How to unlock full Prospect features

The first time you access Prospect you may see that some of the features are hidden or locked. Read the following notes to learn how to unlock them.

Switch from personal to company account. If you are already a member (either admin or regular user) of a company account subscribed to any of the Prospect paid plans (Basic or Professional) you need to make sure that your access is switched from your personal account (the one that is created the first time you sign up) to your company account (the one that is actually linked to your Prospect paid plan).
To switch to your company account, please follow these instructions:

  • Sign-in from
  • Click on the top right corner to see the drop drown menu
  • From the options that appear below, please select the account related to your Prospect paid plan



Unhide parameters from the map view. After you have switched to your company account by following the previous instructions, some of the parameters available under your paid plan may be hidden in your Prospect map view. You can control this from the map settings accessible at the button below your username. From there, you can check/uncheck the parameters you want to see under the map data section.


Set a configuration for your PV project. When opening a new project after doing the site selection from the map view, some of the reports provided by Prospect are shown as locked. If you are already signed in under a company account with a paid subscription, you just need to select a PV configuration to see all these values unlocked.


If after following the previous steps, you are still unable to use Prospect paid features, it is possible that your subscription is not activated yet.

How long does it take to activate the subscription?

After purchasing a subscription to Prospect, the access to the app for your company account will be activated within 24 hours. Then, the admin user of your company account will receive a notification email confirming the activation. From that moment, you can start using all the features covered by your Prospect plan. Please make sure about this:

If you are using a free trial, the access to Prospect features will instantly apply to the project site of your choice after you confirm that you want to use your assigned credit.
