How do I publish a Vv?

  1. Select the Vv in the web portal
  2. Make sure you are done editing the Vv
  3. Review and edit the permissions of people associated with the Vv
  4. Click the "Publish" option

As a Project Owner, after you've created the structure for your Vv, you have the opportunity to open that same Vv on your mobile device and create voice+gaze recordings. These recordings help your end users connect with the content. You are not required to create these recordings but they do help you tell a more compelling story about your design variations.

We refer to most content oriented operations on the Web Portal ( as being in the "Editing" phase. Creation and editing operations that take place within the Visual Vocal mobile VR app are part of the "Annotating" phase.

The general steps for taking a Vv all the way through the publishing stage are:

  1. EDIT: Upload and organize your content on the web portal
  2. ANNOTATE: add voice+gaze recordings via the Visual Vocal mobile VR app
  3. PUBLISH: an email is sent to end-users (Stakeholders and Viewers) that there is a new VV ready for them to interact with.

    3. Also take a look at the role set for each person and confirm that the roles are set correctly. To change the role in the context of the selected Vv, click on the row corresponding to a person and change their role in the Details pane. Make sure to click the "Save" button in the Details pane after changing their role.
  7. After adjusting the invites list for this Vv, go back to the "Vvs" heading.
