Manage Your Devices

You can oversee, maintain, and access all of your unattended support computers from your Devices page.

When you set up unattended support on a computer, it is automatically listed as a device in the device group that you specified during the initial setup. You can view all devices, or filter your view by device groups. From the list of devices, you can connect to a device, search devices, view device information, move it to another device group, and much more.

You can also select your user name in the top navigation and use the account drop-down menu to access the My Account page, Manage People & Devices (i.e., if your account has admin access), and Sign Out.

Note: Access to the Unattended Support feature (including those described here) is dependent upon your user group settings or your individual user settings, which are set by your administrator.

View devices and device info

  • On the Devices page, use the Device Group menu in the left navigation to select your desired device group, or click All Devices to display all devices from all of your assigned device groups. Additionally, you can use the "Search" field to filter devices by any detail displayed in the device's information.
    Note: A minimum of 2 characters can be used in the "Search" field.

  • To view an individual device's information, click the Device icon next to the name of the device, which will display the following information:
    • Device group - The group in which the device is currently assigned.
    • Operating system - The version of Windows or Mac on the unattended computer.

    • DNS name - Naming system used for translating domain names into IP addresses (i.e., Domain Name System).
    • IP address - A unique numerical address used to identify a device that communicates with other devices within an IP network (i.e., Internet Protocol address).
    • MAC address - A unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communication (i.e., Media Access Control address).
