I do not have any news about this specific feature currently, as all efforts have been dedicated to moving GoToAssist Remote Support off of Citrix systems. Once every customer is successfully moved to v4.0 build 1537 (released today to Frequent Updaters), we will be able to evaluate the outstanding backlog issues and requests. I will provide an update as soon as I am able to.
Considering LogMeIn Rescue has this ability, I personally cannot imagine that the team would be opposed to it in GoToAssist Remote Support.
I would rather stay with Windows 7 but as we are replacing older computers we are being forced to downgrade to windows 10. it is essentual that we have the ability to blank screen. if there is a security issue then have an additional layer of authentication so that only an authorized user can activate the blank screen. my annual subscription is up in 2 months and without this option we will need to look at other VPN options before renewing.
We really need this feature restored. We work in secure environments that require our remote tasks to be hidden from our client machines. I'm surprised this has taken so long to get reinstated.
@David Jones11 Now that we've officially rolled out RescueAssist, we may be working on screen blanking solutions in this new environment. I know it's a priority for many Remote Support users for security reasons, and we are actively exploring ways to implement this feature.
After over 3 years, it seems like there is no intention to address this issue. Is that correct?
It seems like a policy statement would be in order. I don't see any response like that.
"Never gonna happen" is the answer by default. Is that how it should be interpreted?
Yet, the menu option remains.....
Screen Blanking as a generally available feature across different operating systems is still on the list of feature requests, it is just not as high a priority as other work. It is only available to use when connecting to a Windows 7 PC as the team that implemented it back then used a feature that is only available in Windows 7. Since there are still a lot of PCs out there running Windows 7 it has not been removed from Remote Support.
Fred, I'm surprised it's not working for you. Our Windows 10 machines have been blanking for a long time now. Which version of Win10 are you using? It has worked since the 1809 update (and maybe before, but I didn't notice).
