With many connections going in and out each day, it can be hard to keep track.

Who connected to which device and for how long? The answer lies in Connection Reports.

Have you ever felt the need for a documentation of your TeamViewer connections?

There are good reasons why you might have.

Because for example sometimes support cases might need some clarification in the aftermath.

Which users connected to which devices and how long did the connection last?

You told us you’d like an easy way to make your TeamViewer connections traceable for your business work.

So, the TeamViewer 12 Connection Reports is what we came up with, but take a look for yourself!

Watch All Connections in the Management Console

The Device Connection Reports give you all the information you need about connections related to the devices you manage.

You can easily filter the results displayed below by

  • User name
  • Origin ID
  • Target computer
  • And date range

The reports will then show to you the

  • User name
  • Origin ID
  • Target computer
  • Target ID
  • Group
  • Start time and
  • End time of the connection
  • And the total duration

How to Get to the Connection Reports

Report to the Community

I am positive that with the TeamViewer 12 Connection Reports, there won’t be any more open-ended questions about your connections in the future.

But if there are, you can always forward you feedback to TeamViewer in the community.

    There is no other way to check number of maintained devices.
