Compare the new Vidyard platform menu to the original layout

Wondering where a feature you like is? Find it quickly with this handy comparison chart!

On April 3 the Vidyard Dashboard was switched to a new user interface. In its simplest form, this change is simply a reorganization of the menus to reflect a new, more intuitive workflow, and it will also make the dashboard more mobile friendly. (That means that all your features will remain available and will function the same, so don't worry.)

More about the new menu layout

The basis for the new menu is a workflow we call "Content, Channels, and Insights". This is the most basic workflow of any business video project. 

"Content" includes any feature involving the creation, optimization, and management of your video content. (Examples include: videos, players, splash screens, and player events or calls to action. 

"Channels" refer to any channel by which you might distribute your video. Video Hub? Channels. Video email? Channels. Sharing to social media? Channels.

"Insights" refers to all that good data and analytics we provide you about how your content is performing. This includes player analytics, your contents, and reports.

With that mindset you should be able to learn the new navigation quickly - but in case you find yourself looking for a feature in the new menu, we've created this handy map to show where features were previously, versus where they are now. Just search to find any menu item you used to have, and this chart will help you locate it.

Check out this video for a brief tour of the new menu: 

Cool, right? Contact your CSM or Support if you'd like early access to the new menu.
