There are three ways that you can invite your interview partner to join your StoryCorps Connect interview.
Sending invite link via Email
The easiest way to invite your interview partner is to send them the invite via email.
If you select the “Join by StoryCorps Connect” tab, enter the participant’s email address and press the red “Invite via email” button. Your interview partner will receive an email that includes a link to join your StoryCorps Connect interview.
Sharing invite link directly with participant
You can also invite your partner to join your StoryCorps Connect interview by copying your interview link and sending it directly to them.
If you select the “Join by StoryCorps Connect” tab and copy and paste the link that appears above the StoryCorps Connect interview window, you can send the interview link via text, email, or your preferred messaging app.
Once your interview partner receives the link, they can click it and will be navigated directly to your StoryCorps Connect interview.
Connecting with interview partner via telephone
If your interview partner does not have access to a computer or a stable internet connection, you can also call your interview partner using StoryCorps Connect.
Simply select the “Join by Phone” tab, enter your interview partner’s phone number and press the red “Call Interview Partner” button. You’ll hear your interview partners phone ring in StoryCorps Connect and once they answer the call, you can begin recording your StoryCorps Connect interview.
