Dashboard - This is the website where you manage everything you do in Odeum as a publisher.

Publisher - This is the term we use for anyone using the Odeum platform to publish a subscription video service. Its YOU. :)

Subscriber - That's how we consistently refer to your customers - the users who will subscribe to your service.

Apps - We use the term intentionally - it refers to all the natively built apps that we will launch for you in the App Stores.

Platforms - This is how we refer to all the different services you will utilize to publish your apps. For example, the Apple App Store (where subscribers will download your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV apps) is a Platform in Odeum.

Managers - The people who access the Dashboard and modify your Odeum Channel.

Playlist - This is the default term we use for groupings of videos that you may create for your Channel. This term can be changed however, and many of our publishers prefer to call them "Series" or "Channel" or "Category".
