Enhanced Browser Tab Names for Remote Sessions

  • When troubleshooting multiple Remote Assist sessions at the same time, we have now enhanced the browser tab names to display the Remote Assist session device name.
  • Previously, when multiple Remote Assist sessions were running on different tabs, all the tabs were named Jumpcloud Remote Assist, and the user had to click each tab to identify the device. 
  • With this enhancement, users can quickly identify the tab that is running a Remote Assist session for a particular device.

Enhanced Remote Assist Prerequisites Check on macOS Devices

  • Previously, when macOS users logged in to Remote Assist, the JumpCloud Remote Assist System Access dialog window would display until all necessary permissions were granted for Remote Assist to function correctly (Screen Recording, Accessibility and Full Disk Access).
  • We have now added an option for the user to dismiss the JumpCloud Remote Assist System Access dialog window.  If the user selects the new Do not show me this message again checkbox, they will not see the dialog on their next login, but will receive a system notification to remind them to grant full access to any remaining system settings. 
  • For more information, see Grant Permissions for the Remote Assist Agent on macOS Devices.
