Moving a Panopto folder out of My Folder and applying permissions

NOTE: When you move a subfolder from My Folder it retains the My Folder permission set. Once the subfolder is in a new location, you must adjust the permissions so that others may view the recordings. Permissions only need to be changed for folders moved out of My Folder.

  1. Select Panopto Video from your Canvas course navigation menu.
  2. Select the Open in Panopto icon to open Panopto in its own tab (See Fig. 1).Screenshot of the Panopto Video screen with red arrow pointing to Open in Panopto icon
