These companies already trust FlowShare to create guides that run their business

The way companies document their processes is dead

*Here’s what’s happening in most companies:

No standard process for documentation

Everyone documents their processes as it suits them (if ever) on TOP of day-to-day business.

Processes only exists in their heads.

No one really knows how a particular process works in the company, because it has never been documented.

They have a migration project and no clue how to document hundreds of new processes

They need to document hundreds of processes during a software rollout (ERP, CRM, …) but don’t really know how without blowing the timeline and budget of the migration project.

It takes them weeks to create guides

They spend weeks creating guides manually with snipping tools, Word, etc. or complex authoring tools.

They don't even start documenting

Most employees don’t even start documenting because it’s so tedious and time consuming.

Their guides are quickly outdated

Due to updates their documentations or training videos are quickly outdated and no longer usable.

There is no consistency

All the company's manuals look completely different - sometimes the image takes a whole page, sometimes it’s the size of a stamp, branding is off.

Waste budget on additional training

They have to hire expensive trainers due to insufficient user manuals just to refresh software skills.

It takes weeks to onboard new employees

New hires are not productive when looking over (or tapping on) the shoulder of current employees, who also are kept away from their actual job.

No one watches the training videos

They use videos to train their staff, but employees come up with questions constantly showing that no one watches the trainings.

Doing documentation doesn’t mean you have to take the team away from their current responsibilities, write out every single step of the process and waste hours of your valuable time to keep up or up to date.

There's a better way to create documentations how to manuals process guides work instructions

With FlowShare you go through your task as you normally would and it creates a step-by-step guide including screenshots, arrows and text instructions. It documents your entire process as you do it.

Here's how it works in FlowShare

1. Open up FlowShare and start any task.

As you do the task, FlowShare documents every click, input screen and action you take in the background.

FlowShare will capture and record anything you see on your screen in any application, web browser or desktop.

2. Bulk edit and adjust your new process.

When you’re done, you can review and revise every step. 

Bulk crop your guide to create more focus. Blur hundreds of images at once to hide sensitive data. Add and move markups, edit texts … 

3. Publish and share your new process.

When you are ready to share your new guide, select the format you want to export to: PDF, PPTX, DOCX, HTML or PNG. 

FlowShare automatically formats the new guide with your company brand, logo, colors and fonts – so you can share it with your colleagues or customers! 

You can update your process at any time and re-export with changes.

FlowShare does not make any changes in system directories and only changes the registry in its own directories.

Senior citizens use FlowShare to transfer their know-how. If they can do it, so can you.

No, FlowShare is not a screencast tool. If you are doing training videos for software – you might consider trying FlowShare as you get the guide in the same time it would take you to capture a video plus you can easily update it without having to re-record it again. A video is outdated as soon as it’s recorded and while you have to re-do the entire video if a process is updated – you can easily update any process in FlowShare. 

Our custom TrackingEngine that FlowShare is built on allows us to access even the most customized applications that run on windows and in browsers.

The only requirement on your device is a 64-bit system.

Size should not be an issue unless you are using a device from the 90’. Compared to a 500 mb video you would have of your process, you’ll have a 20 page PDF guide. 

The file size depends on 

  • your screen resolution
  • number of steps in your guide
  • chosen export format

For reference:. a 200-steps exported Word document at HD resolution is approximately 19 MB in size. 

No. FlowShare does not make any changes in system directories and only changes the registry in its own directories. The introduction of FlowShare in your company should therefore succeed smoothly even under strict IT-regulations.
