The easiest way to comment: While watching the video, you can start posting your comments in the comment box. The video will automatically pause while you are typing and automatically resume after you press enter to post comments. Your comments are time coded to the video so the person in the video can easily see the exact time in the video when you posted the comment.

 


You can Edit or Delete any comments you posted.



Once you've finished watching and commenting on the video, scroll down the web page:

  • On the left side of the screen, you can evaluate the user's performance based on a rubric
  • On the right side of the screen, type an overall text comment on the assignment and click Post 

Important: you are required to post the typed or video overall comments to trigger an automatic email notification to the user informing them the assignment has been reviewed by you.



To view the next submitted video assignments, directly click next video at the top-right corner of the web page.


To continue commenting on the next user's video assignments, directly click the next user's name at the top-center position of the web page.


Upon receiving the email notification, the users will view your comments. They can easily see your time-coded comments as caption at the bottom of the video. 

 


The users may reply to your comments if they need clarification or have questions. You can log back into your online dashboard anytime to view and answer their questions! Look specifically for the comments you posted that have replies.

 


Finally, if you are not satisfied with the assignment quality and would like the user to re-submit a better video, you can log into PitchVantage online dashboard > click Reports on top > Select the corresponding License Set # > click View under Assignments column > Find the assignment that you want re-submitted and click the Unlink icon under Action column.
