« Go Back


SummaryWhat is RingCentral Meetings Remote Support and how does it work?

Hosts can click Support to control other's computer, application control or request computer restart. This can be ideal for a support agent to remotely control another Participant’s computer. This will prevent multiple participants from sharing their screen simultaneously when enabled.  

NOTE: This feature is OFF by default. If you want to use this feature, make sure that this feature is enabled in your online account. To enable Remote Support, go to Settings > Meetings > click Edit on the In Meeting (Advanced) section and enable Remote Support. You can only select either Breakout Rooms or Remote Support at a time for a meeting. Hosts may not be able to request Participants using the RingCentral Mobile App for remote control.
