Introduction

The Google Chrome Remote Assistance app provides districts a method to utilize the Chrome Remote Desktop tool from within an Incident IQ ticket. When installed, all technology tickets will automatically display the LogMeIn Rescue Remote Assistance widget districts agents just below the Submitted By section. This provides the district with the following benefits:

  • Streamlines the remote request process for both agent and requestor
  • Provides requestors with step-by-step instructions on how to accept a remote assistance request
  • Tracks each step of the remote session through the ticket timeline, including date and time stamps

Opening Remote Connections on Tickets

After installing the Google Chrome Remote Assistance app, agents and admins can request remote sessions with ticket requestors directly on any ticket page. This is done by accessing the Google Chrome Assistance widget located just below the Submitted By section on any ticket.

The agent and requestor will need to coordinate with each other ahead of time to determine the best time for a remote support session. At the appointed time, the agent can request a new remote session simply by clicking on the Request a New Remote Session button.

This will add a note in the ticket timeline, and a ticket update notification should go out letting the requestor know that the ticket has been updated. Please note, this update email should not be used in place of the ticket agent and requestor communicating to identify a time that fits both of their schedules. If needed, the agent may cancel the request from their side at any time.

Once the agent has requested a remote session with the ticket requestor, the requestor will then be able to see the request when directly accessing the ticket while logged into Incident IQ. From here, the requestor can either Accept or Deny the request for remote session.

If the ticket requestor accepts the request, they will be provided a link to open the Chrome Remote support page. From here, the requestor may download and install the Chrome Remote Support software if they have not already done so. Once ready, they will need to generate their Remote Access Code before copying and pasting it into the corresponding field in Incident IQ.

After the requestor has sent over their Access Code, the agent can now open a remote connection simply by clicking on Start Support Session. Please note, the code generated by the requestor only lasts for five minutes after it has been generated.

Once troubleshooting has finished, the working agent or admin can close the session by clicking on Session Complete.
