In Vidigami, every group has a section for Group Sets. This is where users have the ability to view and - if permissions allow them - collaboratively bookmark media from various albums (from the current or other groups in the School Year).
Note: Unlike Albums, which are used to organize media for specific events or activities, Group Sets are used to curate media into collections for various uses, such as portfolios, yearbook content, and slideshows.
Group Sets are visible to all members within the group, as well as anyone with access to the current School Year. If a group is made ‘Private’ (Settings), then only members of the group will have access to the Group Sets within it.
Navigate to the desired Group and the select the Sets tab to see all the shared sets within a group. Here, you can choose to create a New Set or delete an existing one. See Create or Delete Sets.
Select the thumbnail for an existing Group Set to open it and view all bookmarked content.
Sharing Group Sets
Admins and Managers can choose to share content at different levels (either privately or publicly) by simply navigating to the Group Set and selecting Share Set icon.
Here, they have several options:
- Share Link to Set
The first URL generated is a Share Link to Set that takes users to the Group Set as it appears in Vidigami. Depending on the Group’s Privacy Settings, this HTML link can only be opened by registered members of the current School Year and/or the members of the group.
- Share Slideshow Outside Vidigami
To share media publicly, within the same Share Set window, the Admin or Manager must select the Share Slideshow Outside Vidigami checkbox, prompting them to accept the End User Agreement.
This will generate a new HTML link to Share Slideshow Outside Vidigami.
When opened in a browser or clicked from a shared post, all content within the Group Set will be displayed as a secure, dynamic slideshow that is viewable by anyone outside the Vidigami community, while restricting the download of any displayed content.
- Embed Slideshow
By selecting the Show Embed Code icon adjacent to the social media sharing options within the same Share Set window, Vidigami will generate an additional Embed Slideshow code that can be inserted into any iframe code block.
This is used for embedding slideshows to web pages, blog posts, digital signage software, and other platforms.
This is how your slideshow will appear when the Share Link is selected, or, when embedded on a page.
Access to Group Sets via Portfolio
In any given user’s Portfolio page, there is now a new tab specifically for all the Group Sets the user has access to as an admin or a manager. Simply navigate to your profile image to access your Portfolio, then select the Group Sets Tab. See Portfolio.
This space is intended as a shortcut, so you can easily navigate to all Groups Sets that you have the permission to manage. Form here you can easily update any Group Set.
