Nieuw in versie 8 is onder andere de mogelijkheid om een sessie aan een ander over te dragen, na afloop van een sessie notities toe te voegen en onlinevergaderingen in Outlook op te nemen. Verder is er een managementconsole, waarin onder meer gebruikersaccounts kunnen worden beheerd. De volledige release notes voor versie 8 kunnen hieronder worden gevonden.
Completely new: The TeamViewer Management Console
- Session handover from one expert to another
Invite a colleague to an active remote control session to resolve a support case together. If necessary, you can hand over the session completely.
- Comment on sessions for billing documentation
Enter your comments immediately after closing the remote control session. In your TeamViewer Management Console you will find all the information clearly documented, e.g. for billing. Platform-comprehensive for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android.
- Share selected groups with other TeamViewer accounts
Do you provide service to your clients together with colleagues? Now it is easy to share individual groups on your computers & contacts list with the team, so that your colleagues have quick access on shared client computers. Read or write permissions can be set individually.
- Easy remote printing in your home office
Simply print out documents from remote computers on the printer next to you, e.g. while connecting to your office from home, without having to transfer files. You will always have all the important documents for a meeting or a client visit on hand, even if you have forgotten them at the office.
- Schedule online meetings easily in Microsoft Outlook
Now you can plan your online meetings directly in your Outlook calendar via the integrated TeamViewer button. Briefly convert existing appointments into TeamViewer meetings and send the updated invitation conveniently with the necessary access information.
- Session recording, including sound and video for perfect documentation
Record both, online meetings and remote control sessions, including sound, VoIP, and videos. Ideal for proofs and training in the near and distant future.
- Remote sound and video
Hear and see what is happening on the remote computer, whether it is a system sound, music, or videos. You can now show your participants a video in real-time during an online presentation, depending on computer performance and internet connection.
- Remote account logout
View current logins to your TeamViewer account in the TeamViewer Management Console. Close them later if you happen to have forgotten to log out of your account when having worked on another device.
- Automatically lock of the computer after remote access
The remote computer is automatically locked instantly if the connection is closed or interrupted. This ensures that no one gains unintended access to the Mac or Windows computer you were just connected to.
