Important Notes when Signing Up

Automatic free trial
If you haven't already set up a trial account before purchasing a subscription, you will automatically receive the 21 day free trial at the start of your subscription.

Display name
When setting up any account you have to enter a Display Name. Your Display Name will be viewable on any Published documents, so you may not wish to use your full name.

Group ID
When setting up a group account you need to enter a Group ID. The Group ID will be part of the log-in for all users, and also the account's web address, so this should be short and memorable.
