What are ThingLink views?
Views are counted when a direct link or webpage with ThingLinks embedded (e.g. website or LMS page) is loaded and each load counts as one view.
We limit the number of views for each user with a view quota calculated based on the total views during the last 12 months. We do not increase the view count when you view your own content (as long as you are logged in).
How many views does my account have?
There are no viewing limits during the free teacher 30 day trial. The Professional teacher license provides you with 10,000 ThingLink views. School and Academic licenses include unlimited views.
You can find a full comparison of educational plans here.
Your current number of views and the view limit is displayed in your Profile settings -> Billing tab:
How can I get more views?

Why is there a limit to the number of views?
ThingLink incurs hosting costs each time your content is loaded. The limitation also helps us identify accounts that abuse our educational offering for marketing and communications purposes.
What happens if I run out of views?
When your account reaches and exceeds view limits, all embedded ThingLinks will be displayed with a banner that will redirect the viewer to consume the content on ThingLink. The images will stay interactive but available only on ThingLink.
Here's an example:
In addition, upon logging in you'll see a banner notifying you that you've run out of views.
