add other users. You can change the plan after you sign up.

Who is it for

Cloud subscription is great for individual users and companies who do not want to run their own ManicTime Server. It requires no technical knowledge.

How much is it

You pay monthly or yearly and the price is based on the number of users. You can see the price per user per period here.


We offer no discounts for cloud version.
