In the ELM licenses pane of the Server administrator, you can assign, change and revoke mobile licenses, and keep track of their status. A memoQ server can give out licenses from a license pool that defines how many licenses are available altogether. There are separate pools for translator pro, project manager, and web licenses.

An ELM (Enterprise Mobile Licensing) license is a mobile license that you 'lend' to the user for a number of days. The license remains with the user for the time you specify. ELM licenses are useful if a translator or reviewer does not have a memoQ license of her own, and she needs to be able to work without an Internet connection.

Instead of ELM, memoQ server can also distribute Concurrent-Access Licenses (CAL). This is more economic than ELM because the licenses are taken only for the time the user runs memoQ, and they automatically return to the pool when the user closes memoQ. For example, another user who works in a different time zone can use the same license. However, CAL licenses do not work if the user is not connected to the memoQ server. This means she needs an Internet connection all the time she is working with memoQ.

memoQ server can use either the ELM or the CAL licensing method, but it cannot mix them. At first, memoQ server will use CAL licensing, but you can switch to ELM licensing here in the Server Administrator, under Configuration and logging. If you use memoQ on a terminal server, and you want your memoQ server to manage licenses for the terminal server, too, you need to use CAL licensing.
