  1. From an existing ticket, assuming your logged in, select Start Session to initiate an agent's GoToAssist Remote Sharing application.
  2. Once ready, the App will display the unique Session ID, with the option to copy the details a ticket comment to send to the invited party
  3. When the Session is underway, the App will indicate In Session
  4. Once the agent closes the Session, key details of the session are copied as a private comment on the ticket
  5. The agent should save the ticket to ensure session details are retained
