When to Use Screen Capture

 

Screen recording software is an essential tool all businesses should use when communicating with colleagues, customers, and others. It can help simplify explanations by providing visual content that’s easier to digest than lengthy descriptions. It can be used to refer to ideas, projects, external websites, and much more without using a description that explains how to navigate to the specific content. Screen captures allow others to see a glimpse of what you see–meaning they can be particularly useful for sharing snippets, such as what your screen looks like from your device,  personal account, browser or software. Sharing perspective is key for teams, and screen captures are a great way to contribute and communicate effectively.
