The product team at Vosaic is excited to tell you about our newest feature, toggle buttons. To understand the benefit of toggle buttons, we’ll outline the problem they solve.
It can be difficult when doing video analysis to know how long a moment will last, to properly mark it. Our standard buttons help you mark the approximate length of the moment, but isn't always precise when moments are longer or shorter than the button length.
Toggle buttons help solve this issue. Toggle buttons allow you mark the beginning of the moment when pressed once and mark the end of the moment when pressed a second time.
How to Get Started With Toggle Buttons
You can create new buttons or make any existing button a toggle button. When creating or editing a button, simply check the box marked Use as a Toggle Button. This will remove the inputs for lead and lag time, since you will mark the length of the moment using the toggle feature.
Toggle buttons can be easily identified on your form as the buttons with rounded edges. If you change the button back to a standard button, it will recover its sharp edges.
It’s important to know that if you are using toggle buttons regularly, you can make them part of a Form. Any video using that Form would change to a toggle button.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make all my buttons toggle buttons?
Yes, you can make all buttons toggle buttons. Remember to finish toggling each moment to save it.
Can I use two or more toggle buttons at the same time?
Absolutely. Just like with standard buttons, two or more can be active simultaneously.
When is the moment saved?
The moment is not saved until the toggling button stops toggling. If you navigate away from a video while a toggle button was active, the moment will not be saved.
Is there a button or hotkey I can press to stop toggling all toggle buttons?
Not yet. This feature exists in Studiocode, which will stop toggling all buttons when you press the Tab key, but that key is used by browsers for navigation.
