Create a Profile

Only TechSmith Relay administrators can manage profiles.

Profiles are the backbone of TechSmith Relay. They allow presenters to record without having to make any decisions about how the presentations are processed or where they are placed for viewing.

To create a new profile:

  • Go to Profile List under the Profiles tab.
  • Click the New Profile button.  The Profile Setup page opens.
  • Work through, from top to bottom, the tabs at the left side of the page:

List of categories on the Profile Setup page

Profile Settings
Enter a title and description, select the recording quality, and set the transcription settings for the profile. The profile description is only visible on the website. Consider carefully how you choose profile titles so that they convey their intended use to presenters.

Publish Destinations
Select the publish destinations to use for presentations processed with the profile. For example, Screencast.com.

Encode Settings
Select what kinds of encodings should go to each of the previously selected publish destinations.

Publish Accounts
Select the account to use for each publish destination/encoding combination.

Notification Selection
Select which notifications to use in the profile.

Notification Assignment
Select the encodings to associate with each previously selected notification. Each notification only includes information about the encodings associated with it.

Variable Definition
If applicable, enter the value for any variables that are used in the profile.

Associated Users
Select users to associate with the profile. This gives the selected presenters access to the profile in the recorder.

Overview
Review the setup of a profile.

Profile Test
Process a sample presentation to verify that the profile behaves as expected.
