The Speaker Onboarding Process allows you as a speaker to update parts of your speaker profile and check if your camera and microphone are working. Once done with those steps, you can start exploring the Studio to practice your session.
You will have access to the onboarding process once you are added to your session. You will receive an email with a link to start the onboarding. Onboarding is not a required step, but it is recommended so that you can check if your device is compatible with Accelevents.
Access the Speaker Onboarding Link
When you are added to a session as a speaker, you will receive an invite that contains 3 links. You need to click the last link in the email to start the onboarding.
My Speaking Schedule - a link that redirects to the virtual event hub where all their sessions are listed
Accelevents Studio - a link that redirects to the studio where they can start broadcasting
Speaker Onboarding - a link that redirects to the step-by-step process of updating their speaker profile and testing their camera and microphone
After clicking the link, a new tab will open where you can complete the speaker onboarding.
Step 1 - Verify the Email Address and Create a Password
This step shows the email address associated with your account and the details of the event that you're invited to speak in. You will also be asked to create a password if you haven't set up one. Click Continue.
Step 2 - Update the Speaker Profile
This step allows you to add or edit your speaker Bio. If the event admin allowed you to override profile details, you could also edit your Profile Picture, Name, Pronouns, Title, and Company.
Step 3 - Add Social Media Links
This step allows you to add or edit your LinkedIn, Instagram, or Twitter accounts.
Step 4 - Allow Camera and Microphone Browser Permissions
This step asks you to give permission to access your webcam and microphone when Accelevents is accessed through a browser. You must click the lock icon on your browser (next to the URL) to check the permissions. You will know if your camera and microphone are allowed if you see a green checkmark next to the camera and microphone icon above the page button. If all looks good, you can click Enable Camera & Mic to go to the next step.
Step 5 - Test The Camera and Microphone
This step allows you to choose which microphone and camera devices are used. During this step, you will see your camera output and hear your microphone output. Once you are satisfied with the test, click on Complete Onboarding.
Note: If you did not allow browser permission on Step 4, you wouldn't get to test your devices, and it will show that browser permission was denied. You can still go back to the previous step to check what you need to do to make it work. If you skip this part and click the Complete Onboarding button, you can enable your permissions and test later when you are in the Studio.
Step 6 - Start Accessing The Sessions
That's it! You're done with your speaker onboarding. The platform saves the information then you will be redirected to your Speaking Schedule where you can see all the sessions you are involved in. From there, you can click Join the Studio to start preparing for your session.
