Lesson 4: Comments
Add a Comment
Below the video player, click Type a new comment. Add your comment and select Post Comment, or just hit enter. It’ll then appear on the video with a timestamp below, and a red marker will be added at the bottom of the video player.
Tag a Team Member
Tag any of your players or coaches by first name (e.g., @allison), or even a group of people (e.g., @liberos, @coaches). They’ll receive a notification and can jump straight to that point in the video.
Note: If you type the @ symbol and the person’s name doesn’t appear in the drop-down, it’s probably because they haven’t created their Volleymetrics account.Comments are private to your team and every team member can see them. Even tagged comments will be visible for everyone, but only those tagged will receive a notification.
Respond to a Comment
When you see a comment you want to reply to, click Reply to This Comment. Enter your response and hit Reply. If you want a comment notification to be sent, be sure to tag the person you want to be notified.
Tips & Tricks
A lot of coaches use comments to identify moments they want to share with their team. Here’s how:
- Comment on a video before your film review session, then use the red triangles to jump to that point in the video.
- Tag players or groups of players to tell them what moments to watch.
- Take it a step further and dedicate an account to use only for video review. Tag this account any time you see a moment that you or your coaches want to show your team. When it comes time for your film review session, log into that account and go through the notifications.
