gomo makes it easy for users to quickly create, upload, and share videos/courses from any computer or mobile device. Using the Home Container feature, Users will automatically be provisioned their own container to create and upload content into. By default, the containers will be private – only visible to Admins and the User – however, additional permissions can be granted depending on your company’s needs.

Enabling the Home Container

The first step in setting up the Home Container is creating a Top-Level Container (or nested container) to be designated as the Home Container. This works best at the Top-Level or root level. This will be the container that houses all of the individual user containers, you can title it whatever you’d like and can change the title or description at any time.

Once you’ve created the container, copy the container ID found at the end of the container URL.

Open the Platform Settings and scroll down to find the Home Container section. Click the toggle to the right to turn on the feature – the toggle will remain orange until the information is saved.

For the Home Container Location ID, paste the container ID you just copied from the URL of the designated container. You can also add an optional description that will appear for each users' container. When finished, click save to enable the Home Container.

Once the Home Container is enabled, nested containers for each user will immediately be created inside the designated container. Any time a new user is added to the platform, a container will automatically be created for them.


  1. A new container is created for every single user of the platform. So this container can get very large with content. Using the filtering or search options can help you find specific users' private container.
  2. By default, each user will only see his/her container. They will not be able to see other users' content. If you'd like users to be able to see others' content, simply give the All Regular Users group the Content Viewer permission to the entire Home container.
