How do I connect using canopy?
Canopy has partnered with Splashtop to enable Canopy customers to remotely access computers using Splashtop technology and infrastructure. This article will guide you through using Splashtop within the Canopy platform.
Note for Existing Splashtop Users: If you have been a user of the retail Splashtop product, the flow with Canopy is different. You no longer use the Splashtop Business app to connect. All connections (and deployment) are handled through the Canopy console.
How do I provide remote access to my end users?
OS Support: Your Canopy subscription lets you and your fellow support technicians remotely access all Windows-based devices you manage.
Role-Based Access: Splashtop's access within Canopy is governed by role permissions.
- As an administrator, go to the Roles module in Canopy.
- Create a new role or modify an existing one.
- Add the "Devices -> Splashtop -> Launch" permission to the chosen role. Then save the permissions.
- Assign users to this role for them to launch Splashtop sessions from any Windows device.
Note: Launching Splashtop sessions must be done individually—it cannot be bulk executed or scheduled.
