How to create Video Bookmarks and add them to your progress tracking checklists

AccessAlly Pro contains a unique feature: the Video Bookmark. When you create a Video Bookmark and add it to a checklist, your users can click on it and be taken directly to the portion of the video you want them to watch.

You can use this for one video per page, for example if it’s a really long video and you want to make it easier for people to skip to the right part or remember where they left off.

You can also add multiple videos to the same page, and have each bookmark start the correct video on the page.

This tutorial video shows you how to create them.

Please note that this feature currently works with videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, and Wistia.

Video Tutorial: Auto-Complete Video Checklist

With AccessAlly Pro you can also track when someone gets to a certain point in a video, and even trigger events by applying a tag if that happens.

When would you want to use this? If you wanted to track video progress, and remind people that they haven’t completed a module you could email them a reminder. Or you could give “points” for completing a whole video. The possibilities are endless!

Here’s the tutorial for setting up video tracking:

Additional Tips & Troubleshooting Video Objectives

If you’ve added a video using the ProgressAlly shortcode adder, but you’re not able to click on the video bookmark and see the video start playing…

Make sure that your ProgressAlly Video ID is the same in both the shortcode adder and in the Objectives list.

This is a number that you choose, and it is helpful when you have multiple videos on the same page.

Video Bookmarks

If you have many videos, you can continue the numbering convention from 1, to 2, and 3 etc.

This allows you to have bookmarks across different videos on the same page.
