Pros: It's super easy to use.
You can store your videos straight to Google Drive.
You can crop the videos after you have finished recording.

Cons: The video editor does not have a lot of features. I find missing a "Merge" functionality, to combine several screencasts.
Also, a plugin for other browsers -it currently supports Chrome- would be useful.

Very Usefull!

Pros: Easy to use and useful for daily work.
I love that it's an extension in Chrome. The ease of saving videos in my Google Drive and sharing those links is definitely the biggest advantage.

Cons: No cons about screencastify.
Perhaps it is sometimes slow to start and doesn't work if you don't grant permissions for webcam and microphone access.

Overall: Makes my daily work easier

Great for how to videos.

Pros: It is easy to use, the video quality is pretty good, and the files are automatically saved to Google Drive, which makes the files easy to find.

Cons: The editing features could use some improvement, so that you don't have to re-record everything over and over. The ability to save different file types would also be helpful.

Amazing product - highly recommended!

Pros: Easy to use, automatically uploads to Google Drive and creates a sharing link with 1 click, allows cropping duration or part of screen, selecting to record tab or whole screen, audio from tab, user or off.
I've tried lots of other screencasting offerings and this is by far the best I've used. Soon after purchase I got in touch with some questions about how to do a couple of things and they were prompt and polite and answered everything. Seriously, this software is amazing and I use it most days and love it!

Overall: The ability to quickly and easily capture screen recordings on my Chromebook and share them via Google Drive.

Pros: I love that it's an extension in Chrome. The ease of saving videos in my Google Drive and sharing those links is definitely the biggest advantage.

Cons: The UI feels clunky at times. It is sometimes slow to start and while I understand that may just be my connection, the lack of an offline option is also a drawback.

Overall: It's helps increase my productivity and communication between myself and my accounts.

Hey Mary, thanks so much for your review! We truly appreciate it. One quick note - Screencastify does work offline (though of course you won't be able to save to your Google Drive until you go back online). So even if you're offline, just click record and everything should work fine - though again the video will only save locally until you go back online. Please let me know if you have any questions or trouble recording offline. Thanks again! James

Wonderful tool for sharing what is seen over several clicks without needing a screen share meeting!

Pros: I can capture several steps I take in a short video and share this with my support team who happens to be in a different time zone. This is often much more handy than taking multiply screenshots or scheduling a meeting. It speeds up the process of getting answers and moving forward.

Cons: I often record a video using the quick launch buttons only to later realize that I wasn't logged in to my account; I have to re-record my session.

Overall: I use this tool so much in my job. It helps with how the world does business today, which is not always face-to-face. It is a definite time saver as well.

Pros: Installed Screencastify a few months ago and got going with it instantly. Zero learning curve. I originally downloaded it to make a product demo, but I've used it for so many other things since. We just launched a new website and I had a friend navigate it while Screencastify was recording. I could see where his eyes and mouse went naturally. Super helpful.

Cons: I wish the editing features were a little more robust, as you can only trim the ends or crop the size.
