Panopto’s retention policies have recently undergone a revision. Adjusting to new contact terms from Panopto, BC will soon be changing its terms for retention and archiving.
Before videos are deleted, they will be archived for a brief period. Archived videos do not immediately appear in the Panopto section of your Canvas course. You can, however, restore archived videos. It’s possible to restore individual videos or a batch of videos (if, for example, you are restoring all of the videos for a particular course). Instructions for both processes can be found below.
To permanently preserve videos, move them to your personal folder.
Restoring Individual Videos
Navigate to the Panopto section of the relevant Canvas course.
Click on the archived videos button to view the archived videos in that folder.
Archived videos have a washed out thumbnail. Hovering over the video causes a single “Restore from Archive” button to appear. Selecting “Restore from Archive” retrieves the video.
You will receive an email when the content is restored. Restored videos will appear in the Panopto section of the course.
Batch Restoring Videos
It is also possible to restore a batch of videos (e.g. all of the archived videos from one course).
Go to the Panopto section of the relevant Canvas course and select the “Open in Panopto” icon.
Select the “Archived” button to view all of the videos archived in that course folder.
Select the videos you want to restore by clicking on the check boxes in the upper left corner of their thumbnails.
After selecting all of the videos you want to restore , click on the “Restore” button that appears in the menu above the thumbnails .
