How to Create a “Working Folder” in Panopto
Today we are going to discuss how to create a Panopto “Working Folder” within your Canvas course. This is a feature that allows you as the instructor to have a convenient location to store and edit videos. This “Working Folder” could be a place to edit or review your videos before showing them to students, to act as a video “repository”, or to share with co-teachers but not students.
Begin by entering your Canvas course, and accessing your Panopto Recordings, located within the left-hand navigation bar.
Once you have clicked Panopto Recordings, look near the top of the page for the “Add Folder” button, and click it. Type a name for the folder and hit Enter on your keyboard.
Note: You may name the folder anything you choose, we are using “Working Folder” for the purposes of this guide.
Once created, click on the new Working Folder to enter.
From here, navigate to the top right and click the “People” icon to access the shared settings.
On the “Shared” tab, you will be able to change the permissions of the folder.
Click the drop-down arrow under “Who has access”, then from the available options select “Specific People”.
Click the “X” next to the “Can View” group to remove student access
Make sure to click “Save changes” at the bottom before exiting.
