An Assignment Folder (referred to 'Drop Box' in the previous version) is a subfolder that shares its user list with its parent folder but gives the users some additional privileges. Assignment folders enable Viewer users in their parent folder to create and manage their own content while preventing them from viewing other users' content that has not been explicitly shared or made public.
How Do I share are folder?
Click on the drop down menu Who has access provides you with the following options:
From the Share Page - select one of the following options:
You can create a link that is accessible to the public and decide whether it is browsable or not:
2. Under Who has access - select one of the following:
Anyone with the link - allows a shareable link, but keeps the video unlisted and unbrowsable
Public on the web - shareable link, but is able to be found by anyone on the internet
1. Under the Panopto Share settings for the session locate Invite People
2. Enter the e-mail address of selected recipients. These users will receive an invite e-mail with the link to your video.
**Note: This sends the user a URL with a token appended to it, not a unique username/password. Any one with access to this link can view the session until the user's email address is removed from the share**

Panopto allows you to merge any two sessions together. This is often necessary when recordings are made using two different computers to capture Audio and Video, PowerPoint, and Screen Capture, but the recordings are not recorded in the same session. This is referred to as a Separated Recording. To combine a Separated Recording, follow this documentation.
Note: Separated Recordings can be avoided when multiple computers are set to record to the same session prior to recording. This can be done by establishing the session on one computer and choosing that same session from the drop down of available Folders and sessions on subsequent clients. Naming the sessions the same will not achieve this, you must select the session from the list.
1.1. Go to your Panopto website and log in with an account that has access to the Folder where the content has been recorded.
1.2. Once you have found the Folder, hover over the first session to reveal the Settings icon (See Figure 1).
1.3. On the Settings page, click Manage (Fig. 2).
1.4. The first drop down selection box allows you to select the Folder where the other piece of the session is located. The second drop down selection box is where you would select the other session name that you want to merge this recording with (Fig. 3).
1.5. After you have selected the Folder and session to merge with, click the Merge button. The session will re-encode and be synchronized as one recording (Fig. 4).
2.1. Copying can be a useful way to move a session to a new or additional folder while preserving the original session location.
2.2. Go to your Panopto website and log in with an account that has access to the Folder containing the session to Copy.
2.3. Once you have found the Folder, hover over the session to reveal the Settings icon (Fig.5).
2.4. Click Manage and locate the Copy session section, simply name your new session and click copy (Fig. 6).
1.4. On the outputs page, scroll down to the Video Podcast section of this tab. Click on the top drop-down menu and select the desired output (Fig. 4).
Note: There is a server setting, PodcastSlideDisplayIntervalSeconds and it is a setting that controls how long a PowerPoint slide can remain inactive until the view will revert back to the primary feed. The default setting for this is 60.
You can also set the default podcast type globally on your system settings page using the DefaultPodcastType. All new podcasts will be generated using this format.
576p | 30fps | 1400-2800kbps video | 100kbps audio
720p | 30fps | 1400-2800kbps video | 135kbps audio
1080p | 30fps | 2000-4000kbps video | 135kbps audio
1080p | 60fps | 2500-5000kbps video | 135kbps audio
Note: We strive to achieve the specified podcast output quality, however certain variables can cause you to receive results which differ slightly. For example, if the original content is of lower resolution than the desired result, we do not up-convert as this will actually reduce the quality of the resulting podcast. While you may have told Panopto to output a podcast at 1080p, because the source content is of lower resolution, the resulting podcast will be less than 1080p.
3.2. Click the Change button (Fig. 6).
3.3. Wait for the session to re-encode podcasts. This time will vary depending on your server and session length.
3.4. View or Download your mp4 file (Fig. 7).
If you try to delete a folder and it seems to let you press the Delete button but the folder isn’t removed, check your permissions on that course. You cannot delete a folder if you are a Viewer. You will need have Creator permission to delete the folder. Once you have Creator permission take these steps to delete a folder.
You will be prompted with this dialog box to confirm that you want to delete the folder and all of it's content. Select OK.
Your folder will be deleted.
Note: If you want to preserve the recordings in the folder you can move them to another folder before you delete the folder.
