Video/Audio Transcription & Search
With Video/Audio Transcription, SalesHood transcribes all video and audio into text. The transcription of voice/audio into text makes key points searchable, accelerating the discovery and learning process for users. We transcribe all video types (Deal Wins, Pitches, Huddle videos, video files, etc.) uploaded by all users (Publishers, Coaches, Managers, Individuals).

For example, if you want to learn about how your colleagues handle competition discussions, search all video content where the keyword “competition” is mentioned and skip to the exact segment(s) of each video that keyword is mentioned using the transcription window. See the photo below for an overview of how it works:

Using the Transcription Window, quickly and easily skip to each segment where your keyword is mentioned. Timestamps display the transcribed text, with your keyword highlighted in yellow. By clicking the timestamp, the video skips to the corresponding video segment.

Learning Path visibility for Hosts on web and mobile
Learning Path Hosts monitor learning paths without leaving the Home Page on web and mobile. The Learning Path is displayed on the Featured tab, broken down into sections, with an at-a-glance view of completion percentage among Learning Path Participants.  

Ability to designate certain huddle modules as optional
Modules in a huddle are sometime relevant but not necessary for all participants. Huddle hosts can designate certain modules as optional. If participants don’t finish optional modules, it won’t be reflected in their completion percentage.

UI Improvements
The Admin and Reports page will have a much cleaner experience. Column headers will float on the screen as you scroll down the page, allowing for painless visibility into Learning Path statistics. We also made aesthetic improvements to our exercise modules making them more inviting and engaging.
