  1. Protected Users

    Could we add support for using accounts that are members of the Protected Users group?
    On a Windows Server 2012 R2+ domain, I am not able to use the RDP app with my account that is a member of this group. (Error code: 0xc07)

  3. Have an option to swap Alt-Tab with Command-Tab, and Control key with Command Key.

    Have an option to swap Alt-Tab with Command-Tab in the Remote Desktop Session. That way, instead of leaving the Remote Desktop when pressing Command-Tab, I'd switch Windows, which is what I want and I do the most.

    Swap Control key with Command Key: On Mac almost everything is Command-Something (including Copy, Paste, Find, etc.) I know Command-C and Command-V work already and that there's an option for that, just wish all other Command keystrokes worked too (such as Command-F to find, instead of Control-F).

    These suggestions are to make Mac users like myself more productive when using Remote Desktop sessions…

  6. Ctrl Alt **** hold function

    For the key combination functions, it is annoying to actually hold two buttons like Ctrl +C or Windows +R.

    It would be really handy if those Function Keys can be hold by tapping it and then we can tap the other key.

    Right now, we have to physically hold both keys and it is really tricky on iPhoneornother small screen. But if those function keys has two status, pressed/unpressed, that would be really handy. And it will also make it easier to do three key combinations.

  10. Dynamic Connected Group

    It would be awesome if a dynamic group is created every time you connect to desktop(s) that only shows all your open connections...So you can easily disconnect from all your sessions at the end of the day rather than filtering thru all your groups (I have many).

  13. Favourites List

    When you have a long list of devices that you connect too, it can be hard to find certain devices that you connect to often. It would be nice if you could favourite this and have them listed at the top. Either that or a most frequently used list.

  17. Prevent Screen auto dimming in 9.3.9 with swift point mouse

    Im using the TestFlight iOS version of RDP (9.3.9) and it works beautifully with the Swiftpoint GT mouse however I’ve noticed that because you’re not touching the screen, the iPad screen automatically dims as it would if you didn’t touch it for several minutes. Even though the mouse pointer is moving and I’m being active.

    Is there a way to detect that the mouse is being used and prevent the autodimming of the screen?

  19. Add a field allowing to add comments and notes about a RDP connection.

    In the "edit" dialog, a new field would be very helpful : "Comments/Notes". In this field, we could write side-notes relative to the RDP connection (how to use it, where we left last time, if this is a VM or not, ...anything else... !)
