What is a trial at Lookback?
Trialing Lookback means you can conduct 5 sessions within 60 days. If you've exhausted your 5 sessions before the 60 days are over, you will still have access to review and edit recordings until your 60 day period concludes. If 60 days go by without you using up your 5 sessions, your trial is over. You can check your session status at the bottom left corner of your Lookback dashboard:
How do I sign up for a Free Trial?
What happens when the trial runs out?
After 60 days, your trial becomes inactive. If you would like to continue to use Lookback or access sessions completed during the trial, you will need to sign up for a paid plan (lookback.io/pricing)
Do team members in a Lookback organization have different roles or capabilities?
All team members in a Lookback organization can create projects, rounds or be either a moderator or an observer in LiveShare sessions, but only the owner of the org can manage anything billing or settings that impacts the whole Lookback organization. There are no other distinctions between team members, Lookback's ambition is to make the platform as flexible and collaborative an experience as possible.
What do participants (testers) need to join a Lookback session?

Can I send the same link to each participant?
Yes! The participant link is associated with the round, so you send the same link to all participants that are carrying out a determined test (we call it a Round). This link creates a unique interview room for each participant who clicks the link and go through the set-up flow with the moderator. You'll never have to worry about one participant interfering with another. Each session generated with this link will sort under the project and round it the participant link belongs to, by the participant's name as well as the time/date of the session. More info on inviting participants here.
Are there any limitations to what you can do on a trial compared to a paid subscription?
Yes – you can't download/export any session recordings or notes from the dashboard. Apart from that the trial is a full-fledged experience of what you get when on a paid subscription plan! When you upgrade a Trial org to a paid subscription though, the sessions conducted during trial will carry over and be downloadable on the paid subscription.
