Videos are fun. Everyone loves a great video. When wielded appropriately, videos can be part of a user assistance strategy to wow your users.

You can view your videos at Dashboard -> Content -> Videos.

Where videos can be used in CommandBar

Videos loaded into CommandBar can be used in a variety of places.

  1. In HelpHub recommendation sets. For example, to show page-specific explainer videos.
  2. Embedded in nudges. A great way to spice up a nudge is to include a relevant video.
  3. As a step in a Checklist. A video is a great way to break up a list. Especially if the list is long and includes a lot of tasks the user must complete.

Adding a video to CommandBar

To add a video to CommandBar, head to Dashboard -> Content -> Videos, then click Add video in the top right.

From here you can upload a supported link or upload a video directly. You can also edit its title and add a custom thumbnail (CommandBar will create one by default if you don't set one manually). We currently support videos hosted on:

  • YouTube
  • Loom
  • Vimeo
  • Wistia. Note that you need to use the <iframe> embed option and then you'd want to style the video/nudge appropriately.
