Use cases




Call starts and customer automatically access the appropriate website. The screen sharing allows the agent to see exactly what the customer sees on his screen.


Call setup


The customer is accessing the support webpage and the agent receives a request on Salesforce Live Agent.  Once accepted, the agent is able to see the customer’s connection status. 

Co-browse use case requires the customer to be connected through the RTCC driver.

The agent can use these buttons to establish the call:


Customer is on a desktop (PC/Mac):



« Send download link » button to provide the customer with the link to install the driver


« Reconnect » click on this button once the customer has installed the driver and is ready to start the call.


« Video Call » Click on this button to actually start the call.



Customer is on a smartphone or tablet (Android/iOS):



« Video call or download app » button to either redirect the customer to the Play Store/App Store or start the call through the SightCall application.  



The agent can begin  to interact with the customer via sceensharing, allowing him to guide the customer.


Place Circle  

When this icon is selected, the agent can place circles using the mouse right click. This allows to show the customer where he has to click or look at.



When this icon is selected, the agent can draw lines using the right click button on the mouse. He is then able to guide the customer through a specific scenario.




Save Image

Should the customer  want to save  the agent’s instructions for a future use. The « Save Image » button allows the agent to save the webpage sharing including annotations as an image he/she could later send to the customer.


Clear screen

This button removes all annotations (circles and drawing) from the webpage sharing.


URL to co-browse



The agent always has the ability to redirect the customer to another website, or reopen the original website if the automatic sharing failed for some reason. Please make sure to add ‘http://’ to your link as it will not work with just ‘’.
