What about my old 'Video Types'?

Based on customer feedback, we’ve added more categories, and new categories which are more aligned to our customer’s video projects. 

Old 'Video Types' do not map exactly to the new 'Video Categories'. Because some of the new categories never existed, automatically relabelling old videos would result in incorrect categorisation. For example, your old ‘Message’ video types don’t perfectly map to the new categories ‘General Comms’ and ‘Executive Comms’

As this will affect all of your account's historical data, we made the difficult decision to transition to an incomplete data set - which you have the ability to correctly classify - rather than provide your team with bad insights and bad data.
