Hi @Amenda 

 

you mean to control the slides?

(Attached configuration) once the remote user must share, you will have to request or you will have to delegate so that you can control.

Or do you mean remote support to control the remote computer? (like teamviewer or anydesk)

Please mark if this solution helped you so that other colleagues can find it!

Hi David-Vola,

 

Thanks for the reply - it's the lower one that you are mentioning but it isn't working even I have set it, what I found is, the host is unable to give remote control to the participant anymore and only the participant CAN REQUEST the host to give authority and this involve an approval process. I believe I understand why now. 

 

@ Zoom I believe a clearer statement should be announced to users would help with most of the posts relating to remote control, especially who had experienced the original design of remote control (i.e. host can give participants the rights to control directly throught their toolbar). Please correct me if I am wrong that host can still give authority to participants directly and appreciate if anyone can show me) 

 

This is the current solution, has to be the participant to direct request remot control and host to approve.
