Can a school's DocsPlus Universal subscription be used at home?

You want your teachers / students to access your DocsPlus Universal subscription on their home devices.


Note: This relates to subscription customers. If you purchased DocsPlus before Nov 2020, please see the related article below.

If your school has a OneSchool Flexi-License subscription, teachers / students can also access DocsPlus on their personal home devices.

DocsPlus for Windows / Mac 

  1. Visit
  2. Enter your serial number, complete the I’m not a robot check and click Start.
  3. Register your serial number if prompted. This protects your serial number against being lost in future.
  4. On the License Management page, click Claim licenses for home use.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    The website will generate a single PDF file containing your chosen number of Home User license letters.
    Each letter contains a unique 1 Computer serial number and the installer download link.

  6. Print the PDF file.
  7. Give a license letter to each teacher / student that needs one.

Note: each of these Home User licenses will expire 12 months after first use. If the user requires DocsPlus beyond that, you can provide them with a new letter.

DocsPlus for iPad

Please contact Support to request the number of Home User licenses required for iPads.

If possible, please include your subscription codes for swifter processing.

We will provide you with a secondary Organization ID and Enrollment password for your home users.


Home users can sign into their personal Chromebooks using their school Google account. They will have access to all their apps and files.

On first use, it may take a few minutes for apps to appear in the Chromebook's launcher (depending on Internet speed).
