The holiday season is fast approaching and with it comes days, or even weeks away from the office. Whether you plan to work remotely over the holidays or just need to stay connected in case of an emergency, LogMeIn gives you the tools you need. Here are four tips to help you prepare for this holiday season:
- Connect your computers – Make sure you add all of the computers you’ll need to access to, to your LogMeIn account. It only takes a few minutes to download the LogMeIn software on your computer. From there, simply leave on the computers you’d like to access and you will be able to access it from any web browser using your LogMeIn ID.
- Empower employees – If your colleagues or employees need to stay connected over the holidays, ensure you give them the appropriate rights and permissions to access specific computers and software. This is especially helpful if you will be out of communication for a period of time (ie, a long flight or destination with poor cellular service) when clients or customers might need to reach you.
- Get the app – You never know when work might call and you may not have your laptop. Download the LogMeIn app, which allows you to remotely access your computer from anywhere. With the app, you can access your desktop, share or send files, and communicate with your team.
- Power up – Ensure that you leave your computer(s) in the office with the power on and connected to a power source. The machine needs to be on in order for you to remote into it. Worried about privacy? As soon as you start the remote session, click ‘Screen Blanking’ from the Remote Control Toolbar so your screen isn’t visible to anyone who might be near your computer in the office.
