Integration of GoToLogMeIn Rescue with BoldChat allows web site owners to combine live chat service with GoToLogMeIn Rescue's remote support.

Before you begin:

The BoldChat operator must be enabled as a technician in an active GoToLogMeIn Rescue account.

Set up

BoldChat is LogMeIn Rescue-ready right out of the box. All an operator needs to do is authenticate himself with his LogMeIn Rescue credentials.

  1. In BoldChat, the operator clicks BoldChat > LogMeIn Rescue > Authenticate.

    Result: A window is displayed asking for the operator's LogMeIn Rescue credentials.

  2. The operator submits his LogMeIn Rescue credentials.

    Result: The operator can now escalate a BoldChat session into a LogMeIn Rescue session.

How it works

Before you begin:

The operator must be in an active BoldChat session with a visitor.

  1. In BoldChat, the operator clicks Active Assist > Desktop Share to initiate a remote desktop sharing session.

    Result: BoldChat prompts the operator for LogMeIn Rescue credentials.

  2. The operator submits credentials.

    Result: In BoldChat, the operator is prompted to choose their preferred LogMeIn Rescue user interface.

  3. The agent selects a LogMeIn Rescue user interface method:
    • Web-based TC
    • TC Desktop App

    Result: In LogMeIn Rescue Technician Console, a private session is created in Waiting status.

  4. In the Technician Console, the operator sends the visitor a prompt to download the LogMeIn Rescue applet by clicking Prompt for Download in the Chat-Only Mode window.

    Result: In his BoldChat window, the visitor is prompted to download the Rescue applet to allow the remote session process.

  5. The visitor runs the applet.

    Result: Remote control applet starts. Remote control starts.

What to do next:

Chat sessions are transferred between BoldChat and LogMeIn Rescue. That is, whatever the operator or the visitor type in either application appears in both places.
