I purchased Snagit 2018 and used the key to active it but I noticed with previous versions of Snagit that I could my other keys to active multiple copies of Snagit on different computers. The reason I'm asking is because I also use Snagit at work and our IT person hasn't gotten around to installing the newest version yet on my computer (I don't have admin rights) and I'm wondering if I need to purchase another license for my work computer. Also I thought you could install more than one copy (2 installs with 1 purchase) with a single purchase, at least in the past I've been able to do that.

Let the techsmith people tell you but I have seen it here before that you can install it on more than one devices as long as you are only using one install at a time. As for previous versions ... Your 2018 will unlock previous versions but if you  unlock v 12 with your v 12 ket and v11 with your v11 key I don't see a problem although the company may not like it, you are using purchased keys

Hi,
Here's a link to the End User Licence Agreement:
https://www.techsmith.com/snagit-eula.html
It states:

Provided that you comply with all the terms and conditions of this EULA and when required by the Software, you present a valid, authorized, and activated Software key, you may also install and run a second copy of the Software on a second licensed device for use only by you for your internal business or individual use only, whichever is applicable. Only one person at a time may use the Software on each licensed device and the two licensed devices may not be used simultaneously by that one person. 

In summary you can install on 2 devices but they must not be used at the same time.
I hope this helps,
Jayne @Raiveon

The licensing FAQ may also be a helpful reference.

The simplest way to do install Snagit on two machines is to register your license key at https://myaccount.techsmith.com/MyProducts/Software. Then when you install Snagit 2018 on each machine you can just log into your account and it will pull down your license.

May you clarify me if the installation on two machines can be with different OS, it is one for Windows computer and another for Mac? Or the license is base on one unique OS for the download?
I hope you may help to clarify this, and thank you in advance!
Cheers,
Maria

Yep: can be 2 Windows machines, 2 Mac machines, or 1 of each.
