3. Activity Panel

The activity panel located on the right hand side of the video player shows interactions and activities on the video. The users, activity, and video / timeline views are specific to the conversation, while the notifications view can apply to multiple conversations.

Panel Transitions

The activity panel can transition to multiple view modes:

  • Minimized View – minimized view of the activity panel
  • Expanded View – expanded view of the activity panel
  • Full View – full screen view of the activities in the video (also accessible via the List View button in the touch bar)

Panel Activities

Activity panel can be toggled between different views of activities.

  • Activity Toggle – toggles between the activity views below:
    • Video View / Timeline – view of time-synced comments and reactions in the video timeline (default view)
    • Activity View – view of the activity happening in realtime within the video
    • Users View – view who has watched the video and who is currently online
    • Notifications – view notifications across all the videos you have watched
  • Activity Summary – summary of the activity view that has been selected

Activity View

Below represent different Activity Views that can be toggled in the activity panel. Click on the ellipses to open up the list of views.

CTA Indicator Box

If the conversation has CTAs, there will be a colored CTA box at the bottom of the activity panel. It will remain there until the video reaches the next CTA – if there is another.

Again, the color of the slightly opaque box as well as the icon indicate what type of CTA. (Refer to the guide above, under the Video Progress Bar section.) If the circle around the icon is red, it is a mandatory CTA. The purple CTA box in the image above reads: At the 50-second mark, there is a mandatory Discussion Call-to-Action titled “Innovating for the future.” There have been 6 responses to this CTA and it is the 1st of 2 CTAs in this conversation.
