CloudApp’s Joe Martin on how video helps align teams from wherever they are
Joe Martin of CloudApp recently joined Ally for a webinar on how to align and inspire teams from wherever you’re working. Here are some takeaways from what he had to say.
Joe Martin, the VP of marketing at CloudApp, says remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic is far from any remote experience he’s ever had.
That being said, Martin and his team are making adjustments to the business to make the remote work shift a little easier.
Martin says asynchronous work is a huge part of successfully working remotely in his experience.
“Two years ago I started managing resources in India...living in Utah, India is exactly 12 hours ahead, so no one was ever happy on a phone call,” Martin says.
Before even working at CloudApp, Martin discovered the tool as a way to help asynchronous work.
CloudApp is an instant video and image sharing platform. Its screen recording software can capture and embed video, screen recordings and more.
The tool allows teams to save time by sharing quick, visual assets instead of scheduling meetings for every need.
“We would still try to meet in real time every other week, but we could record videos, record our screens and mark up presentations...was really a great connecting point.”
What’s a Rich Text element?
Heading 3 Link
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
