Add in-context feedback while recording

While you’re recording, you can now add in-context comments to help you flag critical moments in the video to your team members.

Just click on "Add comments" and select an area of the screen to start commenting.

Mentions are a direct way to notify people of something that needs their attention. If you mention them, they will receive a notifications.


If you're a keyboard shortcut person, shortcuts are now available in Claap. Just click on the help icon to quickly access the list.

Some of our favorites:

  • Add in-context comment during recording: CTRL + Shift + C

Autopause on comments
