    Like XenForo how we can add users to our licenses to allow access to support areas. Maybe this could be considered for a major release? :)

    Just to note, if it is possible for this, I would only want the extra individuals to be to access support areas (permissions) but not actually download the product.

    Im all for this as right now, I have to do it manually. Would like the license owner to be able to set the name of say his/her "developer" to have access to the support forum(s) for the specific addon/optional extras.

    This has been added to XPM 1.2 :)

    Notice the "License Users" link at the top.

    A new permission allows you to control how many users can be added. It defaults to 0 (as do all permissions):

    When a user is added, they are actually processed in the same way as the license holder is when they purchase; by which I mean a temporary user change is logged which automatically and instantly promotes them to the same user group as specified in the product set up. The expiry date for this change is either the license expiry date or never, depending on the settings of the license. If the license does expire, the user group change will expire automatically at the appropriate time.

    The associated users will only have access to the same user groups as the licensed user. They cannot download the product or access the license page.
