My Pitt Video: Availability (Publishing)

My Pitt Video (Panopto) allows you to designate the time frame when a session is available. This can be set at the folder or session level, allowing you to control what your viewers can see and when. This help sheet will walk you through the steps on setting up Availability rules for your folders and sessions.

Setting up Availability on Folders

To set up or change the Availability rules on the folder level, you will first want to locate the desired folder you wish to modify.

Hover over the folder name and click “Settings” to be taken to the Folder Overview page.

Click “Settings”.

These are the Availability rules.

Choosing when sessions become available

In the Availability section you will see the option "Sessions become available".

Below is a breakdown of your three options:

  • Immediately - All sessions recorded or uploaded will become available to the viewers upon completion. This can be overridden by setting the availability per session.
  • Never - All sessions will be hidden from viewers by default. To make a specific session available to the viewers, you will need to set the availability on the session level.
  • Starting on - All sessions in the folder will be available starting at the data and time specified. This can be overridden by setting the availability per session.

Choosing when sessions remain available

  • Until - Viewers will lose access to the sessions on the date and time you can specify. This can be overridden by setting the availability per session.
