👋 Hey there,

Sometimes you have a research participant in person, at your lab or office, and you want to invite your colleagues to observe and collaborate with you in real time. 

Here's how to set it up on your Android and iOS devices - 

Android

You can test anything on Android (websites, web-based prototypes, apps, and the Android system) like this:

  1. Download our Android Participate app (learn more about Participate here)
  2. From your Lookback dashboard, create a project. 
  3. Send a Live link to the device the participant will be using (read more about getting your Live Link here!). You can send the link with SMS, chat or email.
  4. Open up the participant link on the device the participant will be using
  5. On a separate machine, view the session and then click "Start moderating"
  6. Once the session has started, immediately mute the microphone on the moderator machine (this way the audio will be recorded only from the device that your participant is using)
  7. Invite your teammates! Send your teammates a link to your project's observer link or to the Live tab of your organization's dashboard. Once a live session begins, your teammates will be able to join and stream live

iOS

To test the entire iOS system, including apps, websites and prototypes:

  1. Download our iOS Participate app  (learn more about the July 2019 Participate release, see here)
  2. From your Lookback dashboard, create a project. 
  3. Send a Live link to the device the participant will be using (read more about getting your Live Link here!). Feel free to send the link with SMS, chat, email or any messaging service.
  4. Open up the participant link on the device the participant will be using
  5. On a separate machine, view the session and then click "Start moderating"
  6. Once the session has started, immediately mute the microphone on the moderator machine (this way the audio will be recorded only from the device that your participant is using)
  7. Invite your teammates! Send your teammates a link to your project's observer link or to the Live tab of your organization's dashboard. Once a live session begins, your teammates will be able to join and stream live

Happy streaming! 📹
