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.
