Office Help Home
Clients utilizing a Clubessential hosted platform can access their Office application by establishing a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection from their local workstation to the Clubessential Hosted server. Once the remote connection is established, the Office application is available for sign-in and use.
A Club decided it was more cost-effective and efficient to move to a Clubessential Hosted solution, rather than continue to support the server and backups locally at the Club. To access the hosted solution, the Club now uses a Remote Desktop Connection to access their Office application.
