It is possible to download the media attached to observations from the browser version of Tapestry. This function was developed primarily because it's not possible to export videos at the same time as the rest of the journal in PDF format, but it seems a shame to lose the video clips that you have been adding to the profile when the child leaves your setting/moves up the school.

By default this option is only available for managers on Tapestry, but if you would like parents to be able to access this too (so they can download them straight to their computer) you can turn it on for them by going to your Control Panel > Manage Settings > Options: Relatives, and ticking the box at the bottom which says "Show photo and video download links on observations for relatives". Don't forget to press save when you've selected it!





To download the media, you need to be logged into the browser version of Tapestry and find the observation you want to download the media from, either from the obs tab, or the child's journal. Once you have found it, click on the title to see it in full.




To download the video from the observation you just need to click on the cog button in the top right hand corner and select 'Download Photos and Videos' from the drop down menu.




Once you have clicked on it, a pop up box will appear with thumbnails of each of the media items. To download them, simply click on those thumbnails.




They will then be exported straight to your computer. How you're informed of this will vary depending on your browser, but in any case, they should show up in your 'Downloads' folder on the computer that you're using.

And that's it! Happy weaving!

Best wishes,
