Start Attended Support Sessions

Attended support sessions are those in which a customer is at their computer or on a mobile device to join the support session with the agent using a support key (i.e., the supported computer or mobile device is "attended" by the customer). Agents can use the GoToAssist Expert desktop application to launch support sessions.

Start an attended support session

    • If the application is already installed
      • Windows– Right-click the GoToAssist Expert icon in the system tray.

        Note: If the GoToAssist Expert icon does not appear in your system tray (Windows), find the application on your computer, open it and log in with your GoToAssist email and password when prompted.

  • Mac – Find and launch the GoToAssist Expert desktop application, then use the Application menu in the top navigation to select SessionStart Support Session.

  • If the application is not yet installed, you will need to install the GoToAssist Expert desktop application for Windows or Mac.

  1. A new session and session key is ready to go when the application opens. Then invite the customer to the support session.
