Storage and Sub-companies

I am only using storage for one of my sub-companies and got a subscription for it at $10/month. But by mistake, I started uploading tons of my media to storage that is under my main company that is on the 30 -day trail with 28 days left.  Do I have to buys a subscription for the Main Company too?  How can I transfer my storage ID from my Main Company to my Sub-Comany's subscription?

Bryan,

A Storage Subscription cannot be moved from one Company to another one, so the best option may be to download all the content from Storage that you have uploaded in your main Company, and then upload it again to the Company you purchased the subscription for.

Or, you could cancel the subscription for the Sub Company, and set it up in your own Company. Or even easier you could set up a subscription for both. Whatever option is easier for you. 

I hope that helps!

Robb,

We have storage for sub companies. Currently, we process the bill for the all of our subcompany storage and charge it back. Very soon, we will need to transfer the responsibility of storage payment to the sub companies that actually use it. Is there a process for that?

Hi there,

The only option in this case would be to cancel the subscription you have for the Sub Company, and for the Sub Company to purchase a subscription. Nothing will happen to the files after you cancel the subscription in the PNO Company.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I suspected that might be the path. What is the content failure risk if they do not renew imeadiately?

Hi there,

Nothing will happen to their Company's files in Storage once they cancel. You can renew safely.

Thanks!

We have only one subscription for our main company. We simply use links from our storage in the content for our sub-companies. You can create presentation in your main company as a template and later install it in your sub-company. You can simply open one browser tab  with editor where you gonna work under your sub-company and another tab with storage where you gonna work under your main company. Upload your files to storage under main company and copy link from there. Then paste the links in the editor under your sub-company. It works well.
