How to Set Up the Remote Access Dashboard

Setting up the Remote Access Dashboard is quick and easy. 

If you already have LabStats installed on campus computers, log into your LabStats portal, navigate to the “Lab Tools” tab and click “Remote Access.” Check the box to enable the Remote Access Dashboard and follow the instructions.

Enable Labs

Once the dashboard is enabled, you can choose which groups (computer labs) will show up to students. It’s important to have separate groups for remote access stations and in-person stations so you can track usage separately.
