Screen sharing – it’s an awesome invention, right? You can quickly and easily show someone exactly what you are doing in an app without having them physically appear behind your shoulder. 

Except there is one big downside, screen sharing needs to be done in real-time. What about all those times where someone needs to see how to perform an on-screen action when you are not there? 

Enter Kami’s Screen Capture tool!


What is the Screen Capture Tool?


The Screen Capture tool allows you to create a short video of your screen and link it to your file as a Kami annotation. 



By simply clicking the tool you can perform an action on any tab you have open (e.g. in Kami you may want to draw an answer) and Kami will record and store it as a comment within the file you are working on.

Screen Capture can also record sound so you can talk through your action as you are doing it for added clarity!


How to use the Screen Capture Tool


Using the screen capture tool is super easy.  The tool itself is found in the toolbar under the ‘Comment’ section. 



  1. Click on the area of your document you would like the screen capture annotation to be linked to. 

  2. If you have multiple screens or tabs open a dialogue window that will ask you to choose which you want to share. 

  3. Select your screen.

  4. Crack on and record the action that you want to. 

  5. When you have finished, press the blue ‘done button’ and the recording will finish.
