In multi-departmental organizations, VIDIZMO facilitates its clients with a feature of a Channel. A client can have a separate channel for every department of an organization using this feature. It is a sub-account of the main Account in which user can perform all activities such as Manage Users and Roles, Upload and Manage Media, and Analytics, etc. This feature helps in managing Media and Users.
