One of the most important steps when preparing for an event on Talentspace is to ensure that your device is set up and ready for you to participate in our interaction formats and engage with recruiters.
You can do this by running our checks in the technical setup checklist.
Upon logging in to your account, click on the event you are participating in and scroll to the bottom of the page in the event lobby. You can open the technical checklist either in the "Get ready for the event" section or in the "Other resources" section.
Step 1 - Test your camera and microphone
Click on "Test camera and microphone" to let us connect with your camera and microphone and save those settings for event day.
If your camera and microphone are being blocked, have a look at this article to learn how to give access.
Step 2 - Test your screen sharing
Click on "Test screen share" in case you would like to share your screen in a breakout room during a Session or during a 1-1 Chat.
Optional - Share the checklist
Section 3 allows you to copy the checklist URL and share it with other participants.
Step 3 - Test your websockets, network and firewall
If you happen to be logging in from a location with any sort of network firewall restrictions, make sure to run test 4 and 5.
Click on "Show results" for test 4 and "Test network connectivity" for test 5.
Ensure you get 1 green checkmark on test 4, and 4 green checkmarks on test 5.
If you do not get all green checkmarks, this is probably because a VPN or firewall is blocking the functionalities. In that case, have a look at this list of our network and connectivity requirements, as you may have to whitelist certain domains and open ports.
Step 4 - Test your internet speed
Lastly, test your internet speed to ensure you will be able to stream videos.
