Projects - FAQFAQ
What are projects?
We’ve heard from users for a long time that they want a better way to organize their videos, so we’ve made that happen. Projects work like folders and provide you with a handy way to organize your video content.
Can videos be moved between projects?
Yes. You can create videos inside a project, move videos in and out of projects, and transfer videos from one project to another to keep things organized.
What is shown in "All Videos"?
Copying a video into a projectWhile you can’t copy a video directly into a project, you can make a copy of a video and then move the copy into a different project! To do this, click on the 3 small dots on your video, then select “Make a copy”.
Once the copy has been duplicated, you can click the 3 dots on the copy and then move it into a different project of your choice. More about moving videos here.Few readers

Projects vs. WorkspacesProjects are another layer within workspaces. You still have access to all of your workspaces, but now you can create separate projects within each.
Workspaces can be used to keep uploads, saved templates, and videos separate. Any of these elements that exist in one workspace will not be available in another workspace.
Projects exist within a workspace, and can be used to keep your videos organized. This is helpful if you’re making videos for a brand within one workspace, but you have multipleFew readers
Creating multiple workspacesMultiple workspaces are available for users with a Business or Enterprise plan.
Workspaces are great for categorizing your videos into different buckets and are especially powerful if you're working on a larger team with multiple ongoing campaigns.
