Vouch allows for users to define a Cover Video for any new Request created within the Platform.

The Cover Video will be displayed to the Responder in the very first screen and plays an important role in both building confidence and context with them. The video can be shown in conjunction with a Cover Message, or instead of.

The Cover Video can be defined on a per Request basis, or a default Cover Message can be set under Settings > Cover video & message

The following guide outlines how a Cover Video can be added to your Request.
