As you all know, we recently announced the official release of the Measure Square 2017 desktop edition with some steps for upgrading from previous versions. One of the main features of this new version is the universal access and use of the Measure Square Cloud. In order to be able to access the software and make use of the Cloud services, you will need to sign up for an account with the Cloud. Below are the steps you will need to take to sign up.

  1. On the Cloud website, click on Create Measure Square ID.You will be directed to a registration form. Fill it out completely. NOTE: the Measure Square ID the form asks for is the email address you intend to use to access your account
  2. Once you have filled out the form, you will need to confirm your email before logging in. Be sure to check your Spam folder for the confirmation email, if you don’t see it in your inbox.
  3. Log into the Cloud using the Measure Square ID and password to make sure the email has been confirmed.
  4. Contact the sales team to get your two-month 2017 license added to your account: or
  5. Note: Existing Measure Square users get a 2 month grace period to use the software alongside the previous version. After 2 months, the 2015 license will be shut off in our system. Also, the Measure Square 2017 account functions differently than previous versions of the software, which is why you must set up an account in the Cloud to get started using it.

After you have followed the steps above and have activated your license, continue exploring the software to see the new features available to you.
