Changing Permissions of Items

Depending on your account Role and Access Permissions, you can change the permissions of videos, sessions, sources, and feeds for other users or groups. This allows other users or groups to view the video (live or recorded) and metadata, to edit the metadata, and in the case of sessions, to start their own recordings. You can specify permissions for each user or group that you invite.

The steps are the same for items such as sessions, videos, sources, and feeds.

    Or click the 
     icon for a single item to open the Information pane. 
  2. On the Information pane, click the Access tab.
