Default value is: Every day


Choose language

Default value: local language


Choose default tab on dashboard

Lets you choose, which tab will be displayed by default, when ISL Light application is started. You can choose between 

  • Sessions 
  • Computers

Show session invitation window as session is started

If this option is checked, then an additional option to invite a client to a new session is displayed in the ISL Light application after a session is created, enabling you to immediately send your client an email with invitation link. 

Default value is: unchecked. New session is created in a new window, so even if you leave this option unchecked you will have an option to send your client an invitation from the session window or tell them the session code in any other way (over the phone, sms, etc.).

This is a default email template, you can edit it in any way you wish, just leave the invitation link as is, so that your client can connect to a session with a single click.

Show welcome tutorial on startup

If this option is selected, then helpful tips will be displayed once ISL Light is started, helping you to navigate and explaining the most important options and buttons. 

Default value is: unchecked

Close join session window once session is ended

ISL Light automatically closes after the session, in which you connected with the Join Session option, ends.


Position of the toolbar while in session

ISL Light will show the toolbar in the "top", "right" or "left" position during the remote desktop session. Changing the toolbar position via the toolbar during the session stores the changed position so that it is persistent even after ISL Light is closed.

Inactivity time in minutes before session is ended (0 is unlimited).

ISL Light will monitor the activity of the Operator. If Operator is inactive for more than specified amount of time, the session is automatically closed.

File transfer in progress (even if paused) will keep the session active even if Operator is inactive.

Duration in seconds of inactivity warning before session is ended (0 will not show the warning).

If number is specified, a warning will be displayed before a session is terminated due to inactivity, allowing the operator to continue the session.
