Being organized saves you time and frustration. That is why we created a user friendly video library so you have easy access to every video, no matter when or by whom it was recorded. You no longer need to scroll through your phone's camera roll, full of personal photos and videos to find what you're looking for. In fact, we've made the library searchable, so scrolling through hundreds of images and videos is nearly obsolete. Give your thumbs a rest!
The OnForm video library is where all your videos that you've captured or that have been shared to you by a client are all located in one single place. By default, if you record a new video in the library, it's private and only you can see it. You can long-press any video and share it to a client at any time. We provide quick filters to show all videos that are simply "Private to me" as well as an "All videos" option to see everything.
Videos are automatically synced to the cloud and across all of your devices eliminating the need for manual storage management. Space on your device is smartly managed to always give you room to record as many videos as you need.
Labeling and Searching Videos
OnForm has made searching for specific videos easier than ever. All videos that are shared between athlete and coach or are private to the user, are organized chronologically with the newest videos at the top. For improved searching, we recommend that you title your videos with brief descriptions. Anytime you need to find it, just type the key words you're looking for into the search bar at the top of the library page.
Below we show you how to title and search for your videos in the OnForm app.
OnForm makes it easy to share the videos you've taken with other people using OnForm. You can easily share a video privately, or to an "everyone" channel for a team that you might manage. Or, if you choose to "share externally" via email, text or perhaps to social media, as shown in the image below, you'll be promoted with those options as well.
At the core of the OnForm design, is the ability to model real-life coaching relationships. Through many years of experience, our approach was to ensure that both teams and individuals can be easily supported in our app.
When you create a new team in OnForm, you're creating a workspace and then adding team members to it. Those team members might be athletes, parents, coaches or assistant coaches. All text messages and videos are then part of the workspace. As players may come and go or coaches change, the workspace will remain constant, keeping your videos and messages all in one place.
Individuals work the same way, but instead of a "team name" it's simply the main individuals' name that is used for the workspace name. If you are a golf instructor and have a client, "Jane Smith", the workspace will be named "Jane Smith". This way, all communication of chat messages and videos are part of "Jane's" workspace.
We've learned that even though you might be working with an individual client, they often have multiple coaches interested in keeping tabs on the athlete, so even for individual workspaces we allow multiple support team members to join. In addition to the primary coach that is connected to the workspace, there might also be others, like a nutritionist, physiotherapist, mental coach or skills coach as well.
The model is very flexible and allows for both large teams with lots of players, assistant coaches and even parents as well as 1:1 relationships with a single coach-athlete.
