How to Use the Remote Device Dashboard to Solve Support Cases Faster

Community Manager


IT support work often requires the ability to dig deeper into device information to get a clear picture of what is happening on the device. It’s often a long and repetitive process. But, with TeamViewer 12 – that’s no longer the case!

Faster support resolution benefits everyone. You get more things done, and your customers can get on with their day quicker.

So, instead of needing to go through the lengthy process of information gathering on the remote device, wouldn’t it be better to quickly view and act on this information from one screen?

Yep – we think so too.

Which is why the Remote Device Dashboard is part of TeamViewer 12.

Spotting Problems at a Glance

With the Remote Device Dashboard, you have access to the device’s most important information in one spot.

You can find information about:

  • Processes - See the number of processes and open the task manager with one click.
  • Performance - This covers the CPU performance and the RAM and drive capacity. Again, you can quickly access the task manager and additionally, there’s the option to perform a disc cleanup.
  • Security - Here, you find info on the status of antivirus software and firewall.
  • Session - The connected device and the duration of your connection is displayed.
  • Device - Find out the manufacturer, model, operating system and device name.
  • System environment - Learn about the network adapter name, IP address and subnet mask. You can also directly open the network and sharing center from here.

In other words, it saves you time and effort you can now invest on fixing the problem your customer needs solved.

With TV 12, what are the best practices for remotely supporting iPads? PC(OS X or Windows) to iPads, iPad to iPad, and etc? I've seen the screen capture feature using iPad to iPad. If any, what other tools are available?

Thanks in advance for your help!
