What if my Shorts video was used as media for one of my topics?

If one of your topic’s media includes a Shorts video, it will no longer show after September 1, 2023. We recommend you upload your Shorts video to My videos and replace your topic media with the downloaded video. Learn how to add or remove media to your topic
