Brief credits are charged for the creation of a briefing. A briefing costs exactly one Brief Credit. The Brief Credits are contractually fixed and replenished every month. If you have 50 Brief Credits, you can also use 50 Briefings per month.
If an already existing briefing is to be updated, the complete analysis of the "old" topic is refreshed and is thus also calculated with one Brief Credit.
How many Briefing Credits do i have left? When do credits fill up again?
Under Settings > Projects > Overview you can see the Brief Credits that are left.
The start date of the license period indicates when the credits will be recharged. In the example, the license started on 03/05/2019. This means that the credits refill every month on the 05th.
The remaining Briefing Credits, as well as the creation date of the license can also be viewed directly in the Content Experience. Simply click on the "Brief Credits" button in the upper menu bar.
