How do I group my computers? (Splashtop Business Access only)

Follow

Just log into my.splashtop.com and click on Grouping to get started.

Please note: If you have a Business Access Pro, Solo, or Legacy account, grouping is not the method by which a team Owner or Admin allows Members access to computers. To allow Members access to computers, please see our article on Access Permissions.

Note: Splashtop Business Access only handles computer grouping. To group both users and computers and to assign group-based access permissions, please refer to Splashtop Remote Support.

Create and manage groups

Only the team Owner or Admins on the account are able to to edit grouping.

To do so, log into my.splashtop.com and click on Grouping. You can create and manage your groups there.

The assignment can also be done automatically by setting it as a deployment package option.

Additional organization tools

Computer naming

You can also take advantage of the alphabetical sorting of computers in the computer list (in both the Splashtop web console and in the Splashtop Business client apps), to further organize your lists.

The computer name can be changed on the Status page of the Streamer interface or remotely, from the web console (my.splashtop.com) or from the Business App.

Note that admins have the right to rename any computer.

You can also deploy streamers with the right name in place. When creating the deployment package, you can adjust the naming convention that you want the Streamers to use.

Add a descriptive note

To further identify a computer in the computer list, you can add a descriptive note for each computer.

The note will show up when you hover your mouse over the computer while in the web console.
