Editing content

If you are the content owner or an admin, you can edit an item of content on the Edit content screen. You can edit details such as the title, description, thumbnail image, and owner. You can also add transcriptions to posted videos, configure download settings (if enabled), and provide multiple versions of the same content in different languages using the Language Versions tab. 

If you are the content owner or an admin, you can also delete an item of content.

The Edit content screen consists of the following tabs:

Content information tab

The Content information tab allows you to edit information about content uploaded to Fuse.

The table below displays the different editing options available depending on the type of content being edited (such as an article or a video).

Wordings of individual option fields may differ depending on content type.

Scroll left to see all columns in the table.










Edit the title of the content.

Update content with a new file

Click Choose file to replace the uploaded content with a new file.

  • Although it is possible to overwrite an existing SCORM file, we do not recommend doing so as it can create issues with suspend data. Instead, we advise you to upload a new version of the SCORM course. For more information, see Issues with suspend data in SCORM courses.

  • If you choose to overwrite a SCORM course, any previous records for users that have already completed the SCORM course will remain, as the Fuse content ID of the SCORM course stays the same.

For information on editing SCORM courses, see Editing a SCORM course in Fuse.

Click Add a subtitle file to upload an SRT subtitle file.

Transcriptions created using the Convert audio to text feature, above, are automatically added as subtitle files. For more information about transcriptions, see Adding transcripts to videos.

Subtitles may not appear on the video if there are blank lines in the SRT file. If the subtitles are not appearing, check the SRT file to ensure there are no blank lines. If blank lines are present, remove them and re-upload the file.
