How to Create a Step-by-Step Procedure (With Screenshots) Using ScreenSteps [Video]

When people begin using ScreenSteps, the focus is often on the knowledge base and the search capabilities and some of the cool features like checklists, foldable sections, and decision trees.

But sometimes it’s the simple things in ScreenSteps that make the biggest difference — like capturing a screenshot, annotating that screenshot, and replacing old screenshots with new ones. That’s what I’m going to show you in this video.

In the 8-minute video below, I'll show you how simple it is to create a brand new article with screenshots, annotate the screenshots, add some text, and then update a screenshot in the desktop editor.

What it takes to use ScreenSteps in Word, Pages, or Google Docs

If you’ve ever written procedures with screenshots in Word or Pages or Google docs, then you know the headache of getting a screenshot, drawing arrows on it in something like Microsoft paint, and then trying to place that image within text.

And if you need to replace a screenshot, get ready to spend the next hour reformatting the entire document to fit the new screenshot.

How ScreenSteps simplifies documenting procedures

ScreenSteps takes care of that headache by incorporating all of those things into one editor. I can get new screen grabs with the built-in screenshot tool, add annotations to them, and place them within text.

Paragraphs aren’t going to jump around on the page. And when you replace an image, the original annotations stick around, and you can still move those annotations around or resize them or delete them.

See your procedures in ScreenSteps

Documenting your procedures takes more than words on a page. You also need screenshots and annotations to show your employees how to  complete your procedures.
