Auto Publish Captions (Relay Hosted)

When auto generating closed captions with Hosted Relay it would be helpful to have an auto publish option.

I recognize that there are situations where you want to review before making the captions available to viewers. In some instances the auto generated stuff is good enough. It would be nice to have a checkbox  or a second generate and publish option from the drop down when you generate captions.

The trouble with having to manually publish every time is in itself time. I manage and upload videos to multiple user libraries. After I have set multiple videos to generate captions I then have to go back later and publish those captions.

I most often begin the generation at the end of the day. If they auto publish they are ready where in they might have to wait until the next day or even though the weekend until staff comes back on duty. Our videos are used for classes and mostly correct captions available sooner than possibly several days later would be most beneficial.

Thanks for this bit of feedback! The quality of the automated captioning has improved over the years and adding an auto-publish option is very much within reason. We plan to improve some of the workflows around captioning and we will look to incorporate this with those changes.
