Note: This article is a part of the "Getting Started" series. You can read a full overview of the series and the included articles here.

Creating a trial

You should create a new trial if you have never before signed up for Plecto using your work-email. This can be done directly from this page.

The trial lasts for 14 days and grants you access to all of Plecto's current features with no limitations. This allows you to test all features and integrations properly so you can make the most out of your trial period.

"A user with this e-mail already exists"

If you see this error when signing up, it means that a user with the entered email already exists in Plecto. You should instead log in to Plecto from this link, from which you will be prompted to create a new trial.

You can reset your password from this page if you have forgotten it.

Inviting employees

You can invite as many employees as you would like to your organization in Plecto. This allows the employees to login to Plecto and view the different dashboards and reports you have created. You can read more about inviting employees to join your organization here.

There is no extra cost associated with inviting employees to Plecto if they are only invited to view the dashboards and reports and not being shown on either of these. This is the case as Plecto only charges you for the number of users that you are receiving data for throughout a day in the current month. Read more about pricing and billing here.

Plecto also allows you to limit what dashboards and reports the different employees have access to. This allows you to decide and manage who can view and edit what. Read more about this feature here.

Next steps: Once you have created a trial and invited your employees (optional), you are ready to proceed to the next article in the "Getting Started" series: Connecting your Data.
