Add the ability to restrict extension access on a per role basis

Andrew Bayura 2 years ago updated by Eric Waggoner 6 months ago 3

Add security permissions so very restricted users or possible clients that may be using Control do not have access to the View extension.

GPS Metadata/Google Maps API Hook/Plugin

Max 2 years ago updated by anonymous 2 years ago 1

Would be cool to have a GPS Location from those presenting. For example, worker out in the field could stream back what he was seeing at a location and the GPS/GoogleMap location would appear on the right side for the viewer.


Pen Tools To draw/highlight areas on operator browser screen

DanMyers 2 years ago updated by anonymous 2 years ago 1

I can see down the road it being beneficial to have drawing tools that the technician can initiate which will draw on the operators phone browser screen.  Much like Control Annotation features

In-browser control (ie without requiring client/app installation).

Mark H 2 months ago 0

It would be useful to have an in-browser control option, one that didn't require an app/client to be installed, for quick access from devices where the app/client is not installed or cannot be installed (for example Tesla's MCU screen).

Connectwise Control View - Port Numbers

tim.butters 1 year ago 0

The Connectwise Control View module is excellent.

However, our corporate network has a restrictive firewall on all boundaries. We are unable to unblock traffic by means of a URL filter, and will use ports and IP addresses instead. View uses a random port range for communication and makes the product unusable in our scenario.

I'd like to request for the View module to utilize a certain port range. That way we can create exceptions within our firewalls.
