Can I control 3 desktops, simultaneously?

Hopefully, someone can help me.

I am having to work from home but have three PC's in my workplace I would like to access and perform my work on. Is it possible to simultaneously link into all three of them and switch between each one as and when required?

Thanks in anticipation.

Seb

Re: Can I control 3 desktops, simultaneously?

Hi @SebastianD 

That should be possible - yes!

Just make a connection to your first device, open again your local TeamViewer and start another session to your second device and repeat it for the third device as well.

My personal recommendation would be to enable the setting Open new connection in tabs via Extras --> Options --> Remote control first. With this, you can easily switch between the different sessions like you switch tabs in your browser.

I hope this helps,

Esther

Sure - easy done.

Only available online means that you need to buy this license via our webshop. Our Sales team which is available via phone and ticket can not sell this license, but our other packages (Business, Premium, Corporate, and Tensor). 

And also let me take the opportunity to send you a link to our FAQ for the Remote Access plan

I hope this info helps you!

Re: Can I control 3 desktops, simultaneously?

Hello,

You kindly answered my query but I just realised that such prompts another question.

Can I perform that function on any of the Teamviewer packages [Single User] - [Multi-User] - [For Teams] or is a specific package required?

I ask because I am only a small business with three PC's in my office, which I would like to be able to access from home, so would find the more expensive offerings somewhat beyond my current financial means.

Thank you.

Hi Seb,

Basically - yes.

All licenses would allow you this in general. But from what you wrote, I think the Remote Access Plan might be a great starting point for you.

Best, Esther

Re: Can I control 3 desktops, simultaneously?

Thank you, again.

I note there is a caveat existing with the "Remote Access" license, being "only available online".

I have searched to discover what that actually means, without success.

Can you help me out again with this, please?

Sorry to be a nuisance.

Seb
