Feature request - Managing content

ImABoltFan's picture

You should create a means of adding previously created content into a new content item. For example, I should be able to add a hotspot as an element into an interactive video.

Also, on the "Features request" page there should be a simple "Add new request" link. It is too difficult to navigate presently.

Thanks, and keep up the good work!

Supporter votes Members of the Supporter Network can vote for feature requests. When the supporter network has generated sufficient funding for the top voted feature request it will normally be implemented and released. More about the H5P Supporter Network

Hi ImABoltFan,

This is indeed very helpful efficiency wise, nice suggestion.

We'll take in to consideration your suggestion in the "Feature Request" page. I've also moved this post in the Feature Request forum for better visibility.

It would be really great, if there would be the possibility to copy/paste elements between different items. I'm not sure, if this is meant above, but this would be my idea of it.

For example, I made a course presentation an now I want to use some (but not all) slides in another presantation. (I could copy the whole presentation and edit it afterwards, but what if I want to merge zwo or more existing presentations, grabbing the best parts of its together?)

At the moment, all you can do is re-create the conent, which is not effective and really not helpfull if you have some kind of remix-settings in mind...

Hi Foorbie,

This is an awesome idea. Would you mind creating a separate request for this. In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:



  1. It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learners will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”

  2. If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps

  3. Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type


Make sure you post the feature in the Feature Request forum.
