Add ability to set tech's picture in Take Control on N-Central

When a Take Control chat window is popped out of the corner there is a place for the technician's picture. Currently this picture is not able to be set with Take Control through N-Central.

 

It'd be nice if the picture was able to be set, or if the blank spot was not there in the N-Central version of Take Control so it does not appear to clients that we have lazily not configured it.

Take Control Last Heartbeat

When Take Control has not checked in and you hover over the remote control button, it displays:

 

A Take Control heartbeat has not been received from this device. The latest heartbeat expired ###### seconds ago.

 

It's fairly useless when that number is anything considerably high. It'd be nice if it automatically switched it to minutes or hours after certain time thresholds are passed.

Change TS Session - Restrict, Disable or Prompt when connected

Take Control > View > Change TS Sesssion, is an incredibly handy tool but can also be very dangerous seeing as it doesn't prompt for a password or inform the user account you are transferring into, that you are connecting. Therefore I'm proposing that - The same "Madeline is in session" prompt be available. - Same "Permission to grant access" prompt be available. - Permissions to this be made available through Roles. ...more »

Control the order that Service Templates get re-applied

The N-Central server that I manage is set to re-apply templates nightly. I'd like the ability to prioritize or order which templates would run before others. I.E. I have a SQL Template that adds data for each SQL DB and then I have another template that removes generic SQL DB monitoring for databases like AD Sync or Veeam. I would like the template that removes the data AFTER the template that adds the data. Customizing ...more »

portal remote control settings in mass

I need to configure the remote web page for some devices and not all, to a specific port, if such port is open based on SNMP/WMI.

I don't want to do this globally, just for specific devices with custom ports, like router management portals or know ports that are not the conventional HTTP or HTTPS, just a specify set of network devices, to be configure in masses/bulk edit for the remote control settings.

Allow access to statistics / data for Take Control via API

It would be great addition if it was possible to receive the data of the Take Control report via API call.

To combine / integrate the session info and length to a third party ticket system and provide an easy logging for the user and customer this way.

 

Thank you for you consideration.

Option for users to give support permission an x amount of time

The support engineer then needs to restart the device, but needs to call the user for permission again. This means that or the support engineer need to wait until the user is done with his meeting or call them ...more »

Ability to set Defaults for (non default) Remote Control types

On Remote Control types that are not setup as the default type for a device class we still need to be able to setup default settings. How we would like this to work 1. we would be able to setup remote control defaults regardless of device type 2. we would be able to set this at SO level, but also make custom changes at the customer or site level (similar to other categories within the Administration\Defaults menu) 3. ...more »
