In this opportunity we will show you how to extend the Remote Desktop’s toolbar with new “Send Key…” actions. Continue reading
There are many reasons why you should choose Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server as the main remote access portal for your company. Today we’d like to tell you about a simple yet powerful feature that can make a difference on your everyday duties: the ability to share your remote desktop session.
Are you working remotely on a computer and need your IT department to help you out? Or maybe you want to show a coworker how to use a program, or collaborate with them in a task? Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server allows you to share the current remote desktop session instantly.
This little known capability is accessible as a web toolbar button. You will find the ‘Share Session’ option in the ‘Actions’ menu. If the web toolbar is collapsed, you can expand it by clicking on the down arrow.
One click to start it, and easy to join in! A pop up will provide you with a link and a password that you can distribute among the people you want to share the session with.
The session is truly shared: those who access the session through this link will be allowed to control the remote desktop too, using the mouse and keyboard. File transfer, however, will be restricted for these users. When the user who sent the invitation disconnects, the shared session ends for everybody. A guest that joined a shared session may nonetheless leave at any time by disconnecting and will not affect the other users.
This remote access functionality comes in handy in several situations. Most of our clients use Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server to telecommute to work. Remote workers cannot call for an IT person to come sit beside them and explain a new program, or fix an error on the screen. Many companies then resort to solutions that require one or both of the parties to install a desktop application so that they can be connected.
When using Thinfinity Remote Desktop, none of this is necessary: both the user and the Help Desk agent can be working in a shared session using only their regular browsers. In the same way, somebody working on a remote machine may release their findings with a colleague, or simply dole out the machine to work on a remote collaboration.
Need a more complex real-time collaboration solution?
Maybe an online presentation tool?
Then you should try Thinfinity Remote Desktop Workstation! It includes a Presentation Mode to raise an online meeting with up to 16 participants.
Stay tuned to learn about other amazing things you can accomplish with our products.
Would you like to integrate a remote desktop within a Web application and access it from any device?
Previously, we let you know about support for an improved authentication method system that will be available in an upcoming Thinfinity VirtualUI release, and surely in Thinfinity Remote Desktop, too, in the close future.
Today, we want to share with you a quick insight about our new powered and extended SDK. This SDK was created to accomplish a better integration between Thinfinity Remote Desktop and external applications.
Have you ever wished you could easily review a remote desktop session? Or perhaps you want to show your remote users how to use —or troubleshoot— an application?
Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server helps you to do all this things —and more— allowing you to record and save rdp sessions.
In a previous post we discussed how to apply general custom settings to Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server. Today, we will learn how to customize the Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server toolbar in depth.
By default, the toolbar displays the wider range of options within reach for the end users. But, as an administrator or integrator, you might want to restrict the end user from accessing some of these options, or all of them. Thinfinity Remote Desktop has a method for applying settings to the toolbar so you can tweak it according to your preferences. These settings will be applied before the connection occurs and will affect all users and all connections in the Thinfinity Remote Desktop server installation.
