Call Quality Checklist

If you can complete this checklist you are ready for a Call Quality Check.

 

Master Starter

Different devices and different browsers give the client different views of GTT. To help the client set up quickly you need to understand what the client can see. We now allow client attendance on mobile devices like iPad etc so all actors need to be 'mobile ready' and 'multi browser' confident.

 

Master Starter is quick, free, training for actors

to master setting up clients on all devices and browsers.

After the session you will receive feedback within 24 hours with a pass/fail notice once the session recording has been checked for quality. If you fail, you will get constructive advice that will hopefully remedy any issues and you can quickly book again.

Setting up the Client

on Different Devices and Browsers

30 Minutes £16.00

A training and practice service to ensure a glitch-free, stress-free start to all sessions no matter what device or browser the CLIENT attends on.

Request a range of devices and browser combinations to accumulate competency and confidence. 

You must always attend on your desktop device.
