Organizing your videos in categories

Categories is a way for you to organize your videos. A category can represent a specific topic or a theme and when divided between them your videos can be browsed based on which category they belong to. Click Inbound → Manage categories to get started organizing your videos in categories.

Organizing categories

When you click the "Inbound" tab at the top of the page and then select "Manage categories", you are presented with a list of all your categories. If you click the "Organize categories" link in the sidebar to the right, you will be able to rename each of the categories, change the order of them by dragging the arrows and you can delete a category by clicking on the small trashcan. If you make any changes here, remember to click the "Save categories and ordering" button at the bottom of the page.

Options and stats for each category

You can click your way into each of the categories to see a few key analytics numbers for this category, and you have four options in the sidebar:

  • Videos: Here you can see that videos that belong to this categories, and like on the main overview page, you can click each of them to edit the single videos.

  • Edit: This will present you with a form where you can specify a name for the category and give it a description.

  • Embed: This is where you will find the embed source of your category. Also, you can share a category using the link found here.

  • Actions: Actions defined for a specific category will work seamlessly across all the videos placed in this category. Read more about Actions here.

  • Ordering: Here you can drag and drop the individual videos to change the order of them. The videos will appear in this order on the frontend of your video website, unless you choose to overrule this order in the settings of eg. a thumbnail layout block.
