How to: Request a how-to video

How-to videos are step by step tutorials that walk the viewer through a task or journey. They are especially useful with tasks that are complex or that have a lot of visual functionality. You may need a how-to video created if you have had several requests for guidance on a task, topic or journey. You may also need a how-to video if you or your colleagues require more guidance on a topic.

Do you need a how-to video? First check:

  • Does it already exist?
  • Is it an update to an existing video?
  • What category would it fit into?
  • What live functionality is it awaiting?
  • Is it ‘big’ enough to warrant a video? (Can it be combined with another task?)
  • Could it be a written guide? (if there is not much visual functionality)
  • Is it needed? (e.g. have you had several requests for guidance on this topic?)

To request a video please provide the following as a reply to this topic:
