Managing hundreds or thousands of videos is simplified using the controls at the top of the VIDEOS section. 

The videos appear in a table according to your specifications. You can sort the videos by title and/ or modification date in ascending or descending order by clicking the column titles: Video Title and Modified

Feed and Channel Filter

First, use the drop-downs to select which feed or channel you wish to see. To view your entire library, choose Select Feed and Select Channel. This stage is important because all other specifications will apply according to the feed or channel you selected.

Video State Filter

You can organize videos by classifying them according to their workflow state. As seen below, there is a color indicating the video's state. 

These are the usual video state definitions (depends on workflow and moderation guidelines):

  • Pending - The video is awaiting moderation and is not ready for publication
  • Reviewed - The video is almost ready for publication but it may need to be merchandised or moderated
  • Approved - The video is ready for publication
  • Rejected: The video violates the moderation rules and cannot be used
  • Processing - Normally assigned automatically to videos that are uploading
  • Archived - The video has no use at this time but may be used at a later time
  • Error - There is a problem with the video

In addition, you can filter the video table to view certain video states. Just click on the desired state to turn the filter on or off. If you want to view one state without having to click off the other ones, just hold SHIFT and click on it. (Rejected videos cannot be filtered)

To edit a video's state, click on a video from the table. There are many additional video options, just focus on the State drop-down located at the bottom left corner. Select a state and click SAVE. (Go to Video Details to learn more about the other video options).

Additional Filters
