For small business and enterprise - it would be helpful if Vimeo offered multi-user accounts to see who's posting what and who has authorization to delete or change descriptions, etc

I have three freelancers that post to my account and have credentials - and possibly more to come. And I'm sure a good handful of other Vimeoians do too. Any one of those freelancers could make a mistake or go off the deep end and mess with the videos on my account (see recent YouTube hacks on Microsoft and PBS YT accounts)

This has been our original thinking we had in mind for Vimeo PRO as well and we hope to add true multi-user and more collaborative tools in future releases.

I am currently looking to purchase a Pro account for our university course. We would like to have an account that would allow students to upload their works to the account. (We are talking about 100+ students). Is there a way to do this?

As stated above, it's something we might add in the future but this is not possible right now.

Can you recommend an alternative way to acheive something similar? For example, if each student has a vimeo account, would I set up a group or a channel that links up all their works? Thanks.

Yes, you can create and maintain a group where only people (among registered vimeo users) you want are allowed to join.

Amazing that this kind of pretty basic thing is not available in Vimeo. I find this very stupid and it will completely ruin the basic idea of having PRO with multiple admins adding and controlling the site.

Soxiam

Soxiam Staff

Hi. I'm just curious. Do you know of many services in our space that offer this? If so, could you list them?

Coptermedia

Coptermedia

I dont know what you mean, but basically every single service that has to do with blogs, chats, website, webshops or anything that is commercially important for business does have multi user platform, either for free or by updating the account. I wouldnt expect one of the most professional services, lacking this.

You know why businesses prefare to use Vimeo today instead of YouTube? Mainly because Vimeo users are more demanding and Vimeo`s public profile is more professional and clean. That why we would use it also - to get our message out clean and pure.

I updated my profile to PLUS and now to PRO because I was 100% sure that if you offer Vimeo PRO mainly for businesses that pay for it and uses it as business tool, you certainly would have multi user feature. But no - to say the least, I was really disappointed and now I have to possibly change my email address to general one like INFO@RIDICULOUS.COM, open an alias account for it and generate a internal company password for those who update our profile.

There is fortunately an option for this as well. We dont have to use Vimeo, if you see this kind of feature something that is difficult to establish, I believe you are not listening to your clients - simple as that.

And btw, check the messages above - there are dozens of users demanding the same. Maybe you should listen?

Soxiam

Soxiam Staff

My question was in response to your comment that you think this is "kind of pretty basic" and that you were surprised to see it not available on vimeo. I was wondering if you saw this type of accounts on other services out there in video sharing space.

Benjamin Harrison

Benjamin Harrison PRO

I don't want to put words in Coptermedia's mouth, but I think what is meant is that when you call a version of a product the enterprise or business version, there is a reasonable assumption that multiple users can log into the product. After all, the one-woman-business or one-man-enterprise is probably the least common type of business and not a very sensible model to take as your default. Most businesses have multiple employees and sharing passwords hasn't been a recommended approach since . . . well, ever. Nor is it likely that a business is going to hire someone just to be the "Vimeo Guy." And what if the Vimeo Guy gets sick? Or takes a holiday? Without multi-user functionality, an application cannot really call itself "enterprise ready" or for "business" use. That's misleading.

Wow, pretty amazing. I registered for the Pro version a few weeks ago and I am pretty surprised not to find some of the very expected now days functionality from this product: uploading to albums on mobile or this multi user feature. Plus attitude from support. LOL. Looking for other options to switch from it.

I work for a very large University and we are currently evaluating solutions to host video across a number of campuses and departments. I am a big fan of Vimeo but it is not reasonable for every department to have their own Vimeo account (mostly because they don't have the support people in place). It makes much more sense to have one enterprise account for the entire University which which individual department admins could control their own video. Currently, companies like Kaltura and Wistia are leading the way in this effort (to offer some specific name). Your pricing model, quality and functionality are a step above the competition but administrative flexibility is holding you back a bit from leading the pack. I would be eager to talk through this with any of your Biz Dev folks (Laura, Gregg, other?) but I can't seem to get a response through the traditional routes ().

I am looking for the same multi-user feature, as stated in the original post, in my Pro account as well. We have several people that need to post videos to the account and I would like to be able to control who can get and who can't. It would also be nice to track who posted what and made settings changes to the videos.
Do you have an update on when the feature will be available?

Pleaaaaase Vimeo- show us all why we trust you being the leading platform for video uploads and distribution-please don´t get behind but put the standards as high as you have done previously.
Add multi user accounts- with different administrative roles. This is without a doubt the future-
and don´t let Kaltura take the gold medal. I have a feeling that you will soon break the sound barrier with this feature- and hit bulls eye- that would truly be a dream come true and open up for many thousands new sites and possibilities.
Make us proud Vimeo users:)

As an IT manager and someone who works in IT security, I was shocked that I have to have a shared account for your "pro" offering. It's frankly incredibly flaky and amateurish (vimeo-ama?) and I'm very disappointed by this. We'll make do, but please get this online asap. It's just a bad idea (terminated employees, changing the account and resharing with everyone etc).

Okay, I admit, I purchased the PRO option without checking the features... caveat emptor.

