N-able Take Control & RMM: Introducing Automated User Synchronization 

We’re pleased to let you know that it is now possible to automatically synchronize technician users between Take Control and RMM.  It means that when you add a new technician user to Take Control, it will also add the user to RMM.  

This eliminates the need to manage the same users separately in both solutions. The user sync is the same feature that already exists between MSP Manager and RMM, so partners who have all three solutions are now able to keep technician users in sync across the board.  

The user sync can be particularly useful for partners who are taking advantage of the Take Control ‘Fast Assist’ feature, which was released to RMM partners earlier this year. Fast Assist allows technicians to jump onto ad-hoc attended remote access sessions for devices not yet under management, for example in customer onboarding or working from home scenarios.

N-able RMM: Updates to One-Click Agent Installer, New GA Agent, More Patch Management Apps, Sneak Peak of User Chat 

Today, we are pleased to let you know that we will be releasing several improvements to RMM’s main agent installer, designed to make it easier to work with and help you onboard devices more efficiently. 

The ‘one-click installer’ agent (also referred to as the ‘remote worker’ agent) is the simplest Windows and Mac agent to run for both technicians and end-users. As such, we’re making it the pre-eminent agent option in the UI, by adding an ‘Add Device’ button to the north pane, and an ‘Add Device’ link to the Agent and File menus.  

This launches a simple 2-step wizard to create the agent package: Just select the desired client and site, et voila. Whenever the agent is subsequently run, it will automatically add the device to the selected client and site.   

Here are a few screenshots that show the upcoming update:
