TeamViewer QuickSupport is an application in the form of a single executable file.

It enables incoming remote control connections but does not allow to start of outgoing connections. 

The QuickSupport module runs without installation or Windows or macOS administrative rights.

This article applies to all TeamViewer users.

Use case and availability

The QuickSupport module is typically provided to customers when connecting via TeamViewer for:

  • One time support
  • Devices with no admin rights
  • Users with no need for unattended access

As a license holder, you can create your own customized TeamViewer QuickSupport module with a welcome text, company branding, and other useful functions in the TeamViewer (Classic) Management Console.

TeamViewer QuickSupport is available for: 

📌Note: The QuickSupport module is a run-only executable that does not run as an installed service, so it cannot utilize multi-user mode. Due to this, we do not recommend using the QuickSupport module on Windows Server when using RDP or Terminal server sessions. Instead, we recommend using the Host module or the TeamViewer Full Client. For more information, see the article Use TeamViewer on Windows servers.

Service case and service queue

With QuickSupport, administrators can manage service requests more efficiently by having the ability to assign open service requests to specific support staff.

How to assign a service case

You can assign open service cases to other agents of your company profile and to a group within your Computers & Contacts list.

Once a new service case appears in your Service Queue, you can:

  • connect directly (if assigned to you automatically)
  • assign to someone else
  • un-assign from your account (if assigned to you automatically)

When clicking Assign, the following popup appears, allowing you to decide which group and agent to assign the case to. Alternatively, you can also choose Unassigned.

How to receive notifications

There are a few places where notifications will be received when a new service case is opened.

QuickSupport service notifications will be reflected in the following areas:

  • Management Console under Service Queue
  • Notifications area on the TeamViewer application
  • Email notifications for new service requests

How to customize your QuickSupport 

📌Note: A Business, Premium, Corporate, or Tensor license is required to create or connect to a customized QuickSupport module.

💡Hint: Please activate your TeamViewer license on your TeamViewer Account to get your customers' correct version of the TeamViewer QuickSupport for a flawless support experience.

Select a group to which the service cases created by the QuickSupport module should be added. This will create a session code that will show in the Service Queue.

Use random password*

If this option is selected, a new random temporary password for establishing a connection will be generated every time the QuickSupport module is started. 

💡Hint: Using the QuickSupport module with a password is not recommended. We recommend using the service case method by choosing "Automatically add users to a group in your Contacts list".

Use a predefined password* 

As an alternative to a random password, you can assign a personal password to the QuickSupport module. However, this excludes the functions underneath the Use random password option.

💡Hint: Using the QuickSupport module with a password is not recommended. We recommend using the service case method by choosing "Automatically add users to a group in your Contacts list".

*Will only show if "Automatically add users to a group in your Contacts list" is unchecked

Visual customization of the QuickSupport

Select your own logo, which will be displayed in the top part of the main window.

💡Hint: The size of the logo for the QuickSupport module is 100 x 270px. However, we recommend using 175 x 473 px for your logo images for regular monitors to guarantee proper layout on monitors using up to 175% magnification. The tool will automatically resize larger images to a best fit without cutting the logo. If your customers are using a higher resolution on their monitors, feel free to scale up the ratio.

You can customize the permanent link as well by clicking the Edit button (pencil icon) to the right of the link.

💡Hint: The language of the customized module will adapt to your browser language.

SOS Button

If Automatically create SOS Button is selected, a TeamViewer icon is left on the desktop of your client computer when your client runs your permanent link and you make the initial connection.

The SOS Button can be used by the same customer in the future in case further assistance is needed. Once the customer double-clicks the SOS button a new service request will be created in your Management Console.

The Title mentioned in the settings above will be inherited and show on your client's desktop SOS Button. You can always rename the shortcut as well once the SOS Button has been placed on the desktop.

When choosing a predefined password for the QuickSupport:

If there is a TeamViewer full version or Host module running on the same device as a QuickSupport module using a permanent password and you are facing issues with the connection, please connect to the TeamViewer full or Host module. In general, we do not recommend using a permanent password, but working with Easy Access via Account Assignment or the Service Queue

Especially for spontaneous support is the Service Queue the most reliable and easy to use method for a smooth experience both for the support technician and the customer. 

Should you be using TeamViewer QuickSupport with a predefined password option to connect after the device is no longer occupied, we recommend the Host.

This will allow you to connect unattended and also provide more usable features, such as multiple reboots, or changing the user account on the accessed device.

📌Please note: If TeamViewer Quick Support is used on a PC with TeamViewer already installed (Full Version/Host Version), stopping the TeamViewer Service can improve the usability of the QuickSupport.

Please open the Services with admin permission (press Windows key+R simultaneously and type in services.msc)

Next, the Services list will appear in alphabetical order.

Choose the TeamViewer service within the list (Name is including the Version that has been installed. eg. TeamViewer 15 or TeamViewer 14 …) Then choose the Stop option.

The Quick Support module should then be started and allow connectivity.
