Broadcasting Messages to Live Participants

From your Live Interview Dashboard, you are able to send one-way broadcast messages to selected participants in your upcoming circuits.

Click the “Write new broadcast” button to open the modal.

Here you are able to enter your message. Please note that only text messages are allowed; no images or videos. The character limit is 150 characters - more than a tweet! You can use the basic formatting tools to bold, italicize, underline, or strike through your text.

You are able to select from several options for who will see this message.

“All applicants” will display this message to every applicant when they open their link. Reviewers and observers will not see this message.

Similarly, you can choose to send only to reviewers, only to observers, only to presenters, or any combination of these.

“Selected participants” will bring up a menu for you to choose specific applicants to send the broadcast. This could be a single applicant with a specific problem you’d like to address, only reviewers in a specific room to update their question, or to a subset of users.

If you choose all applicants, reviewers, observers, and presenters, you will not be able to select “selected participants” since you’ve chosen to include all participants. If you would like to choose participants, unclick at least one option.

Once you are happy with your message and recipients, click “Continue.”

You will have the opportunity to review your message, as well as those who will receive it.

Click “Go Back” to continue editing your response, or to adjust your recipients. Click “Post” to send your message.

You will receive confirmation that your message has been sent.

This is an example of what a message looks like upon receipt. To dismiss a message, simply click the “x” on the right hand side.

You are able to send multiple messages to the same recipients, or different messages to different participants as the need arises. You can begin sending messages at any time before the start of the circuit, and are able to continue sending messages throughout the duration of the circuit.
