Video capture and voice over capabilities for the Playback Mode

It would be nice to have the capabilities of recording or capturing the flow in the Playback mode. Also, it would be nice to be able to record a voice over as well for the flows captured.

    You can now embed Youtube, Vimeo, or Daily Motion videos into your textual documentation, including the documentation associated with your playbacks. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your request, Carren! While we love the idea, there are so many great video capture tools out there already in the marketplace..... we don't envision building video capture technology into Blueworks Live. You can certainly use other tools to record the playback and you could link to the recording from the Doc tab so that users could easily play the recording when viewing the process diagram or playback. However, we think that the ability to record voiceover narration and to play it back when stepping through the process would be a great addition to the Playback feature so we will add that to our long term roadmap!
