- Once logged in, you will see a list of your clips to record. Begin the recording process by clicking the icon. From here you can edit the script (which will appear on the bottom of the screen while recording), subject, or recipient.
- Once the Clip Script section contains all of your desired information, click select media.
- On the Record Settings screen, you can choose what elements of your desktop you would like to be used in the recording process by clicking them. Once complete, click Start Recording. To stop recording, click the blue checkmark to the bottom left of the recording screen.
