Videos can add another dimension to your procedure documents. Instead of telling someone how to do something, show them in a video.

Videos can be inserted into Way We Do by clicking upon the "Insert Rich Media" icon which looks like a video play button and is located on the editing toolbar. The editing toolbar is only displayed when you are editing a procedure document.

When you click on the "Insert Media" icon, a dialogue box will pop-up. Simply paste the video URL and click the green checkmark to confirm.

To embed a YouTube Video

  • Find the video that you would like to embed into Way We Do.

  • Click on the "Share" link.

  • Select the link that appears by default in the dialog box by clicking the "Copy" button

  • Paste the link in the Media URL section and click save

  • Your video is now embedded in the document.

  • You can now adjust height and width of the video if needed.

Privacy Settings - Unlisted YouTube Videos

When you add your video to YouTube, you may wish to make the video "unlisted" so that it can not be searched upon within Google or YouTube itself.

An "Unlisted video" is a type of private video which means only the people who know the link to the video can view it (such as embedding the video file within your secure Way We Do account for your team to view it within procedures you add it to).

To make your video "unlisted", simply log into your YouTube account, go to your video visibility settings and then change it" from "public" to "unlisted".

More information can be found at YouTube Support.
