In order to create a new shareable recorder, there are two options for navigating to the relevant page to get started.
​
Option 1: Click on the "New recorder" button under the Quick Actions section of the Dashboard.

Option 2: On the left-hand side bar, click on the "Recorder" section under the "Embed" subheading. Then click on the "+ Create recorder" button in the top right-hand corner.

On the "Let's get started" section of the new recorder, you have various customizable options. These include:
​

  • Adding a new name for the recorder

  • Adding a new description for the recorder

  • A drop-down list to choose which folder you would like to assign the contents of your recorder too

  • A drop-down list to assign the recorder to a specific team member

  • Checkboxes to permit whether you want to collect audio recordings, video recording, local files or multiple uploads

  • A checkbox allowing Speak to automatically transcribe and analyze your submissions when you receive them

  • A checkbox to notify you when you've received a new recording

Configure your recorder to your liking and press the "Next" button on the right to proceed.

On the "Information to collect" page, you have the option to add questions that will be prompted for whomever interacts with your recorder. "Name" and "Email" are default prompts that can be deselected by clicking on the checkboxes to the left of the question. You can add an all new question by pressing the "+ Add question" button and typing out your question in the provided text box. If you decide you no longer want to include your questions, click the "X" button to the right of the relevant text box.

When you are ready to proceed, click on the "Next" button on the right.
​
On the "Customize" page, you are given options to change the Logo and Brand Color that will appear on your recorder.

When you are ready to proceed, click on the "Next" button on the right.

On the final "Share" page, you are given two options for sharing your recorder with the world. The first is a link that will direct anyone it is shared with to your recorder. The second is an iframe that can be placed on your personal webpage, and applicants can apply their recordings directly from your page.
​

Once you have copied and shared your provided links, you can either click the "Done" button to save your recorder or the "Create a new recorder" button to save and start the process all over again.
