How do I set permissions for a Panopto recording? (Staff)

To set permissions on individual recordings login into Panopto, or,, with Sign in with Blackboard using your AU username and password, and select:

  • Manage Recordings (on the bar at the top of the screen)

  • Manage My Recordings
  • Find the folder (there should be a list of folders down the left-hand side of the screen) and recording and hover your cursor under the file name to see the available options:
  • Copy the link/embed code to circulate the recording

Note: Recordings also inherit the permissions from the folder they sit in.  See faq 2261 for further information.
