The Library is made up of a set of folders. Folders can have subfolders and content. Each content piece should be assigned to a Group or multiple Groups and only Users in the selected Groups will have visibility to the content. Also, Users only see the Folders in the Library that have content assigned to the Groups they belong to. 


Your folder structure should be set up with the Partner in mind, with the content segmented in a way that will make it easy for Partners to find. Consider grouping your content by content type, product, solution, or category.

Uploading Videos


You can upload videos to the Library using the "New File" or "New Video" options. 

  • New File: The video will not play in Channeltivity, and to view the video, Users will have to download it to their computer and view it in an external media player.
  • New Video: Users will be able to view the video in Channeltivity, and you can give them the option to download it by enabling the "Allow non-Admin Users to download this video" functionality when uploading the video. This functionality becomes available when you upload one of the following file types: MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV, and MKV. Videos uploaded using the YouTube/Vimeo option will play in the portal, but Users won't be able to download them.
