Notes for ArcGIS Trial users

An ArcGIS Trial gives you temporary use of an ArcGIS Online organization, ArcGIS Pro, several ArcGIS Pro extension products, and other ArcGIS apps. Your ArcGIS Online organization can have up to five members. Two of these members can have the Creator user type, which can be assigned ArcGIS Pro licenses.

The ArcGIS Pro licenses are Named User licenses. With an ArcGIS Trial, the license type cannot be changed to Single Use or Concurrent Use. The ArcGIS Pro license level is Advanced. In general, the help topics describing Named User licensing in ArcGIS Online are applicable to an ArcGIS Trial.

For a step-by-step tutorial that covers all aspects of setting up an organization with an ArcGIS Trial, see Set Up an ArcGIS Organization on the Learn ArcGIS site.

Set up your organization

The first step in using the ArcGIS Trial is to set up your ArcGIS Online organization. This process is described in Set up an ArcGIS Online organization.

Download ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS apps

With your ArcGIS Trial, you will be prompted to download ArcGIS Pro and other applications after your ArcGIS Online organization is established but before it is fully configured. However, it is recommended in Set up an ArcGIS Online organization that you finish configuring the organization first. Follow the steps below to download the software after your ArcGIS Online organization is fully configured.


If you download the software at the prompt—that is, before your ArcGIS Online organization is fully configured—you need to return to the organization to add members. To return to your organization, go to the ArcGIS Online sign-in page and sign in with the user name and password you provided when setting up your organization. Finish setting up your organization by adding members.

  1. At the upper right of your ArcGIS Online organization site, click your name and click Trial Downloads.
  2. Under Access software, choose your language and click Download to download ArcGIS Pro and its extensions.

  3. Run the downloaded .exe file and follow the prompts to install ArcGIS Pro on your computer.

    Other members of your organization can download ArcGIS Pro in the same way.
