Collection and Series Archiving

We’re making it easier to organize your content and make space for new creations with our latest update. Say goodbye to cluttered collections and hello to streamlined organization.

Archiving Collections

When you no longer need a collection, you can archive it to declutter your workspace. Archiving a collection archives the entire stack of collections, so any sub-collections will also be archived. If you need to access an archived collection, you can quickly unarchive it. This will restore the collection to your channel, complete with the permissions and sub-collections intact.

Archiving Series

Similarly, when a series has run its course, you can archive it to make room for new content. Archiving a series will preserve all of the videos in the series, so you can always unarchive the series if you need to bring it back.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Improved modal performance, transitions, and presentation
  • Adds the ability to select or upload custom thumbnails for Series videos
  • Added Miro, Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and OneNote attachment support
  • Fixed a layout issue on the video page
  • Improved the AI summary prompts UI
  • Improved the reliability of meeting bots
  • Fixed a layout issue on the homepage

Enhancements to AI-generated notes

We've made some big changes to our AI-generated video notes that improve how teams share knowledge, stay up-to-date, and reduce unnecessary busy work. Read on to see how these updates can help your team.

AI-generated recaps & action items

Along with the list of timestamped summary items, we now generate two additional categories of content when your video is uploaded:

  1. Recap paragraph
    A concise, 2 to 4 sentence summary of the recording. Great as a replacement for writing a description, and for sharing with others to quickly get them caught up.
  2. Action items
    A list of tasks and next steps that were discussed or assigned. Super helpful for keeping the team aligned on what happens next.

AI-generated notes interface with new recap and action items section

Note that In some cases – mostly for short videos – recaps and action items aren't automatically generated, you always generate these using the new "Settings" options discussed below.

Improved organization of the summary items

The initial version of our AI summaries worked well, but the quantity of items could be overwhelming, especially when generated for longer meetings.

We've improved this by grouping summary items by topic when the list grows too long. The topic list is organized chronologically, and provides an easy-to-consume synopsis of what happened during the recording. Each topic can be be expanded to reveal more detailed summary items, complete with linked timestamps that make jumping to specific moments in the video a breeze.

Notes settings and actions

Video owners and channel admins can now toggle the visibility of any or all of the AI content sections, which provides more control over what content viewers end up seeing.

When the AI didn't quite get things right, video owners and channel admins can now regenerate each section.

Alongside those actions, all members will see the option to copy a nicely-formatted version of the section to their clipboard for sharing outside Rewatch.

Automated AI Summaries

Automatic AI-powered summaries are now available for all your videos. Now, every recording that’s added to your channel will summarized into a list of key points, each with a link to the moment in the video where it occurred.

We tested this feature internally for a few weeks, and it quickly made a huge impact on how we work together. Here are a few reasons we think you’ll like it too:

  • Forget the tedium of recapping your recording. Stop spending time and energy transcribing your notes and writing comprehensive descriptions before sharing your recording. AI summaries take care of that as soon as the video is ready.
  • Catch up on meetings you didn’t attend. No more wondering what happened during a meeting. Quickly scan the meeting summary to get a quick overview of what transpired, and jump to any moment that you need to see for yourself.
  • Keep track of what happened, even after it happened. Summaries aren’t only useful for immediate recaps, they also provide an easy-to-reference overview for when you need to find that time you talked about that thing.

Summaries will be automatically generated for every new recording you add to Rewatch. You can also generate them for your existing videos by navigating to the video page and clicking the "Generate Summary" button below the description.

Use emojis to react to a video while you watch

Sometimes it feels like it’s too much to post a comment just to say: "nice", "love it", or "great job" — so we end up just not saying anything at all 😢. With emoji reactions you can now immediately express sentiments like these while watching any video on Rewatch with just a click or a tap 👏.

To start, we’ve baked in a handful of reactions for you to use:

  • ❤️ - Great for saying “love it”, expressing solidarity, or thanks
  • 🎉 - Share in a celebration or express your excitement
  • 👏 - Applaud someone's efforts or say "great job”
  • 😆 - Chuckle along with someone or add some levity
  • 🤯 - Share your surprise or stand in awe of someone's work
  • 😢 - Commiserate over a tough moment or loss

When you react, you’re giving a bit of feedback, acknowledgement, and energy to whoever’s taken the time to share with you via video — that can mean a lot. That’s why in Rewatch, reactions don’t just sit there for nobody to see, they’re actually delivered to the recipient as positive vibes that animate for them to enjoy.

So the next time you’re feeling happy, excited, thankful, or anything else when watching a video, be sure to share a reaction — you'll brighten someone’s day!

Share portions of your video with clips

Today we are introducing Clips, a new tool for sharing and organizing your video content. With clips, you can select specific moments from your video in order to share with others, initiate a side conversation, or add to a collection.

Want to share a portion of a private meeting with your team? Need to discuss a moment with only a few members of your channel? It’s now possible. And, the actions you take on the clip – publishing, commenting, even deleting – won’t affect the original video.

Here are a few ways we’ve been using clips at Rewatch:

Share a moment, and keep everything else private. There are times when a private video includes a moment that would be nice to share with others. Now you can create a clip to share with the team, while still keeping the rest of the video private.

Focus the conversation. For moments that require deeper discussion, using a clip can be an effective way to foster a focused, in-depth conversation. This works great when a team needs to collaborate on a single idea or topic, as well as way of providing targeted feedback on a sales call or customer interview.

Compile a topical video repository. Clips are a great tool for building a curated, topic-based collection of content. Whether it's customer success stories, sales calls strategies, or anything else, clips let you isolate relevant moments to keep your collection focused and easy to navigate.

Learn more about using Clips in our help center.

Desktop Camera Recorder

We have added the ability to record via your device's camera using our Mac and Windows desktop recorders. This change makes it easier than ever to create quick video updates and messages on Rewatch. This is especially handy if your team is using a Series to replace stand-ups and other repetitive status meetings.

As always, you can also use the desktop app to record your screen, create a quick canvas presentation, or record a GIF. Download the Rewatch desktop app today!

Images in Comment Threads

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. If so, consider this another way Rewatch is helping to save your team time: it's now possible to add images – even GIFs! – in comments. This is something that we've wanted for a while, and we're happy to say goodbye to the days of halting a thread once it requires something visual.
