How is Vidigami V3 different than V2?

V2 V3


V2 App installed from AppStore V3 Progressive Web App installed from Mobile browser

The V2 app does not support access to V3 so please uninstall the V2 app.  Then install the V3 app from Safari (iOS),  and Chrome(Android), and optionally on computers using Chrome. A prompt will appear to direct users to add the Vidigami app to their mobile desktop.  There is no need to download from the AppStore.

School Organization

A School is often more than a single campus. V3 regards a school as an organization.  Schools now have the ability to add multiple organizations, each may have its own identity including branding, users, roles, and permissions under one Organization.  Examples of ways schools might use this structure include creating different organizations.  This includes the ability to support Alumni, Summer School, upper school / lower school, and different campuses.

Group Directory Explore Tab

Explore is the school’s media library where content is organized into Categories and media is shared into Pages.  Users can sort by Recently Updated or Alphabetical. Users can also select Favorite Pages by clicking on the stars to quickly view media on the Pages that are important to them.

Category Category

Category represents the structure of your school.  In V2, we were limited to 7 Categories which could not cannot be re-named.  In V3, you can rename Categories and add Categories so that they better align with your school’s media collection, your departments and programs. You can add Boarding School, Summer School, After School or Pre-School Care, Parent Association, and/or different Campuses.

Group  Page

The term “Groups” in V2 was used both to describe groups of people as well as groups of photos captured of people - ie. classes.  What we realized is that groups were more reflective of programs where different groups of people came together.  Therefore in In V3, we are reserving the term Group for people. The term Page will be used to capture all programs from classes to events to special topics of interest.  A school fundraising initiative or a humanitarian trip to South America can each be its own Page that is open to multiple groups within your school community.

Albums Albums

Albums lived in one or multiple Groups in V2.  When users upload to a Page, it will display the Page name and the Category. The user will be prompted to upload photos to an existing Album or create a new Album on the selected Page. 

MySets and Group Sets My Collections and Shared Collections

In V2, you were able to add photos to a personal Set or you can add members to a set to create a Group Set.  Group Sets could then be shared internally or publicly.  

In V3, Sets are called Collections.  Collections are personal until they are shared. Collaborators can view, contribute or edit a Collection.  My Collections are those you create.  Shared Collections are those that have been shared with you. Once Collections are created, they can be shared internally to Pages or they can be shared publicly via the Slideshow option (for users given this permission).  The icons on the top right corner of the thumbnail displays how you’ve shared the Collection.

Feed - Tiled View (Desktop) Feed - Linear View (Desktop)

Feed stories provide a real-time view of the photos shared by you and members of your community.  V3 has been created to encourage sharing. Users may customize their feed by selecting Favorite Pages. They can then turn on their Favorite Page option to see media on the Pages they selected.

On the desktop, V2 provided a tiled view of uploads and activity on the desktop. This served to provide a quick global view of uploads and activity in Vidigami. 

On mobile, the feed stories were presented as tiles in chronology.
