Learn how to assign multiple Authors to a single video

Updated over a week ago

You can assign multiple authors to your individual pieces of video content when editing the video details

How to Assign Multiple Authors to a Video

Simply scroll down to Organize and click the Authors drop-down menu to select the Authors you want to assign.

You can select up to 5 Authors for any one video.

Multiple Authors on the Catalog

When your audience clicks on a video that has multiple Authors assigned to it, they will be able to see all assigned Authors under the video title:

They will be brought to the Author's profile page if they click on an Author.

Author Analytics

For videos tagged with multiple Authors, all Authors who have been tagged will be tracked in the video's views and watch time analytics.

This means that if three Authors are tagged on a video that gets 10 views and 5 hours of watch time, all three Authors will see their views and watch time hours increase by 10 and 5, respectively.

To view your Author analytics in the Admin Area, navigate to the left-hand menu and click Analytics > Content > Authors.

NOTE: Because Multi-Author is not currently supported on apps, views and watch time will only accrue for one Author for videos viewed on apps. The first Author assigned will get credit for the views and watch time.

Where is Multi-Author Supported?

Currently, Multi-Author is only supported for individual pieces of video content on the web, and is not supported for Live Events, Collections, or Bundles, and will not be displayed on apps.

NOTE: Multi-Author is only supported on the newest version of our video catalog. If your store is on an old version of the catalog, multiple Authors will not appear under the video title. Please request an update to the latest catalog update from our Support Team (
