As you might know already, you’re able to host video projects in Frontify, but what you may not yet know is that we now have a new feature, enabling video commenting. With it, you can comment on either the entire videos, or pick out single video sequences to leave specific feedback.
Where To Find It
To use this feature, enter the project with the video included. Once there, switch to the feedback section by clicking the talking bubbles in the power bar on your left-hand side.
Now, you have the video in the video player view, ready to be commented on.
You basically have three options to comment on your videos. The first option is to leave general feedback on the video. These comments are not specifically bound to a video sequence but provide overall feedback. To do so, simply add a comment on the conversation layer to your right without ticking the box on the bottom right. Note that you can also @mention your teammates to target the right people with your feedback.
The second option is to leave feedback on a specific point in time of the video. You can do so by stopping the video during the sequence you want to comment on and leave the tick box ticked. You can further highlight a specific point in the video or mark an area as a whole to leave your comment.
The third option is to leave a comment for a specific time period. This can be done by defining the end of the sequence to the right of the tick box. Again, you have the option to highlight a specific point in the video or mark an area as a whole to leave your comment. The highlighted area will be visible for the time period defined.
If your comment is referring to a specific time, you’ll see a time stamp on the comment and a bubble on the timeline below the video. You can quickly jump to the comments, by clicking on the bubbles. There, you have the visual context of the feedback, too.
On the comment sidebar, you have several options at hand to work on your comments. You can edit comments as a comment owner, resolve, delete, or reply to comments. Resolved comments will be shown in the ‘Resolved’ section.
Further, you can navigate through your video by using the video controls in the comment editing panel. You have the option to play/pause the video, or make 5 seconds jumps.
If you view the video in full screen, comments will pop up when the specific time is reached. This way, you’re able to view the video with all its details without missing out on any of the comments.
That’s it. In case you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team.
