"Great Product -- Free and Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

As a G-Suite and Chrome browser user, it took me about a minute to setup and start recording. The product is FREE (with limitations) but I am considering to upgrade since the product is a lot cheaper than competing products. The user interface is very intuitive and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The FREE version is limited to recording only 10-mins and has the Screencastify watermark displayed. It would be nice if I could directly upload my videos to YouTube and if I could highlight the mouse pointer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a free screen recording product that is easy-to-use and has good quality, Screencastify is definitely one of the best products on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes it's difficult to communicate information just using email or chat messages. Especially when your colleagues are in a different time-zone, it makes it even more challenging. I try to solve this problem by creating short presentations or explainer videos sharing my screen and sending it as link via Google Drive or YouTube to my colleagues, clients and even friends.

"Excellent tool - especially for Chrome users"

What do you like best?

I initially found Screencastify out of necessity when needing a screen-capture recording tool that I could use on my Chromebook. Chromebook users cannot install local software and Screencastify was perfect because I could install the extension on my browser and easily record my screen & or my embedded webcam for instructional videos.

What do you dislike?

I wish the stop recording button was accessible via stop button toward the bottom screen when hovered over vs. having to go to the top and click. It would be a time saver and I wouldn't have to edit out that time. Also I would like to have a better editor with more functionality. I usually export and do my trimming because the editor doesn't show a time bar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Forget costly licenses to Camtasia - this is a portable tool that is very budget friendly and easy to use. I recommend this to anyone needing to do a simple screen sharing capture. It will export to MP4 and host your videos in the cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is an extremely easy tool that is very budget friendly.

"Makes Online Tutorials a Breeze! "

What do you like best?

Screencastify is the easiest way to troubleshoot online issues that our clients are going through. In just a few easy steps I am able to share my screen, talk through the steps and share video files so that my client can get an easy, personal, step-by-step guide.

What do you dislike?

So far, not a thing! I've loved every aspect of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it and have fun!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When clients have trouble navigating their software programs like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, I am able to conduct a short "how to" video to show them how to fix their problem. I've also been able to help clients upload their artwork to our dropbox folder so that we can access and print their needs.

"Use Screencastify for Tutorial Videos for Work"

What do you like best?

We love Screencastify. We end up using them for tutorial videos for work all of the time. At first, I thought we would have to hire people to make these, but I end up making these tutorials myself and they work great. Highly recommend.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. Sometimes, I think it would be nice if there were music options for my tutorials that could be added into the videos while using Screencastify. Other than that - nothing. Simple and Easy!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend Screencastify. Very easy to use and very inexpensive. We love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We make tutorials for clients. So we're recording our software. It's saving me a ton of money that I thought I would have to hire for, instead I can make them myself.

"quick install easy to use"

What do you like best?

It's free! It takes a second to install and learn how to use it. It saves your videos automatically into one folder, for easy quick future reference.

What do you dislike?

The free version leaves their logo on it. You cannot also edit the videos after recording on the free version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving my testing of sites, I am also saving things I find useful. I am solving the issue of misrepresenting an issue encountered by recording a video.
