*NEW* Add a Video in Profile

Do your members have video resumés or a video introduction they would like to add to their MentorCity profile? Now you can set up a custom profile field and embed videos to display in profiles.  

Only web videos can be added to profiles, meaning they must have a URL to be posted on a profile. i.e. YouTube videos.
If using a video uploaded from the Cloud, for example Google Drive, make sure the privacy settings are allowing others to view it.

There are three steps to take to post a video on a profile:

  1. Create a Custom Field
  2. Contact Mentor Canada Support Team
  3. Mentors and Mentees Add a Video URL to their Profile

Step 1 - Create a Custom Field

1.0 Click the “Admin” tab on the left-hand side of the platform.

Step 2 - Contact Mentor Canada Support Team

2.0 Now that a custom field has been created, please contact Mentor Canada Support to set up your newly created field for videos.

2.1 Send an email to support@mentoringcanada.ca with the following information:

                      • Program Name
                      • Custom Field Name

 


Step 3 - Mentors/Mentees Add a Video URL to their Profile

Mentors and mentees can start posting videos on their profile once the administrator received a confirmation from the Mentor Canada Support team. The below steps can be followed to post a video on a profile.

3.0 From the dashboard, click on Edit under the profile section. You can also click "Edit Profile" from the drop-down menu on the top-right hand side of the page.

3.2 Add your video URL in the field.

Note: best practice is to copy/paste the URL from the browser directly to avoid any errors and to ensure "https:" is included. If you are not including the "https:" portion of the URL, the video will not be posted.

3.3 Click Save and go to the Employment section to save your modifications.
