Features Overview

GoToAssist has several tools to help you support your customers. These tools can be accessed via the HelpAlert Viewer window or Chat box toolbars.

Shared Screens – HelpAlert allows you to view your customer's screen in real time using the representative Viewer window.
Annotation Tools – Annotation tools allow you and the customer to create and erase illustrations on the shared screen. This ability can assist you in focusing the customer's attention on a particular area when guiding customers during support sessions.

Scripted Messages and URLs – If desired, managers can create pre-scripted messages and quick-link URLs that you can then send to customers during support sessions (such as frequently used responses or questions). This can help you more quickly and easily assist customers by avoiding having to type out frequently used phrases and website URLs.
