Assign Premium licenses

Screencastify Premium licenses can be assigned, reassigned, or revoked any time from the License Manager, which you can access at


You may only assign licenses to email addresses that are tied to Google accounts.

The first thing you'll see in the License Manager is the number of total Premium licenses you have, how many have already been assigned, and how many are still available to assign.

Licenses can be assigned either manually or automatically (based on your email domain). 

Manually assign licenses

  1. Go to your License Manager
  2. Under "Assign License", enter the email address of the user you want to grant a Premium license to
  3. Click the orange plus button or hit enter
  4. Repeat as necessary


When you assign someone a Premium license, they will not be automatically notified. Send them an email with the good news!

Bulk assign licenses

You can also bulk upload a list of emails that you want to assign licenses to.  Click here for step-by-step instructions.

Automatically assign licenses

  1. Go to your License Manager
  2. Check the box next to "Automatically assign licenses to your (Google Apps) domain users"
  3. Click the toggle next to "Automated Assignment" and enter your domain name (e.g. "")
  4. Click outside the text box to save

Now, every user who logs in to the Screencastify extension will be granted a license on a first come, first serve basis until you have no licenses remaining.

Reassign and revoke licenses

When a user is assigned a license (either manually or automatically), their email address will appear under the Users section in the License Manager

To remove their license, click the trash can next to their email. That will free up a license, which you can then reassign to another user.
