Show Video Controls
Show/hide the video controls (timestamp, fast forward, and video fit) at the top of your videoask.
By default, videoasks auto-play on mute. Pause auto-play to freeze the video in the first step of your videoask so respondents must push play to see and hear the video.
Oversize the video button
Subtly encourage video recording by increasing the size of the video option or keep all response option buttons the same size.
Note: You can also oversize the Audio option by adding a simple parameter to the end of your URL.
Show videoask title
Show/hide the videoask title on the first step of your videoask.
Note: this option does not work if you've added overlay text.
Button Border Radius
Control the border radius of all filled buttons (except circular confirmation buttons when recording video or audio).
VideoAsk sends your respondents an email notification every time you reply to their submissions. If you would like to use an alternate notification system (such as text messages or another email service via Zapier), you can disable these email notifications for each videoask by disabling the toggle.
⚠️ Important: If you turn this setting off without setting up an alternate notification system via Zapier, your respondents will not be notified when you reply to them.
Find out more about managing your notifications.
You can select the language spoken in your videoasks so that they're more accurately transcribed.
Note: Transcriptions are generated directly after uploading or recording a video to your videoask. If you update the transcription language after adding videos, you will need to re-upload or re-record your videos in order for the chosen language to apply to the transcription.
You can also activate Filter profanities to detect inappropriate language and filter it out of your captions.
You can learn more about editing transcriptions and captions.
