We just introduced two spanking new features on Funnel: The ability to attach preview videos to your proposals and the ability to link blog posts from the event blog to proposals!

We think it is a good idea to extend this to proposals and let proposers use videos as a medium to effectively and crisply communicate what they are proposing to cover in their session. An effective and well curated video also increases the chances of receiving more votes!
So, we made it easy for you to attach preview videos to your proposals with the click of a button!
You can just use the edit link located below the title on your proposal page on funnel as shown below, to update your proposal with your preview video!
