How to activate your new Office Timeline Add-in license



This article will guide you through activating your new Pro, Pro+ or Expert license. When you enter a product key, Office Timeline activates itself by validating the key with our license server.  In corporate environments, firewalls sometimes restrict this process from taking place.  Office Timeline has a manual activation process designed for this scenario.

NOTE: If you installed Office Timeline Free Edition earlier and are now activating it after several weeks or months, please make sure you install the latest version before following these steps.  We are constantly enhancing the product, including improvements in the Activation process.  Download the latest version before you continue.
