Mac Client enhancements

Timrycroft 4 years ago updated by Derm 4 years ago 5

We run a business which is 99% Mac and as such our engineers all run on Apple devices. The Mac App appears to be a distant attempt of what you get on the windows version. It would be nice to have it skinned and enhanced so it matches the same feature set as well as look and feel.

Hi Tim,


6.1 will introduce some great Mac features to help decrease the parity between the two clients. We're looking at doing a refresh of the UI in Q1 or Q2 of next year. If you're in our focus group, we'll be sending out a sneak peek later this week of the new 6.1 features. I'm closing this general issue as we have specific issues to address each enhancement. So declined, but not declined :-)

Hi Tim,


We are currently looking into revamping the Mac UI and have some early designs. We want to speak to Mac users to get some feedback. Would you be interested in partcipating?

Hello,


I would absolutely be interested in reviewing these changes please and feeding back.


Thanks

I work on a 13" MacBook Pro primarily and the menu bar is a bit excessive. I would like to see some of the menu items combined to make less menu names across the menu bar so I can access my Password manager or other items that run in the menu bar. You can see from the screen shot that there is basically no room for any icons.

In the Finder app the menu bar is shorter and I can see the menu bar icons I need.


This makes me switch from ScreenConnect Client to another app so I can get to my icons and back. Using the keyboard shortcut CMD-Tab also triggers the start menu on remote windows clients. Perhaps you could also not send the CMD to the remote client when used with another combination like CMD-Tab.
