Creating Shortcuts

Overview

 

There are a many scenarios where it makes sense for an entry to appear more than once in the UI. For example, you might want to:

 

assign different access rights to the folder

create a favorite folder with everything centralized

reuse a document for different scenarios

 

However, doing this manually is time consuming, tedious and prone to error. But no longer!

 

Solution

 

Fortunately, Remote Desktop Manager makes creating shortcuts easy, simple and quick! It works by saving the entry once in the database, while linking it to more than one group. So when Remote Desktop Manager loads the data, it automatically creates a link to the original entry. You don’t have to lift a finger – everything is done for you, to save your time and simplify your life.

 

Same Entry in Two Groups

 

Creating a Shortcut: Option 1

 

One way to create a shortcut is by using the menu Edit -> Create Shortcut...

Simply choose the destination folder for the shortcut. Remote Desktop Manager will automatically refresh and display the new shortcut in the list.

 

There is no visual difference between the shortcut and the original entry. Therefore, you’ll need to delete all entries to completely remove them.

 

Creating a Shortcut: Option 2

 

A second way to create a shortcut is via the session properties. Since the shortcut is based on a group list, simply add a session in multiple groups by setting two or more destinations, which are separated by semicolons “;”. You can also use the browse button (…) and select more than one group by holding the Ctrl key while clicking on the tree node.