That said, I too need a site where my students can upload rough-cuts and we as a group can offer comments and suggestions. I purchased PRO because of the 50 gig limit but I'll start checking with my IT service at the University and perhaps find an in-house solution.

I'd be very interested in continuing the conversation with my academic colleagues who have commented here. roy.cross@concordia.ca

We also need this feature for our training videos. To answer Soxiam's question, our cloud-based municipal fiscal distress database permits multiple admin accounts for the same municipality or school district. We even delegate the management of these accounts to state-level professional associations at each state. We switched from YouTube because Vimeo permits replacing an existing video with a newer version. Having multiple admin accounts, or an account to permit uploads, would be the final "nice-to-have" feature. We will still use Vimeo without it but I don't like handing out my login.

Hi Soxiam.
I can imagine how annoying such a thread like this one must be, but is there any info you can provide us with in terms of the above mentioned features?
We are a Danish company that creates classical music videos to more than 90 countries and we have spent months with Kaltura- but had to give it up- unfortunately- they were not there yet.
Would it be possible to provide us with any kind of information that could calm us down :) or to make us cry...:(
Thanks a lot and appreciate your patience:)
best regards, Adam.

We were so desperate for this functionality that we wrote a website with the vimeo api's to do the uploads for us. We then password protected that website per user and that accomplished the same thing. However, we are still pretty disappointed that Vimeo didn't offer this out of the box.

Is there any type of widget that would allow users to upload videos to a portfolio that is password protected? I know this is a similar request, but might be an easier angle to accomplish allowing user generated content on a specific page.

We of course appreciate the suggestions from our community, but we do not implement something just because it's a popular opinion.

We have to choose what makes sense to build from a user experience, financial, and technical perspective. That being said, Sox did mention that this was something we were considering for a future iteration of PRO, but I cannot say if it will be part of our upcoming revamp.

I personally think it makes sense to have something like this, but there's a lot of work around making that happen.

I have purchased VimeoPro for our organization and have had really good success with it... now another part of my company want to use it for their hosting. I was disappointed when I found this service is still not supported so I may create separate user account and passwords for other users in my company.

Brightcove (a competitor of sorts to vimeo) offers this functionality.... Hope to see multiuser accounts on Vimeo.
I think the way to do it would be by attaching the admins to Channels. The flow would be: I create a channel -> i give access to my employees/other people to that channel -> employees can login and manage the channel too. Ideally you would have some level of user access policy too (user per channel).

I was hoping for multi-user uploading also. Our situation is we are one small company, but 3 or 4 people will be uploading video for different clients. After finding this wasn't possible, I was hoping to use the Channel or Groups functionality, but since all of our videos are Private, this doesn't appear to be possible.

App Data Room LLC

YouTube offers this as part of Google Apps for business. How can I convince my organization that we should keep paying extra for a Vimeo account that we have to pass around a ratty, mustard stained post-it note with a password scrawled on it when we get a much better user management experience in YouTube included with our Google Apps account? The only reason this thread doesn't have ten thousand replies is that any enterprise customer looked into using Vimeo, realized that they were missing a very basic security component, and moved along to the next competitor.

Every time an employee leaves the company, I have to remember to change the vimeo password and then go notify every single existing employee of the new password to prevent unauthorized access to the PAID vimeo account. That means every time there is turnover, I think about looking around to see what else is out there, or at the very least, I get real grumpy about using Vimeo and am not likely at all to recommend it.

I agree, we are a new user and just started this week with uploading "real" content. (still private because we want to upload first much more in the next couple of weeks 20GB/week).

We started right away with a Pro account but this future request (3 years old), still no chromecast support (in the HTML player) and a very extreme price gap to get more then the Pro account are making us question our selfs.

Is only the differences is quality worth it (for us) to choose Vimeo in stead of YouTube ?

For now we did not make a chose yet and started also to upload all our content to YouTube.

We too need 2nd level of login to account.
Meaning people can enter the account and see all the content (even hided or password protected content) they can only not delete video’s or change names etc.. Only watch, share and upload.
This would be great for working groups in larger organizations, Vimeo could be a collaboration platform for communication departments, or any other larger organization.Now it is managed and shared from one location/person only. Big missed opportunity... Hope to see solution after all these years of this similar demand...
It would get global Cheers !!!!!

Actually we need an extra user for looking on the stats of private videos. Allowing roles with different user rights for enterprise accounts would be the best (editors, admin, stats ...) and is urgently needed. Sharing the password is a "No Go"

I realize this topic has been brought up in the past (a couple years ago) but we really need to get this functionality added to the platform. We are a Pro Subscriber and like many businesses, it's not just a single individual who needs the ability to manage delivery of our corporate video.
Adding multiple emails is not a sufficient workaround because it creates liability. Anyone can delete videos, change the primary password, make videos public, etc.
I urge Vimeo to please consider adding this functionality. It would certainly prove most useful and may even result in additional revenue for your organization because I know that many businesses see this functionality as a requirement.
Thanks for you consideration.

Hello there, I see that you guys have added a multi user feature, but I can't figure out how it would work from mobile app. I have 3 users set up as "uploader" on my account, and when they are logged into their accounts on their vimeo app, the videos they upload go to their account and not to our account where they are set up as "uploader". Does this mean that multi user function is only on desktop? Please don't tell me that.
