Hello! My name is Laurence Cadieux, and I’m a Communication Coordinnator here at Devolutions. My role includes overseeing the content strategy and development of our blog, managing the content and communication for our VIP advocate platform “Devolutions Force,” and working closely with our PR partners around the world. I also handle our off-site content opportunities (magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.). Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I sing in a band, and I enjoy watching my favorite movies again and again. I also love cooking, and during the pandemic, I became a bread expert — I can now bake the most amazing key lime pie on earth (if I do say so myself!). Plus, I recently discovered LEGO and there is no turning back — I’m hooked! I’m always happy to help, and you can reach me directly at

How To Link Two Accounts to One License in Remote Desktop Manager


As of v.2023.2, Remote Desktop Manager users can link two accounts to a single license, eliminating the need for separate licenses.

Some Remote Desktop Manager Users prefer or require two accounts: a regular user account with normal permission for typical day-to-day tasks, and a “super user” account with elevated permission for privileged tasks.

In the past, the only way to permit this was by assigning each account its own license. Yes, we said “in the past,” because now in the latest version, 2023.2, we have eliminated this requirement. Now, only ONE license is needed for each linked pair. Many users have been asking for this, and as we like to say around here: your wish is our command!


Linking two accounts to a single license is a fast, easy process. Here are the steps:

Step 1: In a Small Team or Enterprise data source, log in as an Administrator.

Step 2: From the Ribbon, go to Administration –> Management –> Users.


Step 3: Select either of the users that you wish to pair, and then click Edit User.


Note: There is no primary or secondary account factor, which means it does not matter which of the two accounts you choose in this step.

Step 4: Go to the Linked Account tab.

Step 5: From the dropdown menu, select the other user account that you wish to pair (i.e., the user that you did not choose in Step 3).


Step 6: Click OK to save the changes and close the window, then click Close.

And that’s it! The two accounts are now linked to the same license.

You can easily check which accounts are linked by going to the User and Security Management window (under the Users button), and scrolling until the Linked Account column.

Also, to switch between both linked accounts, we recommend having a corresponding data source using each credential.
