NOTE - If you do not wish to have your recording automatically published, or add any collaborators, leave the box for “Copy details from event to recording” checked, and click Save and Exit.

If you do wish to auto-publish the recording OR wish to add collaborators, please continue with step 9.

9. To publish the event or add collaborators to the recording, Scroll to the bottom and click Save to save your recording and refresh the page.

11. To add a collaborator, click “+ Add Collaborator.” In the window that displays, type a single eID and check the desire access level.

  • A co-editor can edit content and request captions.

  • A co-publisher can perform the functions as a co-editor, in addition to being able to publish the content where entitlements allow.

  • If you want to add multiple persons, you add them one at a time.

13. Publishing options

  • By default, all media will be published as “private.” Only the owner and designated collaborators can access the media.

  • “Unlisted” means that anyone within VCU and has the direct link to the media will be able to view.

  • “Published” allows you to publish the content to any category / channel in MediaSpace for which you are entitled, or publish to a Canvas Course / Organization.

NOTE - If you do not wish to publish to a category, channel or to Canvas, click Save and Exit at the bottom of the page to complete.
