Establishing a remote connection to a BISD computer is a two-step process. First,
you must allow remote access on the computer that requires the assistance, and
then the Support Specialist must connect to the computer using a Remote ID.

In order to establish a secure connection to a district computer, a staff member must first provide access to their machine by launching the BISD Quick Support shortcut from their Desktop: (May take 10-20 seconds to launch)
The staff member will be prompted to allow Quick Support to makes changes to their machine, and they should select YES from the allow screen. The application will then launch and assign your computer a unique session ID, as shown in the example below:
At this point, a staff member wishing to give permission to a remote session can do so by giving their ID to the staff member that has requested to view their screen.
