Take a Snapshot

What is a Snapshot?

A "Snapshot" is a screenshot that Plus can automatically take for you, over and over, on a schedule or on demand.

Taking a Snapshot

Taking a Snapshot with the Plus browser extension
You can take a Snapshot of virtually any site or app that you can access in a browser.
  1. 1.
    Navigate to the page with the dashboard or chart you want to capture.
  2. 2.
    Open the Plus extension and click on "Take a Snapshot." Or use the Shift + Cmd + S shortcut (Shift + Ctrl + S on Windows)
  3. 3.
    A new window will pop up where you can take the Snapshot.
  4. 4.
    Scroll to the chart or area you want to capture. Click and drag to draw a box to capture your Snapshot, just like taking a screenshot.
On some apps and sites, we also highlight the most commonly captured content and offer a one click capture option. These elements will be outlined in blue and you can click "Take Snapshot" to capture them. Learn more about smart capture
Your Snapshot is now queued and will be processed automatically. You can immediately rename your Snapshot or change how often it automatically refreshes. You can also take another Snapshot on the same page or close this recording window.

Where are the Snapshots I've taken?

As soon as you take a Snapshot, it will appear in your extension and app in a pending state. It can take up to a minute for a Snapshot to finish processing.
You can find your most recent Snapshots in the extension to easily check whether the capture was good. You can also copy the share link, refresh the Snapshot, or delete it.
