Explain anything in 10 seconds in Slack. Here are different options to do it and also a walkthrough video.

CloudApp and its screen recorder, screenshot tool for mac and PC, and GIFmaker can help to get your point across quickly.

5 easy steps:

1) Cmd + Shift + A for Mac, Alt + Shift + 0 for Windows

2) Select the area you want to screenshot

3) Add arrows, text, blur any sensitive information

4) Cmd + S for Mac, Ctrl+ S for Windows or click the Button ‘Save’

5) Paste the link that was automatically copied to your clipboard in Slack

Other option: Use our ‘Share to’ buttons to send your annotation to your favorite app.

If you haven’t done it before, you will be prompted to enable our Slack integration first.
