      • When you have finished recording, you can do the following:
        - Edit the title of your video
        - Select a viewing mode (available for a Team only)
        - Set an Intention for self-reflection or collaboration with Sessions
        - Apply video tags (available for a Team only)
        - Select a thumbnail
        - Trim the video



        You can also edit your videos from your Library in Teams app. 

      • When you have finished the recording, you can delete your video.



        You can also delete videos from your Library on the Teams app. Please note that as long as the video was uploaded, deleting it here will only remove the video from your mobile device. It will remain in your Teams by Swivl Library on the web.

      • Once you have finished recording, the next step is to upload the video to your Teams library on the web. After your video finishes uploading, you can access it by going to https://cloud.swivl.com. From there, you can view, edit, create time-stamped comments, and share your video.

         

        Please note that you have the option to toggle both Auto-upload and Storage saver On or Off in Settings. The Storage saver feature automatically deletes a video from your mobile device after upload has completed. Do not interrupt the WiFi or turn off the mobile device during upload.

        Please be informed that the settings are set to "Auto-upload" ON and "Storage saver" OFF by default. 

      • Available for a Team only
        Once your video is uploaded, you can share it from both the Teams mobile app and from the Teams website.

        Option 1. Direct Share to other Swivl Teams users

        Direct share allows you to share the video directly with any registered Swivl user. The person will receive the email and be prompted to sign in to the Swivl account to watch the video in the Feed tab. Also, this person will be able to leave comments on this video.

        Option 2. Share to a Group

        This option allows you to add videos to a group of your teammates so they can watch your videos and leave comments. 

        Any videos that your group-mates share with a group will be displayed in the Group tab.

        Not sure how to create a group? - Please check the following article: Creating and Managing Groups.


        You can select your 'favorite' groups (the groups with which you share the videos most frequently) by ‘pinning’ them.

        Option 3. Share an Unlisted Weblink

        Sharing an unlisted weblink allows you to share videos with anybody. Non-Swivl users can watch a video as well. Therefore, this method is not private or secure.

        As a reminder, when you share via a weblink, the recipients with whom you share the link won't be able to leave comments directly on the video.

      • 1. Download the Teams by Swivl app in GooglePlay.

Home Screen icons:

The number of icons you see on your Home Screen might differ. Enable or disable the options you need in the Home Screen Action Bar section in the Settings tab. To find out more Home screen icons, check the articles about the Swivl app for iOS or Android.

Tips for capturing a video with a robot:

1.  The Swivl Robot will track the Primary Marker while recording. Be sure to stay between 5 and 20 feet away from the Swivl base while holding the Primary Marker.

2. Tap the Robot & Marker icon at the top right corner to: 

  • ensure the robot-device connection is successful before you start recording;
  • make sure all of the markers are on and paired with the base if you are going to use several markers for the video recording;
  • adjust marker sensitivity to find out the best configuration for your recording environment;
  • find brief setup instructions on how to connect your device to the robot if it is not connected yet.

3. You can connect speakers to your Swivl base if you want the Primary Marker used by the teacher to be amplified while recording the video with your Teams app.

Video Capture Features:

  • Multi-Camera Options: Tap the Video icon on the Home screen to open the Multi-Camera recording menu. From there, you will access your join pin for other devices to join your Multi-Camera recording or you can verify when other devices have joined successfully. For more information on Multi-Camera, visit our article
  • Marker Options: Tap the Marker icon on the Home screen to open the Marker menu.  Change the volume at which audio is recorded from each marker by tapping each marker and adjusting the sliders. You can always verify which markers are turned on by opening the Marker menu. Markers that are turned on will be filled in with their marker color; if they are turned off, they will show black with only the outline of their marker color. 
  • Every time recording is started and then stopped, a new video will be created in the Teams app Library.
