4.6.5. Adding Floating Seats

You can add floating seats to an existing floating license to increase the number of users available. Adding additional seats to an existing floating license may affect its maintenance expiration date.
  1. Log on to your My Intel account from
  2. Access the Self‑Service Licensing Center.
  3. In the Add Seat License tab, click Add Seats to access the My Add Seat License page.
  4. On the Add Seats page, select a product to which you want to add additional seats, and click Next.
  5. Select the product with the seats you want to apply and click Next.
  6. Type the number of additional seats you want to add to your floating license in the Number of Seats to Add box.
When you add additional seats to an existing floating license, the new maintenance subscription term of the floating license is calculated by adding the total number of maintenance months for the existing and new seats, and then dividing by the total number of seats. Any partial number is rounded up to the nearest whole number.

Floating License Example

If you have an existing floating license with ten seats that expires in five months and you purchase two additional seats, your updated floating license maintenance subscription would expire in seven months for all twelve seats.
