You can easily create a default custom configuration setting for the videos you share via the Watch Page link 🥳 This helps if you know the settings you would always like to use for your videos-this way whenever you click the 'Copy Share Link' button, you know that your settings are exactly what they need to be ⭐️ This setting configuration is for the Watch Page link only, if you want more information on changing your sharing permissions for the Google Drive link check out this article!
A video, upon creation, is always set to 'Private.' As soon as you click the 'Copy Share Link' button, the permissions will automatically update to the default permissions you have set for your video or the default settings set by Screencastify which is 'Anyone with the link' and 'Anonymous'. You can change this default setting at any time and create a custom default configuration if you wish! Here's a quick walkthrough:
- From the Video Management Page, select 'Show share settings' (if they are not already opened) and then click on the current setting shown
- You will see that the base default setting is checked off as 'Anyone with this link' and 'Anonymously'
- To change this, select the custom share settings you would like 🥳. Click on the drop down menu options under 'Who can access this video?' and 'How do you want to track analytics?' Once you have selected your default share settings, click the box next to 'Save as Default Setting'.
- To save this custom configuration, click 'Save' This will lock in your custom settings!
Now, when you click on 'Copy Share Link' all of your videos will automatically be shared with the custom settings you've set them to!
Note: If you're sharing a video that you wish to have different share settings for other than your default, you can change those settings before sharing your video. This will not change your default sharing settings as long as you do not click on the 'Save as Default Setting' box. It will only change the permissions for that specific video.
