Before we proceed...

If you haven’t learned about how to create a Highlight yet, head over there first, then come back here to learn about how to create a Story.

Now that you’ve created some Highlights, you can begin linking them together to create a Story.

When you put together your Highlights, you can create visually appealing stories that would have otherwise taken days or weeks to create. Grain makes it simple: no Final Cut Pro needed.

Grain Stories are created to influence the product roadmap, to close more deals, or to rally cross-functional teams around the voice of the customers.

Regardless of your role, you can use Grain to tell powerful Stories and make an impact.

How to create a Grain Story

1. Sign in to Your Grain Workspace

Sign in to your Grain workspace, head to My Library or your Workspace Library and go to the Stories tab. Click on New Story in the upper right corner.

2. Add Sections and Highlights‍

Once you’re in, you can add the basic details including Title, Description, and Background. Feel free to #tag your Story to access it easily at a later point in time.

Now comes the fun part: just click on “+ Add New Highlight” to drop the highlights into your Story. You can add as many highlights as you’d like and group the highlights based on the context using Sections.

Here’s an example:

3. Share Your Story

Is your Story ready? Just click on ‘Share’ to share it with your team/customers. That’s it!

Create a Story from your Recording

You can create or add to a Story directly from your meeting. Here’s how to do it:

1. Navigate to your highlights tab beneath the recording

2. Click on the three-dot menu next to your desired highlight

3. Select Add to Story and choose where to add your highlight

Pro tip: If you’re looking to convert all the highlights from a recording into a Story, then open the recording and click the three-dot menu on the top right and hit “Add all Highlights to Story”. All the highlights will be stitched together — ready for you to share.
