Remote Agent - Stealth Install and Stealth Monitoring

We would like the ability to have the option for a stealth install & or remote viewing session should it be required by the client to monitor their employees. We have many requests from company owners to monitor their staff for a number of reasons. Currently when we log in there is a date/time stamp of the last session and the cursor also rapidly flashes/blinks when we're connected in which alerts the user to us being ...more »

Pre-filled data for "Request Assistance" live chat.

Add API Support to Get Online Techs

The start API has support for specifying a tech to connect to, but there is currently no method of grabbing currently online tech's. The workarounds are less than ideal. We can either: 1.

Email notification when Request Assistance is used.

A customer may use the Request Assistance feature when a tech is not currently assigned to the queue. It is important that in these instances, we still get notified when a customer has used this feature. As of now, there is no way to know if a customer had requested assistance unless we have someone signed into the software.

Option on Mac system shell to logon as a user or root

When using MSP Connect to connect to a MacOS system, the System Shell runs as root.


Would like to see an option to either run the system shell as root or to Log on as another user.


this is to be able to run commands that require to run as a specific user like filevault.



sudo fdesetup removerecovery -personal


will not run because root is not a registered user in filevault by default.
