Custom Prompts

Prompts are speech topics shown during a Recording. You can learn more about them here.

Create a Custom Prompt Collection

You will first need to determine whether you want to create a personal or organization prompt collection. Personal prompt collections are only available to the user who creates them, whereas organization prompt collections are available to everyone in the organization.
  1. 1.
    Navigate to the personal or organization prompt collection page.
  2. 2.
    Select 'Create a new collection'.
  3. 3.
    Give your collection a title and select the language.
  4. 4.
    Select 'Create'.
Next, you will add some prompts to the collection. Click on the collection row in the table or select 'Edit' under the Action column. You will be taken to a page that looks similar to the image below.

4. Enter the text of the prompt that will appear when displayed in the Ovation software.
5. Leave 'Use Answer Time' checked. When checked, a user will have the amount of time indicated in the Answer Time (seconds) column to answer the prompt before either the Recording ends or the next prompt in the sequence is displayed (see Prompt Sequences below). *Note that users can open the menu and end the Recording or move on to the next prompt before the answer time expires.
6. Select the save icon.
7. Select 'Create'.

Prompt Sequences

You may want to have multiple prompts during a Recording. These are called prompt sequences. An example use case would be for practicing an interview, where question 1 might be "What is your biggest strength," and question 2 might be "What is your biggest weakness" etc.
You can create a prompt sequence by adding multiple prompts to the table during creation.
When the second prompt is added, you will need to provide a title to describe the prompts within the sequence.

Select the Collection in Ovation

Once you have finished updating your prompt collection, you can launch the Ovation software and choose the collection that will be used during a Recording.
