Allowed viewers: decide who watches your video

< Back

Curious about our ‘Allowed viewers’ feature?

The feature ‘Allowed viewers’ has two advantages. One, you’ll have complete control over who watches your video, because you’ll upload a file with the names and email addresses of the people who should watch your video.  Two, you will know who has watched your video and how they answered the questions.

Again, you can choose if you’d like to watch our tutorial or read our explanation below.


How to use Allowed viewers
Firstly, go to ‘Video settings’. Then, go to ‘More options’ and click on ‘Allowed Viewers’.

Next, you can download the ‘Allowed viewers template’. You can submit all the names and email addresses of those you want to share your video with. Afterwards, upload the file.

Then, on the right side of your screen, you can download an Excel file that contains the personal URLs for your viewers. You can send these URLs to your audience. This can be done manually, but it’s easier to use a tool that takes this out of your hands, like MailChimp.

On the this same page, you’ll be able to see who has watched your video, if they’ve watched the video until the end and if they passed. And if you see that Dean has 20.000 views, you will know he has sent his personal URL to other people.

Example of Allowed viewers Excel file


Tip: If your audience is too big to create an Excel file with names and e-mailadresses, but still would like to connect names with statistics, we’ve got another solution for you. Click here to read more about the feature ‘Collect viewerdata’.


Tip 2: If you wanted to use Allowed viewers to shield your video, you can also choose the setting ‘Unlisted’. This way, your video is hidden from Google and other search engines. People will also need an url to watch the video. Click here to read more about publishing your video.
