In order to work in the Searchmetrics Suite different resources are required for individual areas. Resources act as an internal software currency. To track a keyword or set up a briefing for example, fees are incurred which can be paid with the help of the respective resources.
The number of individual resources is defined in the contract and can be viewed at any time in the license overview.
What do i need resources for?
Keyword Queries: Are needed for tracking the project keywords.
Projects: Number of available projects in the Search Experience.
Users: Number of available user slots.

Page Credits: Are needed for crawls in the Site Experience.
Brief Credits: Are needed to set up a brief in the Content Experience.

- Reports: Number of available Dashboards.
How many resources do I have per month? When do credits fill up again?
Keyword queries are static and consume themselves through their use. Projects, users, writers, research accesses and reports are available in the main license without limitation.
However, some of the above resources are refilled on a monthly basis. These include page credits, brief credits and API + export credits. So these resources can be used every month again.
You can find an overview of your available resources under Settings > Licenses > Overview.
There you can also see the start date of the license period. That indicates when the credits will be recharged. For example, the license started on 03/05/2019. This means that the credits refill every month on the 05th.
Can I transfer resources?
If you want to transfer resources within a license between different sublicenses, have a look here.
Resources can also be offset against each other. For example, if more keyword queries are needed, other resources can be converted into them using the token system.
If you need more resources, please contact your CSM.
