Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I try Mavenlink for free?

    Yes! Any Mavenlink plan can be tried free for ten days. To test drive our most basic plan, simply create an account to get started. If you’re interested in our Professional or Premier plans, you can get a free trial by scheduling a demo. We’ve found that getting a personalized tour of the product helps you make the most of your trial and is the quickest way to decide whether Mavenlink is right for your organization.

  • Can I invite clients into my project? What does that cost?

    Mavenlink wants to make it easy to deliver work to your clients, so we let you invite an unlimited number of Clients into your project workspaces for free. When invited to a project, Clients can create a free account and will not count as a user for billing purposes. Mavenlink is designed with client relationships in mind. Clients are clearly identified in each Mavenlink project workspace, and can’t access certain features (e.g. time tracking) and internal information (e.g. cost rates).

  • What happens when my free trial ends?

    During your free trial, you will have access to the full functionality of the Mavenlink plan you selected. When the trial ends, Mavenlink preserves your data in case you decide to subscribe. If you need more time to evaluate the software or would like to try a more advanced plan, please request access and we’ll be in touch.

  • How does Mavenlink handle contractors and freelancers?

    Mavenlink is designed to work for your entire delivery team, including contractors and freelancers. Any existing user on a paid Mavenlink account can be invited to participate in your projects at no additional cost. When you invite new users to help deliver a project, you can opt to add them to your account and pay for that seat. This lets you manage their account-wide permissions. Alternately, the new user can create their own Mavenlink account. This might be preferable if they plan to use Mavenlink for their own projects as well.

  • Do I have to pay extra for users with different permission levels?

    No! To simplify pricing and keep costs predictable, Mavenlink offers consistent pricing across permission levels. You can set the appropriate permissions for every user (at both the account and project level) without worrying about how this affects your total cost.

  • What is Mavenlink Insights?

    Mavenlink Insights is a business intelligence solution for project delivery teams. It helps project teams answer questions about their business so they can get the results they want. Insights features are only available to Premier customers who have purchased the optional Mavenlink Insights features (expert-built reports, ad-hoc custom reporting, trend analysis & forecasting, data visualization, and advanced business intelligence capabilities).

  • Why is Mavenlink Insights optional?

    We understand that some businesses want to start using Mavenlink’s business intelligence capabilities right away, while others aren’t quite ready to take advantage of the extra functionality. By offering Insights as an optional layer, Mavenlink Premier admins can choose if and when they want to add it to their plan.

  • Do you offer discounts or special rates for non-profits?

    Yes, Mavenlink supports charitable organizations by offering a 50% discount on list price to non-profits with a 501(c)(3) designation. Please fill out this form to request access.

  • I have other questions! Who can help me?
