New GoTo issues/missing features
While trying to work with the new version of GoTo, I experienced some issues. I am hoping to see some fixed and others added to the list of fixes for future releases.
Is there an ETA on when the old GoToMeeting will no longer be available?
- The Lag with Organizer using keyboard and mouse that is experienced from long GoTo session is awful. (High Priority)
I did a GoTo support Call and Eric switched the hardware acceleration off to see if that helps.
I was doing a 4 hours session, the lag was really bad when I had a user as a presenter and I was trying to remote control the mouse and keyboard. The mouse was worse than the keyboard, but laggy.
- Admin requesting keyboard/mouse (Medium Priority)
In the older version of the app, I was able to request keyboard and mouse from the presenter and even have it so that it is done during making them presenter.
-require app (medium priority)
There are times when people join in on the Web version and it limits the ability that can be done. I am now told that the older GoToMeeting App version limits ability for the GoTo version.
In the previous version of GoToMeeting, you could see who is using the (Web) and who is not. It would be nice to see that again and who is on the (GoToMeeting) vs the (GoTo).
It would be nice if the organizer, click on the user and request them to switch to GoTo App.
The remote screen control on the new GoTo app is not very functional.
I've been using GoToMeeting for years because it's always been the best tool for remote screen control. I work with clients all day helping them use Tableau to work with data and build visuals.
A few weeks ago, I was forced over to the new GoTo app and am not able to use the old GoToMeeting app anymore. In the new GoTo app, there is still the capability to give remote screen control, and I've had it work fine for a few minutes at a time, but inevitably it starts to fail.
I've noticed two significant issues; 1) After a few minutes, a significant lag time develops. Probably in the ballpark of 5-10 seconds. Enough to make it barely worth it to use the remote control. 2) The mouse starts moving wildly and has a mind of it's own.
Please note two things. 1) I never had this issue with GoToMeeting which I've been using for almost a decade. Funny enough, the superior remote screen control was my favorite thing about GTM. 2) This has happened with numerous clients on numerous days. It's not an issue with an internet or my clients moving their mouses. I've worked with these people for years on GTM and never had this issue. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. It doesn't fix it.
So I think the remote screen control capability needs to be more thoroughly tested for extended periods of time and fixed. I would like to keep using your product but I can't see it being a fit long-term if this isn't resolved.
P.S. I know there is a crazy workaround to use GTM but it sounds like it's being discontinued anyways so that's not a long-term solution.
Hi @BenjaminLanders welcome to the GoTo Community. Thanks for your detailed feedback. Please note:
It's been a few months now. GoToMeeting Classic is completely dead, but the mouse control is still unusably laggy. Is that on a bug/fix list somewhere that I can track, maybe? We can work with the more complicated Ask-customer-to-share-screen-and-give-keyboard-and-mouse-control process, but the ~15 second mouse delay has been a show-stopper.
Hi @Sergio526, please continue to use the Report an Issue option when you are experiencing lag like that, improving session performance is an ongoing goal for the team. We plan to add the Request Remote Control option to the GoTo App to make gaining control easier. Once it is available we will announce it in the community.
Reading back in this thread as far as January, I can see the lag has not been addressed yet. I am at the point where I am going to discontinue my subscription to GoTo due to this lag. it is extremely difficult to work remotely with clients this way.
Hi @AC106 welcome to the GoTo Community.
I'm sorry to hear about the lag. Can you please let me know a few details about what and when this is happening?
Also, please see Glenn's post above yours on how to report an incident when it happens, it's a helpful way for the team to learn. Thank you!
