Caption Request Approval

Original Post

So I would like to give Faculty the ability to request Captioning on their videos in Panopto but not actually send it to the 3rd party captioning comPlpany without admin approval first. This would allow us to make sure what they are requesting captions for is within our budget and that we want it to be captioned. Right now it's all or nothing so we only allow admins to request captions and our users have to fill out a form letting us know what they want captioned.

We would like to see this too. Being able to view the requests from the admin Caption Request Queue and having an admin being able to approve would make our workflow easier and allow us to better monitor the captioning budget.

You should be able to do this through your third-party captioning provider; for example, we use 3Play and only specific people can push out requests for captioning. We just ask instructors to send us an email with the request.

Jon - Great feedback! We've filed this internally.
