Automatically generated step-by-step guides

When users click record, Scribe will track keypresses and clicks to create a step-by-step guide. These guides come with written instructions and screenshots. Users can also crop, annotate, and hide sensitive information from the autogenerated screenshots.

Scribe Pages

Users can combine Scribe process documents and add text, descriptions, hyperlinks, and videos. Pages give users the flexibility to make process guides their own.

Customizable text, steps, and images

With Scribe, users can personalize guides to add tips, additional info, or combine documents. Users can also duplicate and repurpose Scribes for multi-support functionality.

One-click sharing and embed

Scribe is shareable via links and can be embedded in most knowledge bases, CMS platforms, or wikis.
