If you're looking to get started with Evolve, you may first be interested in signing up for a free trial. This allows you to get a sense of the Evolve tool and how it can be useful for content creation.
This article provides step-by-step instructions on how you can sign up for a free trial with Evolve.
Account creation & registration
Navigate to the account creation page via the link below:
Evolve Account - Signup
Enter your company or organization's name. The information you enter will become part of your Evolve URL. As a result, the name can only contain letters. Numbers, spaces, and special characters won’t be included.
You can see what your Evolve URL will be in a preview on the sign-up form directly, as pictured below:
In the remaining fields, enter your email, name and region (open the drop-down list and pick the region closest to your location from the choice of United Kingdom, United States, Brazil or Australia). Double-check your information and click Sign Up:
You will be emailed a registration link. In order to complete your registration, follow the link provided in the email. Enter your email address and create a password. Next, confirm your password and click Register:
You'll then be logged in to your Evolve Account dashboard, where your link to your Evolve site is located at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. Click Launch Evolve and your Evolve site will load in a new tab (if you are launching Evolve for the first time, this may take a couple of minutes).
Note: When accessing your Evolve site for the first time, you will see a pop-up for Evolve's User Data Policy as pictured in the screenshot below. Be sure to read it over to learn more about how your data is stored and used in Evolve.
Add billing information
After account creation and registration, you can add your billing information. In the main Evolve Account Dashboard, click Edit organization on the upper right-hand side of your screen:
Next, click the blue pen icon in the billing info category:
Enter your name, email address, company name, address, and — if applicable — your VAT number. Once you've saved these details, your information will appear in the Billing info section of the Organization page.
As a note, the information you enter for billing will be included in your invoices.
Free trial duration
Your free trial will be available for 21 days, completely free of charge. To see how much of your trial period remains, you can view that information in your Evolve Account dashboard.
Once your trial expires, you can decide between two payment options to continue the subscription. Payment options include monthly or yearly billing by credit card, or yearly by invoice.
To add your payment details, click Edit subscription in the Evolve Account dashboard, select your payment method and enter payment details. Afterward, your account status will be changed to "active."
Add users to your free trial
As an admin, log into your Evolve account. In the upper right-hand corner, click Account > My Account. You will be redirected to your Evolve Dashboard.
There, you can increase the number of trial users. Once that has been completed, head back over to your Evolve site and click Users > Add Users to add users to the trial.
