New to Screen Connect. Not a tech wizard by any means, but I can usually figure stuff out. However I'm trying to discover the best practice and easiest setup to provide employees remote access to their computers using screen connect. We are leaving logmeIn and have installed a on premise screen connect server. With logmeIn Central it was pretty easy to config so that individual users could only see the machines you wanted them to see and only be able to connect the computers you wanted them to connect to. However I am having problems finding the best way to set this up with Screen Connect.

Not using AD authentication (that looks complicated to setup at this point, I will tackle that later). So in order to configure Screen Connect so that employees can remote into their PC's and only have access to their own PC's it appears that I have to either create a session group for every individual employee or a Access Grp for every employee and then create a role for every individual employee, and then create a user for every employee. (Maybe I see a way to create only 1 role of "remote user" but that seem fuzzy to me also)

This seems like a lot of work. It feels like I'm missing something and there must be an easier way. Can someone give some guidance here.
