- Working with multiple screens and avoiding risks of user input in the incorrect area
- When shadowing other users

Note: This feature supplements existing functionality available for “static” configuration of user access to Remote control. Make sure users that need this ability do have “Enable remote control” setting checked within their profile configuration and are allowed to “Interact with the session”.
