You may have bought additional seats on your license and while trying to add a new staff user account in Kayako Classic, you are encountering the error "Maximum number of staff user accounts reached."
The number of staff user accounts you can create on your Kayako Classic instance depends on the number of seats you have purchased for your subscription or license. Once you have successfully added the additional seats to your account, you should be able to create additional staff user accounts. If it has been at least 24 hours since you purchased the additional seats and the above error still appears, please contact the support team so we can investigate the issue further.
