Add a new channel

To add a new channel to your account, follow the steps below.

1. Within your ScreenPal hosting account, from the left navigation bar, click the plus icon () to the right of Channels.



This opens the New Channel dialog:



2. For Title, enter a title for the channel.

3. For Description, enter a brief description of the channel, if needed.

4. Under Custom Logo/Image for Channel, click Upload Logo to upload an image or logo that will be displayed at the top of the channel page.

5. Under Visibility, select the visibility setting for the channel. More information about visibility settings can be found in our Channel and video visibility settings article.
Note: If you are part of a Team Plan and your Team Administrator has set your team's default visibility setting to Team User, you will not be able to change the channel's visibility.

8. For Channel Layout, select Channel Carousel or Channel Sidebar
Info: A channel carousel can display up to 50 pieces of content. If you have over 50 pieces of content in your channel, you will need to use the Channel Sidebar option.

9. To enable your users to record and submit uploaded videos from within the channel, switch the Allow Users to Launch Recorder in Channel to the ON position.

10. To save the new channel, click Save.

Edit a channel

To change the settings for an existing channel, simply select that channel from the sidebar on the left side of your content page (or click details on the channel thumbnail) and then click the Edit button in the top right corner.


This opens the Edit Channel page, which contains the same menu as the New Channel dialog.

You can also reorder the videos in your channel from the channel page:
1. Click the Reorder button at the top of the page.



2. Drag and drop the videos into the desired order.
3. When you are finished, click Save Order.




Sort your channels

You may wish to sort your channels to more easily find content in your Hosting account or to order them by date and time, title, or visibility.

1. First, go to your Channels page by clicking Channels in the menu on the left of your Content page.



2. Click the Sort by list in the top right of the Channels page and select one of the available options.
You can sort by Title, Most Recent, Visibility setting, Video Count, Image Count, and View Count.


3. You can also sort in either ascending or descending order by clicking the arrows next to the Sort by list.




Add a video to a channel

To move one of your videos to a channel, follow these steps:

1. From your ScreenPal hosting account, hover a video on the Content tab, and select the checkbox in the top left corner of the video thumbnail. 
2. Click the Add all to channel icon that is displayed at the bottom of the screen.



3. This opens the Channels page, enabling you to select an existing channel to which you want to add the selected video.



When you upload a video to a channel, the video retains its own visibility settings, rather than taking on the visibility setting of the channel. For example, you can upload a Public video to a Password Protected channel. To view the video from the channel, viewers must first enter a password to access the channel. When viewers access the video from a direct link, however, they will be able to view it without entering a password.
