Lets’ get this straight then
So now, we translate that same philosophy into the two different ways of allowing a client to start a remote support session. In the Console you’ll find two options meant to launch sessions – New Session and Calling Cards -, each one holding two different session “triggers”:
1.New Session – Pin Code and Support link
2.Calling Card – Calling Card ID and Calling Card Link
The “Pin Code” and the “Calling Card ID” consist of a sequence of numbers, whilst the “Support link” and the “Calling Card Link” are… well, links. For example, when providing phone tech support, it’s much easier to provide the numeral sequence to the client, instead of spelling a whole link, letter by letter (so that should ease your pain). In the other hand, if you’re working through e-mail or chat, it is much easier to copy-past the link and instruct the client to introduce it on his browser. So there you go, two different scenarios covered.
Now, the tricky part is really answering the question: Why New Sessions and Calling Cards? Because they have nothing in common. Well, that’s a bit of an overstatement, but we will get into that whole scenario specification thing some other day.
