Your Kindex Plan Update

 

Kindex Archive Plan Update for Collaborators

Thank you for being a Collaborator on Kindex! With your help, Kindex archives grow and become more searchable every day. We recently updated our archive plans and will be retiring our Freemium plan on July 31, 2018. To help with this transition, your plan has automatically updated from Freemium to the new, Kindexer plan. 

A Kindexer plan is a user plan where you may work in others’ archives as a Collaborator or Guest, but does not include a personal archive. The biggest change you’ll notice is that you are automatically directed to the archive in which you are collaborating after you log in. If you are collaborating in multiple archives, you may access them by logging in at kindex.org and clicking the Archives link in the upper right corner of your page. 

To take advantage our new archive plans, you may upgrade to a Cloud (public) or Closet (private) archive at any time by clicking the Archives link and selecting “Get my own archive” from the drop-down list.

To learn more about the new Kindex plans, continue reading below. Please contact us if we can help in any way, and happy Kindexing!

 

 

Important: All “Freemium” Kindex users (free, personal archive limited to 50 records with no collaborative tools), must update to a Kindexer, Cloud, or Closet plan before July 31 2018. Because you are a Collaborator with no records in your personal archive, your Freemium plan was automatically updated to a Kindexer plan. To learn how to add an archive to your plan, see Account Migration FAQ.
