Add Remote Support

Service Desk is only 1 of the 2 modules available to you; GoToAssist also includes Remote Support that you can use in conjunction with Service Desk to create a fully integrated IT management solution. To try them out, you can add a free trial of GoToAssist Remote Support to your Service Desk account. If your account already includes this module, you may need to enable access for your agents to allow them to use the Remote Support module.
