Embedding Media

In certain places where the WYSIWYG appears, you'll find the Embed Media button in the toolbar, towards the right side. Session Templates and Worksheet Templates, Journal Entries, Whiteboards, and messages (after clicking enable formatting towards the bottom) all let you add media from elsewhere. 

Note that email tends to strip out certain video and audio content.

Give the Embed Media button a click and you’ll be presented with a blank space for pasting in the the embed code or URL.

Note the “Caption” field here: this is so that CoachAccountable can give a fallback link to the media for when <iframe> embeds aren’t allowed (most email providers for example strip out HTML <iframes> entirely, so a link with the caption you specify is a nice way to make the Worksheet be more complete in that context).  If you’d rather the system NOT provide a link to the media file outside of CoachAccountable, just leave the caption blank.

Once inserted, the embeddable media shows up in the WYSIWYG just like the rest of the content.
