Background

The first step in collaborating on a video is to send the video to others for review. Both SundaySky users and those without access to the SundaySky platform can review a video.

The video that you send is a "snapshot" of the video at the specific time and date on which it was sent. If you make changes to the video in the platform after sending it for review, those changes are not reflected in the video that others have received. To see the changes that you have made, you'll need to send a new version for review. There is no limit to the number of times that you can send the same video for review.

After a video is sent for review, a history is created. When you access this history, you'll see a list of all the past reviews. By each review version, you'll be able to see to whom the video was sent.


Sending a Video for Review

1. Open the relevant video in the Studio.
2. Click the preview button in the workspace.

3. (Optional) If your video includes personalization, you can select the viewer profile that will define what content is included in the video sent for review.
▶ If your video does not include personalization or you would like to see the default content without any personalization, skip this step.

6. Select the users to whom you want to send the video for review.

7. (Optional) In Review Name, enter a name for the review you are sending (for example: First Version).
By default, the review name format is [viewer profile name] or Untitled followed by the timestamp. Untitled is used for a video without a viewer profile.
8. (Optional) Add a message that will be included in the email sent to the reviewers.
9. Click Send Invitations.
  An email with a link to access the video in the reviewing module is sent to each reviewer.
▶ If for any reason the emails cannot be delivered, you will receive notification.

Managing Reviews

After you send a video for review, you can access the Manage Reviews option using any of the following access points:

Share for Review Menu
(Preview Window)
Your Videos: Grid View Your Videos: List View
Manage_reviews.png

All the reviews that you initiated or were invited to are displayed, each one in a separate row. To access any one of the reviews, click anywhere in the relevant row.

For each review, the following information is displayed:

a. The name given to the review. If required, it can be edited by hovering over the review row and clicking the pencil icon.
The names can be sorted in ascending or descending order using the column header.
b. The date and time on which the review was sent. This column can be sorted by newest or oldest using the column header.
c. The reviewers to whom the video was sent. Hovering over an avatar displays the reviewer's email address.
d. If the video sent is based on a viewer profile, an information icon Information_icon.png is displayed when hovering over the row. Clicking the icon displays the data that was included in the video content.
If the video does not include data, the information icon is not displayed.
e. The Get link icon is displayed when hovering over the row. Clicking the icon copies the review link so that you can resend it to an existing reviewer. If you would like to send this review to new reviewers, see Sending a Video to Additional Reviewers.

Sending a Video to Additional Reviewers

1. Locate the relevant video and then access Manage Reviews.
2. Locate the review that you want to send to additional reviewers.
3. Hover over the review row and then click the Add Reviewer icon.
