If you want to make your interactions clickable, you can add an action type to them. Learn what action types are possible and view examples for inspiration.

Action types

With most interactions you can choose to add one of the following action types:

Jump to a specific time in the video

This action type works with a timestamp. Fill in the desired time for your video to continue.

Jump to a specific time in the video - Scheduled

This works the same as the previous action type, except that the clicked interaction jumps on a scheduled moment.

Jump to start of video

When a viewer clicks on an interaction with this action type, the video will directly jump to the beginning of the video

Jump to end of video

This action type will make the video jump directly to the end.

Jump to interaction

After selecting this action type you can choose between the other interactions in your video. If a user clicks, the video will jump to this other interaction.

Hyperlink

With this action type you can link to any online content, such as a website or an online pdf file. Just add the URL. If the viewer clicks on an interaction with this action type, the URL will open in another tab.

Show score screen

By clicking on an interaction with this action type, the viewer can inspect their results on the questions they've already answered.
