Now, because you haven't set up a closed caption profile, you won't see any caption requests on this page, because no one has been able to make a request yet! 

Click "Manage Profiles" in the upper-right of the screen. Then, click "Add Profile" to create your first profile.

When you click "Add Profile," you'll be able to give your new profile a name, and optionally designate it as the default profile for requests. 

You'll then select "Rev" as your caption provider and the API key you copied from the Rev website as the User API Key.  

Select the quality of caption from options as well as the desired turnaround time.  

Click "Save" to finish creating the closed caption profile!
