How do I connect within Freshdesk/Splashtop?
You can easily initiate a remote desktop connection to your users’ computers to provide support, directly from within Freshdesk 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.

- 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 technical 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
