✨ Introducing Trainual Capture. ✨


📋 Overview

The Trainual Capture Chrome extension records each step you take in an online platform right as you do it. It automatically compiles your activity to create a step-by-step training manual that you can add to Trainual.

By using this tool, you'll increase your efficiency, maximize your production, and speed up turnaround time for delivering new training.


🏗 To set up the Trainual Capture Chrome extension:

  1. Navigate to the Trainual Capture Chrome extension page in the Chrome Web Store and select "Add to Chrome"

  2. Allow the extension to "Read and change all your data on all websites" by clicking "Add Extension" from the pop-up window (this grants permission to the extension to track and record each page you navigate to as you document your process.)

    🔥 Tip: Pin the extension to the top of your browser for easy access. Just click on the puzzle piece icon in the upper right-hand corner of your Chrome browser and click on the pin icon to the right of the Trainual extension.

  3. Log in to your Trainual account and copy your account URL at the top of your browser. You can be on any page when you copy this link. It will be in the format: app.trainual.com/example (like shown below).

  4. Click the Trainual Capture Chrome extension icon and sign in to your account using the URL from step 3 and the login credentials associated with your Trainual account.

    That's it! You've just set up the Trainual Capture Chrome extension. 🎉


📸 To capture a process:

  1. Navigate to the Internet site you use for your business process.

  2. Set up your page — you'll want to ensure everything is in place to document your process before you begin capturing. This will eliminate any unwanted steps.

  3. Open the Trainual Capture Chrome extension and click "Start capture." You'll see a flash notification that the capture has started.

  4. Complete each action of the process step-by-step as you normally would. Trainual Capture will record each click you make and capture screenshots.

  5. Finish the capture by clicking on the purple checkmark in the lower left-hand corner of your browser. You can also "Pause" or permanently "Delete" the capture from this menu.

  6. Edit your capture as needed. You can change the capture banner, each step image, and each step title using the icons highlighted below. Note that you can make these edits later if you'd rather.


  7. Click on "Share" from the upper right-hand corner of the capture and choose "Add to Trainual" from the list after completing your edits. Then name your step and click "Add" to push it through.

    🚨 Important note: Your capture does not save to your Chrome extension, so be sure to add your capture to your Trainual account before navigating away from the editing page.

  8. You'll find your capture in "Draft" status under a "Trainual Captures" subject name in the Processes section of your account.

    📝 Please Note: If you rename this current subject, a new "Trainual Captures" subject will be created when you create your next capture. If you'd like to keep your current "Trainual Captures" subject for all future captures to default to, you can move each created step one at a time to a different location in your account. Simply click the three-dot menu to the left of your step to do so.

Great job! You've just completed your first capture. 🥳
