Navigating OpenPoint's Youtube Playlists

OpenPoint has a large library of YouTube videos available to view that contain tutorials on different aspects of using the OpenPoint service. Sometimes it can be difficult searching through the entire library of videos to find just one, though, and that’s where our playlists come in handy. Each playlist focuses on just one subject, and all videos that fit that subject can be found there. Some playlists even have a bit of overlap. Here, I will list each playlist and include a short blurb about the contents as well as a link to the playlist.

  • OpenPoint Web – This playlist contains all videos focusing on using the OpenPoint Web service. Here you can find information ranging from accessing inventory and jobs to adding new users and running reports. OpenPoint Web Playlist
  • SQL Server Management Studio – Any tutorials explaining SSMS processes vital to OpenPoint can be found in this playlist. SSMS Playlist
  • OpenPoint Map Search and Selection – Videos here focus entirely on searching and selecting features or other objects in ArcGIS Pro or OpenPoint map. Some tools may be available in ArcGIS Pro, but many are also OpenPoint specific. Search and Selection Playlist
