  1. Use SCCM to remote control multiple monitors

    When using SCCM to remote control multiple monitors; allow the ability to select only one monitor to be remote controlled; vs. the option now of only stretching.

      • Remote control default connection via FQDN not NETBIOS. This would allow remote control across multiple trusted domain easily using the cons

        When trying to use Remote Control from start->remote control in the console, it is not possible to connect to machine that is not part the same domain as the server as netbios is used. If the FQDN is called than it would be possible to connect to devices in trusted domains.

        • Internet Based Remote Control

          Internet based remote control with options such as file transfer and reboot. This could be accomplished using a reverse connection from a client to a new site role hosted in the DMZ.

          • Remote control - Allow for two simultaneous RC sessions to the same target device (shared viewing capability)

            For some troubleshooting scenarios in a multi-tier service desk organization we need to have 3rd tier staff connected to a end user's PC simultaneously to an already ongoing 1st staff remote session.

            • Allow Remote Control on locked user sessions without prompting the user for permission

              This happens on Windows 10 if a workstation is locked - remote control acts as if the locked user has an active console session and prompts for permission to take control in that locked session.

              The Currently Logged On User column in 1806 is now extremely helpful for detecting these cases to force a reboot but I feel like I should be able to jump into a locked workstation if someone doesn't log out of their device.

              We particularly run into this in Higher-Ed with Classrooms/Labs where students/professors won't log off after their class (or hit the power button onā€¦

              • Allow client settings for user accounts for remote tools

                We need to push user/group based remote control permissions. It would be great to have custom settings for different groups atleast Prompt user for Remote Control Permission.

                In our environment we need to implement prompt for permissions based on job profiles.

                • Remote Control Disconnects When Adding a Printer in Windows 10

                  When adding a printer on a Windows 10 client through remote control, the session gets disconnected.

                  It looks like others have encountered the same issue:

                        • Remote Control Viewer add Remote Actions for Lock, Reboot and Send Key Combinations

                          The Remote Control Viewer is missing features which are the norm in many other Remote Control solutions.
                          Among them:
                          - Button to Remote Lock the screen of the computer when the supporter is done with work.
                          - Button for a Remote Reboot and wait for the machine.
                          - Ability to configure that Key Combinations like Windows + R are sent to the remote computer instead of being executed locally.

                          • Trim the Address Field in CM Remote Control

                            Please apply a simple string trim to the address field. A lot of copy and pasting goes on leading to an extra space that the tool take literally and refuses to connect. A small, simple thing, but something that can be frustrating.

                            • Remote control via notification agent

                              It could be great if we allow triggering the client via the notification agent to start remote controlling,
                              So an admin could still start a remote control task from the console but the client will actually create the session.

                              this way we could:
                              1. eliminate the need for port 2701 to the clients
                              2. eliminate the need for client DNS name resolving
                              3. potentially, allow remote control via Cloud Management Gateway for internet clients

                                • allow shortcut keys without being forced to use full screen mode

                                  Until now it is only possible to use shortcut keys like Windows key and R for Run, if you're using full screen mode in Remote Control Viewer. This is really annoying sometimes.

                                  In 3rd party apps like Teamviewer and Netop it is possible to use shortcut keys without using full screen mode.

                                  Thanks in advance!

                                    • For remote control why does my left handed mouse not translte like other remote control tools?

                                      I am left handed, yet when I remote control people the mouse translation is lost. I cannot find a setting nor can our SCCM admin. Why is this basic feature not availble when even the horrible Novell ZenWorks remote control can do this. Thisis a huge fail on MS part

                                      • Fix keyboard language at the Remote tool

                                        When we connect to computers using the CM Remote Tool (SCCM 1710) and the our keyboard language differs from the user's language (we use EN by default, users - RUS) - language bar is desappeared, keyboard can not be swithched to ENG. If we and user has same keyboard language - all right.

                                        • chat window interface

                                          It would be helpful if we have a chat interface when using the Remote Control.
