This article will demonstrate how to use the new self-service video library and link the video or video preview to a specific Reservation Type.
To access and manage the Video library, Select Administration, then Self-Service, then Video Library.
Videos can be added by using the URL or by adding the HTML Code of a hosted video.
Adding a video with the URL
Locate the video you would like to add to your Video Library.
**Trainer Tip: Platforms such as Youtube and Facebook can be used to host your program videos.
Copy the URL of the selected video.
Select Video Type: URL. Add the Title to appear on the Self-Service Portal. Paste the video URL that has been copied. Select a Reservation Type to associate the video with a specific session type, then Save.
**Trainer Note: If the videos are uploaded, but not linked to a Reservation Type, they will remain in your video library for future use. Simply select Edit to link a video to a Reservation Type at a later time.
Once the video has been added, it will appear in your Self-Service Video Library. If desired, video information can be edited. Videos can also be disabled. Disabled videos can be included or excluded from the Video Library.
