TABLE OF CONTENTS

Introduction

My Library comprises of media that has been uploaded, media that has been added to playlists, collections and favorites with a key feature of privacy enabling user to manage accessibility of their content that is whether to keep it public or private. Initially when uploading the media on the portal, uploaded content couldn't be set to private as it was accessible to other users in the portal. When uploading the media, it is fairly important to give user the right to decide that whether they want their content to be private or accessed by other users in the portal.


VIDIZMO now provides user with a My Library that comprises of four tabs, which include, Uploads, Shared with me, My Playlist, My Collection and Favorites each accessible according to the user's role within the VIDIZMO portal. It provides the complete overview of the media uploaded by the user enabling them to prominently view or segregate between their private content and the content that is accessible by other portal users so that user can manage the accessibility of their uploaded content. Adding on user can also view, access, manage, sort and filter their uploaded media at one place. Moreover, the users can also perform set of action on uploaded media, search and playback the media from Personalized Library.



Note: Managers and Administrator define whether or not to allow users to manage their content accessibility that is to keep it private or public. Manage Private Content Policy can be enabled through Portal Settings. Read more about it at How to Manage Personalized Library.
