How to Set Up Screencasts (Screenshots)

There are three settings for the screencasts when using Time Doctor:
  • Screenshots
  • You can choose the time interval at which screenshots will be taken of the user’s screen(s) while they’re working.
  • Videos (available on Premium Plan)
  • A continuous video of the user’s computer screen(s) will be taken while they’re working, broken down into three-minute chunks.
  • Off
  • No screenshots or videos will be taken.

Note: If a user has more than one monitor connected, the screenshots/videos will be from all of the connected monitors.
You can edit the screencast settings for individual users by going to Settings -> Manage Users. Use the dropdown menu under “Screencasts” to select a time interval for the screencasts as well as to enable/disable this option for your users. Note: If you set the screencast interval setting for nine minutes, the screenshots will not necessarily be taken nine minutes apart because:
  • Each screenshot is taken at a random time within the selected time interval.
  • Starting and stopping the timer may affect when the screenshots are taken.
