The Diagnostics Tool can be used prior to or during a Boardable Spotlight meeting. As it runs, it scans the computer's video-related settings and provides actionable feedback to ensure the best virtual meeting experience.
Boardable's Diagnostics Tool checks the following:
Network - UDP
User Datagram Protocol (UDP): communications protocol primarily used to establish low-latency and loss-tolerating connections between applications on the internet
Network - TCP
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP): connection between client and server is established before data can be sent; server must be listening (passive open) in order to establish a connection for requests from client
The Diagnostics Tool can be run as may times as desired to make sure everything is functioning properly.
Note: The device / browser must allow access to the selected microphone and camera to perform these diagnostics. The Diagnostics Tool will show an alert as it runs if these are not enabled already.
To run diagnostics:
Click here: Diagnostics Tool to open the tool in a new tab
Choose the appropriate information for each box:
Click Check my device
Click Play Tone to test the speaker
A tone will play
Click Yes or No to respond to whether the tone is heard
The tool will continue to run more tests until it gets to Content Share
Select whether to share entire screen, choose a window, or choose a tab
If all is successful, the following will display and the window can be closed
If the test completes with any failures, investigate the areas that failed and run the test again. For instance, the following shows clear network issues. Check the network connectivity and Wi-Fi settings before running the test again.
If Content Share is an issue and all others are successful, it may be an issue with choosing a window. Try choosing Entire Screen or a specific Tab instead.
