How can we improve Configuration Manager?

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.

    this solves only half of the problem
    - it's not possible to have to select the second or third screen
    - it's not possible to change the selection without restarting the session

    It all seems to be just a quick temporary fix and not something really finalized..

    while maybe 'technically' complete, there's still much room for improvement on this. allowing selection of monitor x and being able to quickly identify which monitor is which (maybe a PiP type display?) without dropping remote connection would make this 'complete' in my mind.

    I'm a little shocked that this is considered completed. Being able to select the 'first' monitor is a great start but the end goal here was to select _any_ single screen. Otherwise the techs are going to have to spend time having the user move stuff around to the first screen. I don't think this once is completed until we have a drop down of screens to select from. Similarly, having to restart the session to make this change is obviously not ideal either and once you get to true multi-monitor support is going to be a real pain.

    It would be beautiful if the 'all screen' mode would have something similar to the 'identify' option in Windows so that the tech could go full screen, figure out what screen they're interested in, and then select it. If you want to go all the way: integrate this all. Default view is full view, user hits a button to identify different screens, and can click on the number overlay to select just that screen.

    "View first monitor only during Configuration Manager remote control session - When connecting to a client with two or more monitors, a remote tools operator can now choose between seeing all monitors and the first monitor only."


    This isn't really what I imagined....but its a step in the right direction. I was hoping for a way to select what monitor you want to see rather then being limited to only the first monitor, or all of them. We have clients with 3 monitors so this won't be very helpful for them.

    wow. can't believe we're almost there. Thank you so much!

    YES finally this has been put to planned!
    Any ideas on how far into the future this could be a reality?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yeah, i can looking for a soloution to this. i guess its back to Damewear :(

    I will not use this program because of lack of features. Copy/Paste doesn't work, monitor issues, keyboard defaults to non-remoted PC when hitting windows key and things of the sort. What a half-baked application

  • chudlet commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yeah what a pain in the butt. "Scale to Fit" pulls all the monitors into an unusable mess otherwise RC can't handle the resolution of the remote and you are having to scroll all over the place on a single screen much less 2 or 3. Almost every other remote control app I have used handles this better. Common MS, please address this sooner rather than later.

    As others have pointed out, earlier this year this was "implemented" and supposed to be in the 1803 update. Well we pushed the update and we were very disappointed when we realized nothing had been changed. I hope this is actually getting worked on this time.

    This has been open for 3 years now! No update no nothing. Such a basic request. We have no users with a single monitor and I have to spend half the time scrolling around when I connect to a users PC for support. Makes me look like a moron asking a user where something is. Fix it already!

    This would be a long missed feature. And since you already have the codebase open, please add some form of logging, last 30 connections or so..

    Please Add multiple monitor remote. That would save us as a company alot of money.
