How to use the Remote Control feature in MAWi


In MAWi v2 we've added the the ability to remote control any of the connected screens within the system, via the browser-based management console of MAWi.

How to use this feature

In the main dashboard of MAWi, right-click on the screen's thumbnail you wish to remote into >
Click on the Remote Control option > 
Start controlling the remote screen with your keyboard and mouse. 

To exit the remote session, double-click on the Ctrl + Alt + Q button in your keyboard or hit the X button.



The 'Remote Control' feature is accessible to users with Administrative rights. Additionally, Editors can be granted this capability if it's specifically enabled for them.
