Remote Control

If enabled for Cobrowse, Remote Control provides the ability for the agent to request control of the visitor’s browser interface during the session.

To enable the remote control button in the agent viewer, from Manage Your Account > Settings > While Cobrowsing with a customer, allow > Remote Control.
