Share a Session

Share an application session with other users who are logged in to Access Web.

Users who join your session can remotely view the application, while you are working on it. You can also transfer control of the session to participants allowing them to work remotely on your application and data files. This is useful for collaborative sessions. For example, to examine details of a model using HyperMesh or to interpret the animated results of a job in HyperView.
