How does the process work?

Getting Started

You can start a video by answering a few questions:

  • What's the occasion? 
  • Who's it for? 
  • Is there an occasion date?

This creates an Event Page that will be used to collect media. Only you — the video creator — can access this Event Page.

Here's a great introduction video to get you started on the right path!

What makes a VidDay so unique is seeing video message submissions from all your friends and family! So lets start by inviting them!

Inviting People to Submit

You'll want to click on the Invitation button at the top of the event page. From here you can customize the invitation message as well as invite your particpants. You'll see your unique event link at the top of this page, along with social sharing links and our Invite List feature.

Either copy the link itself and send it off or use any of the social media buttons to open the link directly within the app on your device. The Event Page link is a submission page for people to upload media. Invited people can not preview other submissions, they can only upload.

As media gets uploaded, you will be able to see and preview them on the Media Gallery when you're logged in to your VidDay account.

Personalizing the Video

You can edit submitted media if needed by double clicking on them, click-and-drag them in your order of preference and add little written messages throughout the video if you want.

You can also choose a video theme and background music that you think the recipient would like the most.

If you want to see your video prior to finalizing. Press on Preview. To start a preview, click on Make a Preview. Previews typically take 5-30 minutes to finalize and we'll email you when it's ready to go! 

Finalizing the Video

Click the Finalize button, followed by Checkout & Finalize, make your payment, and VidDay creates a beautiful video for you. It's that easy.

The time it takes to finalize a video depends on its length. When your video is ready, you’ll be notified by email, and the final video will appear on the Event Page.

Sharing the Video

You can share the video by sharing the link. Click here for a deeper dive about sharing the video.
