VIDIZMO's on-demand media playback allows you to leave comments under media for interactivity among users. Leaving comments under media is a permission-based feature where Managers and Administrators can enable or disable posting comments. When a certain user signs in the Portal, they can add, edit or delete their comments.

You can configure comments either from Portal Settings or from Media Manager.


Here is how you can configure comments in a Portal:


Steps to Enable Comments from Portal Settings

1. From the Portal's Homepage,

i. Click on the navigation menu on top left corner.

ii. Expand Admin tab.

iii. Click on the Settings tab and you'll be directed to Portal Settings page.







2. From the Portal Settings.

i. Click on Library to expand the list of operations that can be performed.

ii. Select Comments.

iii. Next, select the Allow Comments checkbox to enable commenting on your portal. Selecting the Comments will be moderated checkbox also enable the option for you if you want the comments to be moderated. To learn more about moderation, click here on Understanding Content Moderation

iv. Click on the Update button to save changes.



Note: A notification will be displayed stating: Portal details have been updated successfully.


Commenting will be enabled for the Portal. However, commenting for a particular media file can still be configured while uploading the media. To learn more about Comments click on How to Comment On A Media.
