License renewal and update ATLAS.ti

23-03-2020

The current license to use ATLAS.ti expires on March 30th. The program warns some time in advance that the license will expire, but can still be used with the old license key for 3 weeks longer. In addition, the agreement has been renewed for another year. Users who have installed the program on their own computer must enter the new license key in this way: start ATLAS.ti, click on Options, then on ATLAS.ti and then on Set license.
The new license key can be found at the beginning of April in the ATLAS.ti FAQ document, which can be downloaded here after logging in. Users who use ATLAS.ti again after a longer period of time will not lose anything but only have to enter the new license key.
An update to the current version of ATLAS.ti 8.4 will be carried out on all university computers at the beginning of April. The project data on H: will of course be retained. We recommend regularly making an (external) backup of projects via: File - Export - Project bundle (file extension .atlproj).
