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 iframe code and click the green checkmark to confirm.
