Last updated on June 7, 2024


Open the Index menu

  1. Log in to YuJa using your MSUD SSO (single sign-on option).
  2. Select the Video you would like to add indexes to. 
  3. Hover your Cursor over the video.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Click the Advanced Mode toggle button on the right side of the screen. 
  6. Click the List Icon (three horizontal lines) in the lower right corner.

Add, Edit, and Delete Indexes

  1. Click and drag the Playhead where you would like to place an index.
    • Note: The index time will automatically show in the Add Index button in the menu on the right. You can play the video and add indexes as it progresses.
  2. Click the Add Index button in the menu on the right. 
  3. Type a Title for your index.
  4. Select the Left Drop-Down Menu to bold your Index title.
  5. Select the Right Drop-Down Menu to indent or double-indent your Index title.
  6. Click the right or left arrows to navigate between your indexes.
    • Note: If you would like to delete an index, click the Trash Can icon. When asked if you are sure if you would like to delete the index, click Yes
  7. Click the Save button at the top of the screen when you are finished. 
  8. Select one of the following to save your video:
  • Replace Existing Video: This option will overwrite your video and you will not be left with a copy of the original.
  • Save as New Video: This option will make a copy of the video with your indexes and/or other edits and leave the original video unaffected. This option will create a new URL and embed code for the video as well, so if you decide to put indexes on a video already in a course they will not show up unless you replace the embed code with the newer version or use the Replace Existing Video Option.
