    • Most recently used list of connections

      A Most Recently Used list of connections would be a timesaver!

      Or is there other software that can connect to sccm clients?

      • Remote control to internet based machine without installing client

        Remote control to customer machines who do not need client installed on their machines. A subset of files needed to establish a session can be copied to a user machine and be deleted after the session is complete.

        • Ability to track and remote lock laptops without MSA just Microsoft 365 Business account

          I've just had a client leave his Surface Pro 6 on an aircraft. No MSA set up, just a corporate Microsoft 365 Business account with Azure AD P2.
          I was surprised to discover I could not remote lock the device (like I can any mobile), just wipe it. Please add the ability to use "Find my device" and "Remote lock" without needing a MSA. You removed the ability to sync settings on domain joined machines using a MSA, why insist on having one for remote tracking and security!?

          • Allow Remote Control connection if logged in account match user that tries to remote

            If the user that tries to remote control matches the current logged in user then do not prompt for approval.
            This is a common case where a IT support user login to a remote client in order to do support work with higher permission. If there is a connection drop the IT support user cannot remote back to device if the user is not there and the device will be left with a high permission account logged in.

            • 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 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.

                        • 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 on…

                          • 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!

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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

                                        • chat window interface

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