A highlight reel is a curated selection of video clips you've created. Highlight reels can include multiple clips from the same test or clips from multiple tests. You can use highlight reels to show your team common responses and essential feedback from your end users. Highlight reels are a great way to share compelling findings and moments of insight.


Make a new Highlight Reel

Once you have gone through and made clips from an original recording, you can make a highlight reel by selecting Highlight Reels from your UserTesting dashboard.  


This tab will contain all your existing highlight reels and you can create new highlight reels by selecting New Highlight Reel.


Your clips will be listed on the left. Search for clips by tag, keyword, or study title. You can also use the filter to pinpoint the important clips you are looking for. 



Then, drag clips from the left-hand panel to the right-hand panel. Within the right-hand panel, you can drag clips to rearrange them.

For each clip, use the Options menu (three dots) to edit them, download them, or remove them. Removing the clip will move it back to the left-hand panel. Note: Editing a clip's length or annotations will change that clip wherever it is used, including in other highlight reels.



Edit a Highlight Reel

To edit a highlight reel, select Edit from the Options (three dots) menu to the right of the highlight reel you want to edit.


You will land on the same view you saw when creating a new highlight reel. Take the same actions, such as editing the name of the highlight reel, dragging new clips into the right-hand panel, rearranging clips, editing clips, or removing clips from the right-hand panel. Note that highlight reels are saved automatically.


Share a Highlight Reel

Once you've assembled your highlight reel, you can preview or share it via email or link by using the buttons in the top right corner.
