A single license entitles the holder to use the osTicket Awesome themed-files within one live osTicket installation and one testing installation, for use within one organization.
This is more than adequate in most situations, unless your organization uses more than one Support Ticket System.
So technically osTicket Awesome is a giant modification of osTicket.
You need to install it similarly to how you installed osTicket in the first place. We provide complete instructions to help you through every step of the process.
But, if you choose to do so, you can always go back to the regular osTicket.
And you will still use your current database. All of your ticket data, customer information, agents, etc. will remain exactly the same whether you are using osTicket Awesome or not.
And if, at some point, you want to go back to using vanilla osTicket, there is absolutely no risk whatsoever.
If you have your own modifications to the osTicket code, here is a tip to help you identify and copy your code over to a new installation or upgrade.
As osTicket Awesome is a digital product, you cannot “return” it like you would a physical item.
If you are thinking about buying osTicket Awesome, please try our Client and Staff demos on your desktop and mobile devices. 98% of all osTicket functionality can be tested in the demos.
After purchasing and installing osTicket Awesome, most customers do not require any assistance. But if you do run into trouble, you can contact the developer directly or, preferably, ask for help in the forums.
Keep in mind, however, that if you upgrade osTicket and/or osTicket Awesome you will lose your customizations.
Therefore, you should consider the trade-off. You may choose to have your osTicket Awesome installation customized knowing that you will avoid upgrading osTicket / osTicket Awesome for a few years (until a really compelling new feature becomes available).
