ADDING CLIPS TO A PRE-EXISTING QUICK LINK
NOTE: Each link can either be copied/pasted into your own email, or emailed through cast it. Recipients can click on the link and immediately watch the selected videos.
"Quick Links" links are live, meaning they can be updated/changed on CIS at any time, even after being sent or viewed, and the information will be updated on the link automatically.
