This article applies to TeamViewer users with a Premium- or Corporate license.
TeamViewer offers several features to improve managing your support team within TeamViewer.
TeamViewer Management Console
The most basic feature for working efficiently in a team is the TeamViewer Management Console. It is basically the main hub for managing your TeamViewer Support Team. Please find below some of the most popular features.
With the TeamViewer Management Console, you can manage multiple TeamViewer accounts at a company level using a company profile. A company profile offers many options like managing users or allocate their permissions.
No matter if you want to share contacts with a user, assign permissions, or log TeamViewer sessions of the user for billing purposes – the company profile can do all that in a centrally managed fashion.
📌Note: Using a company profile requires a TeamViewer Premium or Corporate license.
To create your own TeamViewer company profile, log in to the Management Console and click User Management (1) on the left. Once there, enter the desired Company Profile name in the appropriate box (2).
A company profile can also be used to manage the access to your TeamViewer license on a group level and control the access to your available TeamViewer channels. As an administrator, you have control of who is using your license at any time.
With channel grouping, you can define, which of your team members should be able to use a defined number of tasks. For example, assign one channel out of all your available channels to your boss so he always can establish a licensed TeamViewer connection if urgent without running into channel limitations.
To get your hands on channel groups, log in to the Management Console and click your profile in the upper right corner. In the next window, go to General, and click the drop-down to the right of the desired license and select Create Channel Group.
Take advantage of the service queue to organize customer support within and with your team. The service queue is best described as a ticket system for support requests.
Your customer’s support requests are collected in the TeamViewer Management Console and displayed as service cases. Each time one of your customer’s needs help via TeamViewer, a new service case is created within your service queue. Your customers can for example create a service case by clicking a TeamViewer SOS button on their desktop.
The individual service cases can be assigned to supporters within your team. Like an email in a ticket system, service cases can have different statuses from New to Closed or Expired.
To solve a service case, it is possible to establish a remote session to the customer directly out of the TeamViewer Management Console.
To get a first hands-on on the service queue, log in to the TeamViewer Management Console and navigate to Home > Service Queue
The TeamViewer Management Console can also be used to configure TeamViewer settings for all your devices.
You can apply settings to every device that is managed by your account by creating a setting policy. The policy will include setting for the client like access controls, reporting, password settings and many more.
This lets you centrally manage the settings of every TeamViewer installation within your company and enables highest security standards rolled out centrally.
To create your settings policy, log in to the TeamViewer Management Console and navigate to Home > Design & Deploy (1) > Policies (2) > Add policy (3) .
Setting policies can either be assigned to a group of devices a single devices.
For more Information about TeamViewer Policies, see the article How to add a new policy, or the TeamViewer Manual – Management Console.
Computers & Contacts – Sharing groups
With the Computers & Contacts list you have the option to share groups or computers and contacts with individual contacts from your list.
This way, entire groups can be made available to your team quickly and easily. You can assign different permissions (read, read/write, full access) to users you share groups with.

Sharing always inherits settings you already defined for computers or contacts within the group. Once a group is set up with computers and, for example, access settings are defined and the device is assigned to you, your team can start working immediately as soon as the group is shared with them.
To share a group, log in to the TeamViewer Management Console and navigate to the desired group under Groups. Click the pencil to the left of the group, and then select share.
