The Ask-Me-Anything is a fun and engaging way to create an interview. Questions are usually collected on Siemens social channels beforehand and then answered by our experts in short text answers or video clips.
What do I need?
Best practice to collect questions for the Ask-Me-Anything is using a Social Media post on Instagram or LinkedIn. We have received lots of interesting questions from many curious followers and had a high engagement on these posts.
Based on the collected questions, you can start selecting the ones you want to answer and how you want to answer them. You have three answer options: text, image or YouTube/MS Stream embed.
When you have collected all questions and created all answers, you can start creating the Ask-Me-Anything on Siemens Blog
Then you see a field that says “YouTube video ID”. You can paste the whole YouTube URL in the field, the video ID is taken automatically. (Just in case you are wondering: the YouTube video ID follows the ?= in the URL, in this case it is: ZLSbdw3eiJk)
The trash icon on the right side allows you to delete this single question if needed.
If you chose the internal audience, copy the “Embed” code offered on MS Stream and paste it into the field. The rest of the settings are the same. Please note: For MS Stream, videos need to have “Allow everyone in your company to view this video” selected under Permissions. You can select this while uploading a video or when clicking on “update video details”.
