Remote Help is an app that allows you to take control of a user seat within the same organization, whether it’s enrolled in Intune or not.​

Be aware that the app is currently in free preview.​

To have Remote Help, a few prerequisites are necessary:​

The features of Remote Help are as follows:​

Setting up the feature on an Intune tenant:​

Log in to Endpoint Manager: Tenant Administration > Connectors and Tokens > Remote Help and select Enable and Allowed (if you want to take control of devices that are not enrolled in Intune).​

Role Verification:​

Go to Tenant Administration > Roles​

Remote Help Role

The Help Desk Operator Built-in role grants remote takeover rights to the School Administrator, Help Desk Operator, and Intune Administrator roles by default.​

For security reasons (rights other than Remote Help are granted by default), it’s a good idea to create a Custom Intune Role specifically for the Remote Help App.​

To do this, you need to create an Azure AD group that will contain the users who are authorized to use the Remote Help App.​

To create the Custom Intune role, go to Tenant Administration > Roles and select Create:​

In Permissions:​

Dans Permissions :

In the new Custom Intune Role, you’ll need to assign the role to an Azure AD group by selecting Assign:​

Help Desk Remote

Then give the assignment a name:​

Then select the user group assigned to this role:​

And finally, the scope concerned by future assistance via Remote Help App:​

Deploying the Remote Help App through Intune:​

After setting up roles and assignments in Intune, you need to deploy the Remote Help App to the userworkstations.​

Remote control via Remote Help App​

Launch the Remote Help application on your computer, authenticate yourself by doing Sign In:​

After authenticating, one can choose to receive or provide assistance.​

To provide help, simply click on Get a security code and then provide the code to the user.​

As soon as the user enters the code, the administrator will have the choice to ask to take the hand or to see the user’s screen.​

The user will then have to give or not give their permission.​

The message below may then appear if the device does not comply with the compliance rules. This does not in any way prevent you from continuing to take control remotely.​

Once the session is established, several options are available to interact with the user.​

Remote Help App Reporting & Auditing​

It’s a good idea to monitor the use of Remote Help in the Intune console.​

You can also export Remote Help session audits.​

Comparison of alternatives to Remote Help​

Remote Help is currently the remote control tool with the fewest features, compared to tools already on the market. Since Remote Help is still in the development phase, we can count on Microsoft to bring the tool in line with its competitors.​

On the pricing side, Remote Help is currently available for M365 E3 and E5 license holders. However, Microsoft announces an additional cost for the official release of the product.​
