Messaging can help maintain project momentum and help you guide contributors to submit great content. You might want to send inspiration, remind them of a deadline, request something different, and more. Here's how you do it.
Go to the 'Contributors' tab and click the envelope icon. To message everyone, choose 'Select all' (top-right of the image, where it says 'Clear selection'). A green message icon will appear - click it to write a new message. You can also manually select individuals you want to message by clicking the letter icon beside their name - select more than one individual at a time, if you like.
Are there people who have joined your project but are yet to upload anything? You can remind them to get involved or see if they need any help by using the filter and selecting 'Not contributed', as in the image below.
Messaging someone about a specific clip
Messaging via an upload on the Footage page attaches that clip to your message, so the contributor can see what you're referring to. You might want to ask for more of the same, or ask them to refilm for quality reasons. To do this, hit 'Message' next to an expanded clip.
