Starting a GlanceGuest session

Starting the Session

Sessions start in the following ways:


  1. The agent directs the visitor to Screen Share via a link (e.g., https://www.glance.net/visitor/start/?groupid=12345)

    Note: 12345 in the above URL must be replaced with the desired group ID

  2. The visitor visits the link to start the download of GlanceGuest.

  3. The visitor unzips GlanceGuest download

  4. The visitor clicks Launch Glance on the web page (not in GlanceGuest).

  5. The visitor may be prompted by the browser or OS to allow GlanceGuest to be opened.

  6. The visitor begins the Screen Share session.

  7. The visitor provides a key code to the agent.

  1. The agent joins the Screen Share session from the AgentJoin page.
