The Microsoft Quick Assist Remote Assistance app provides districts a method to utilize the Quick Assist software from within an Incident IQ ticket. When installed, all technology tickets will automatically display the LogMeIn Rescue Remote Assistance widget districts agents just below the Submitted By section. This provides the district with the following benefits:
- Streamlines the remote request process for both agent and requestor
- Provides requestors with step-by-step instructions on how to accept a remote assistance request
- Tracks each step of the remote session through the ticket timeline, including date and time stamps
Installing the App
To install the Microsoft Quick Assist app, begin by clicking on Incident IQ Apps > Browse on the left navigation bar.
Underneath the Remote Assistance section, click on the Microsoft Quick Assist app. From here, simply select Install and follow the steps to complete the installation.
Opening Remote Connections on Tickets
After installing the app, agents and admins can request remote sessions with ticket requestors directly on any ticket page. This is done by accessing the Microsoft Quick Assist widget located just below the Submitted By section on any ticket.
The agent and requestor will need to coordinate with each other ahead of time to determine the best time for a remote support session. At the appointed time, the agent can request a new remote session simply by clicking on the Request a New Remote Session button.
This will add a note in the ticket timeline, and a ticket update notification should go out letting the requestor know that the ticket has been updated. Please note, this update email should not be used in place of the ticket agent and requestor communicating to identify a time that fits both of their schedules. If needed, the agent may cancel the request from their side at any time.
Once the agent has requested a remote session with the ticket requestor, the requestor will then be able to see the request when directly accessing the ticket while logged into Incident IQ. From here, the requestor can either Accept or Deny the request for remote session.
At this point, the requestor will need to wait on the agent to provide a Quick Assist code to access the remote session.
The agent will now need to generate and input the Quick Assist Code into the corresponding field, followed by clicking on Send Session Code to send the code over to the requestor.
With the Quick Assist code generated, the requestor can now be copy the provided code. In Quick Assist app, the requestor will then need to paste the code into the field marked Code from assistant, followed by clicking on Share screen to finalize opening the remote session with the agent.
Once troubleshooting has finished, the working agent or requestor can close the session by clicking on Session Complete.
