2. Setting Up Screencastify

This page is for first time Screencastify users. If you have already setup Screencastify, please continue to Step 3 -- Recording with Screencastify. 

After Screencastify is installed, click the small film strip icon next to your URL bar to activate the set up process.

In order to know where to store videos and set certain defaults, Screencastify will ask you the following:

  1.  Choose Where to Store your Recordings. 

(Recommended) Recordings saved to  Google Drive will automatically store to your Drive in a folder titled Screencastify. Sharing, deleting, etc will be controlled via the G-Suite permissions. More on this in Step 5 -- Sharing.  

Recordings saved locally can be found and downloaded in the  Your Recordings page from within the extension.  More on the Your Recordings page in Step 4 -- Post Production, Trimming, and Cropping


 2.   Sign In

Sign in with your Google Account. This can be any Google based domain. Upgraded license users: Be sure you are using the email address that you used to make the purchase. 

   3.   Setup Tab Recording (optional)
