How do I connect within Freshservice/Splashtop?
You can easily initiate a remote desktop connection to your users’ computers to provide support, directly from within Freshservice tickets! It takes only a few clicks to start a session. After the support case ends, a record of the remote session is automatically inserted into the ticket. Your users do not need to have any software pre-installed for all this to work.
- Login to your Freshservice account and navigate to your ticket
- Find Apps section and open Splashtop app, then click Create an SOS download link.
- Click on Insert download link into ticket comment to insert the download link to the SOS app.
(You can also just click icon to copy and share using other sources.)
- The technician can check the SOS download link status from the UI, e.g., when the link will expire, and does the user open the link or not. (The technician has to click the refresh button to get the up to date status.)
- End-user clicks on the SOS download link in the ticket and run the SOS program
- Support agent on Freshservice site, clicks on the Connect button to establish a remote connection. Note: Must have the Splashtop Business app installed and logged in.
How do I check session logs?
- Once you click the Close the support case button in the app, the logs will be automatically inserted to the ticket as private comments. There are three types of logs which will be inserted:
- Session logs
- File transfer logs
- Chat transcript download link (7 days TTL)
