Navigator: Closing a Session

The following changes to session statuses have been made:

  • As of this release, users will be unable to reopen a Closed session regardless of role.
  • Setting the Status of a session to Closed immediately disconnects any connected devices, and Paths in progress will be aborted.
  • Attempting to close a session with connections or paths in progress displays a warning that the agent will have to acknowledge before proceeding. This warning includes a Do not show again checkbox.
  • Closed sessions have limited functionality for all users. The Activity tab of the Control Panel will still be available, as will the Switch Path button (for reviewing various Path Summaries); however, all Agent (i.e. service delivery) functionality has been disabled.
  • Viewing a Closed session displays the Path Summary, which lists each step of that Path as follows:
    • Steps that the agent marked as Complete appear in the Complete column.
    • Steps that the agent marked as Not Applicable appear in the Not Applicable column.
    • Incomplete Steps (Steps that were not marked as either Complete or Not Applicable) appear in the Incomplete column.
    • The Step that the agent was on when s/he closed the session appears at the top left of the Path Summary.

  • To edit an existing URL, click the Edit icon (lightning bolt) for the URL you want to modify.
  • To delete an existing URL, click the Delete icon (trash can) for the URL you want to delete.

Please refer to the User/Admin Guide for more information about this functionality.

The URL field in the Session screen now includes a pull-down menu that lets the agent select the appropriate URL to push to the customer's device.

Agents who are connected to a Windows or Macintosh computer can point to locations on the customer's screen (laser pointer) and also draw on the customer's screen. To access functions, click the Annotate button (pencil) in the Remote View section of the Session screen to open the Annotation menu.

  • Selecting Laser Pointer displays a red dot on the customer's screen that you can move around to point out various items.

  • Selecting Whiteboard allows you to draw on the customer's screen by clicking and holding the left mouse button. Releasing the button stops drawing.

  • Clicking Clear Drawing in the Annotate menu clears the current drawing and allows you to continue using the Whiteboard function.
