Guided Greenroom Tour
With your recently created account, you'll be taken through a series of steps to complete your account creation and prepare you for entry into the Greenroom.
The first page will prompt you to:

Once you've filled out this information and selected, "Next" you may be prompted by a browser pop-up asking for access to your computers camera and microphone. You'll want to click "yes" to allow this access.
After granting your browser access to your camera and mic
, you'll be prompted to configure your audio and video settings
. This may appear differently depending which browser you are on. Demonstrated below you'll see how this might appear on Chrome versus Firefox. Important to note is that these settings may always be changed in your profile settings after entering Greenroom.
Final Set-Up Steps
On the furthest right side of the page, you’ll be able to see a microphone icon with three dots. Those dots should move when talking, reflecting a proper audio connection.
If using Google Chrome, there will also be a small speaker icon with the word “test” next to it. This will play a small audio clip to ensure that you’ve got the correct audio output as well.
Lastly, the large screen on the left should have your camera feed. If not, make sure you’ve got the appropriate camera selected in the dropdown menu under “Camera.”
Below your video preview, you have the option to toggle your video and audio feed on or off. This feature will persist in a similar format across the platform.
The next step will measure your video transfer speed and confirm you’ve got a stable connection to go live. Give this roughly 30 seconds until you see “Done” within of the Gauge graphic. Click the done button to enter your Greenroom as a Presenter.
You are now ready to present in Greenroom!
