Getting Started with the Mac App
To get started make a note of your license key (1) and download the Mac App (2) from your Admin Dashboard
Open the downloaded application and install then follow these steps (IMPORTANT: You may need to allow the app access it in System Preferences > Privacy > Accessibility)
1. Enter your license key from above into the Key box.
2. Make up your own code and enter it into the box. IMPORTANT: this can be anything you choose but Internet Clicker uses a shared code system so make it hard to guess and personal to your event. Do not use codes like 1234 or test1. If the code is in use by someone else the app will let you know.
3. Click the (re)connect button. This connects the app to the Internet Clicker service.
4. You will see a Connect Successfully message in the log area on the app. You are now ready to get presenters clicking!
To test the clicker works, open up a web browser on another device like your smartphone or laptop (doing it on the same device won't work as it will create an infinite click loop so do not do this), go to InternetClicker.com and enter the code in the code box on the webpage and press Submit(5). You will now see the clicker (6) - click left and right using the Red/Green buttons and you should see the app log show that A new browser has connected and will show when anyone clicks left/right (7)
To control your slide software simply now open up your presentation software and make the window active. The clicker will control whatever window is in the Foreground so if you have Keynote open and in slideshow mode as the active windows - the clicker will control this. It works with any software that requires a left/right click from the keyboard!
When minimised the Mac App displays an Internet Clicker icon in the top status bar so click this to show it again:
Important: Always click disconnect where possible when you finish your event to disconnect properly from the servers.
