Highlight key moments in your video

Highlight key moments in your video, so it’s easy for your team to get up to speed.

By adding highlights, your team can jump right to those key moments in both the video player and the transcript. They’ll also have the option to play and watch just the highlights.

How to create a new highlight

Here’s how to add a highlight to your video:

  1. Select the part of the transcript that you want to highlight.
  2. Click the highlight option that appears to the right.

Your new highlight will appear in bright green on the transcript and in your video’s progress bar for everyone to see.
