Signing in and License Management - All about the Account Management Portal

Account Management in SketchUp

In this article you will find everything about the Account Management Portal. Click on the link below to quickly jump to a topic, or scroll through to read it all!



Every Trimble ID has an Account that can be managed in the AMP. If you bought a Subscription, you are also the Admin/Owner of the bought Subscription and you will have the ability to assign a Member or End User.

A Trimble ID can have more than one account, for instance, they receive a Plan from another company or buy from another reseller.


If you bought a Subscription, you are the Admin or Owner of that Plan. The Plan is automatically assigned to the Trimble ID (=email address) of the order. If you bought more than one seat, the first seat is automatically assigned to the Admin, unless you specify otherwise when ordering.


AMP-Account Management Portal. This is where you can manage your account(s)!

End User

An end user is the one who is going to use SketchUp or any other application that is included with the Plan.

Included Applications

Each Plan gives access to different Applications (SketchUp, LayOut, StyleBuilder, Trimble Connect for Business, Viewers, Sefaira, but also SketchUp For Web or Shop)


With a Plan, you have access to the included applications of that plan for a period of time or duration (eg. one year).

A Plan can have more then one Seat.


A Seat is part of a Plan and can be assigned to a Member or end user with a Trimble ID. A Seat is not a Device.


There are different types of devices, Computers (Desktop or Laptop), Mobile (Phone,tablet) and Viewers (Hololens,Oculus etc) With one seat, you may be logged in on two devices of each specific type.

Trimble ID

A Trimble ID is an email address with a first and last name. The email address is the unique identifier, therefore, it cannot be changed.


A Member is an End User that takes one Seat of the Plan.
