How to add and edit a CTA to your video: 

Keep in Mind:

Your CTA needs to include a URL and can't be a phone number or email address.

  1. Visit your video share page and click Add a Link under your Edit side panel.

  4. Then click Save, and that's it! 🎉

How Auto CTAs work

👉This feature is available to users only who have purchased Loom AI Suite.

Loom will automatically grab the URL you initiated your recording on for your CTA (unless you have a Default CTA set). Here's how it works:

  1. Record a Loom! Then click Edit the link from the edit tab in your video side panel.
  2. You should see the URL where you initiated your recording, has already been added! All you have to do is click Save. ✔️

Please Note: Auto CTA is only supported on Chrome Extension recordings. We hope to support Desktop app recording soon!


If I embed my video, will the CTA button appear?
Yes! However, the placement of CTA buttons on embedded videos cannot be changed. CTAs for embedded videos will automatically be placed at the top right-hand side. 
Can I choose a specific time at which my CTA button appears?
There is no way to set a specific time for a CTA button to appear. However, you can choose to have your CTA displayed at the end of your video. Otherwise, your CTA button will be displayed during the whole duration of your video.
