Setup Remote Control
Remote control your main CoverJock computer with Teamviewer using a LAN connection. Having the ability to have remote access to the main machine can be vital, be anywhere in the club and answer stage calls or put dancers off on private dancers. If on the other hand you have a marker, hand the remote control unit to them and they can walk around marking dances.
If the club would like the CoverJock team to setup the Teamviewer for you, there is a setup charge. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
