Renaming streamers

Streamer name is the name that shows up in the computer list.

It can be changed from the streamer interface.

You can also rename streamers remotely, right from the web console. This is the easier and faster way if you need to rename multiple computers, remotely.

Admins have the right to rename any computer.

    Yes, Please definitely add this feature and also the ability to have a 'notes' section where you can specify information of the remote computer/streamer (please see below) that can been seen from the Web Console, Desktop client/viewer, and mobile client/viewer.

    Does this actually change the computer name on that machine?  Or is this just an alias?  I need to log into restaurant's POS computers daily and multiple locations all have the same computer name.  I cannot change the names of the computers because the POS relies on it to run!

     

    Is an alias difficult to implement?  That's the only problem I have with Splashtop.

    No Brian - It doesn't change the name (NETBIOS) name on the computer.   This is just a description field for your use so can figure out which box is which.  Enjoy.

    Hi,

     

    Can you not rename it from the desktop remote client? Seems like a basic feature that should be there?

    @Phil,

    You could rename a computer at the streamer on it or remotely on web portal.

    Is there a console command to rename the host computer? eg. is it possible to change the splashtop display name from within our own custom software?
